TWO POSITIONS - MOLECULAR GENETICIST AND BIOCHEMIST
The Biology Department of Franklin & Marshall College invites 
applications for TWO VISITING ASSISTANT PROFESSOR POSITIONS, starting 
July 2007. Candidates should have a Ph.D., demonstrated strength in 
teaching and research, and ability to engage undergraduates in 
research. (1) MOLECULAR GENETICIST, three year position. Teaching 
responsibilities include lecture and laboratory sections of a 
junior-level core course in molecular genetics and an upper level 
elective in molecular biology. The successful candidate may 
occasionally contribute to the general education curriculum. (2) 
BIOCHEMIST, one year position (pending administrative approval). 
Teaching responsibilities include lecture and laboratory sections of 
a junior-level biochemistry course emphasizing metabolism and either 
a sophomore-level core course in physiology and development of plants 
and animals or an elective in the area of specialization. Franklin & 
Marshall College has a tradition of excellence in science and student 
research; a new life sciences building will open in summer 2007. In 
addition to the Biology major, we offer interdisciplinary majors in 
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and in Biological Foundations of 
Behavior. Applicants should arrange to have letters sent from 3 
referees and should submit a curriculum vitae, plans for actively 
engaging undergraduates through teaching and research, and 
undergraduate and graduate transcripts. Priority will be given to 
completed applications received by January 15, 2007 (geneticist) and 
February 16, 2007 (biochemist). Electronic submissions will not be 
accepted. Send applications to: Prof. Ira Feit (geneticist) or Prof.
