We have two tenure-track job openings available for Fall 2008 in the 
Biology Department at Bucknell University.  Please forward these job 
descriptions to anyone who may be interested.


The Biology Department at Bucknell University invites applications for two 
entry-level tenure-track Assistant Professor positions to begin August 
2008.  The successful candidates will teach introductory courses for majors 
or non-majors and upper-level courses in their area of specialty.  The 
successful candidate is expected to establish a research program that 
involves talented undergraduates and attracts extramural funding.  Ph.D. or 
ABD, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and a strong research record are 
required.  Postdoctoral experience is preferred.

We are seeking a broadly trained ORGANISMAL, ECOLOGICAL, or EVOLUTIONARY 
BIOLOGIST.  We especially welcome applicants who can contribute to the 
interdisciplinary programs of Neuroscience, Animal Behavior, or 
Environmental Studies, but all research areas will be considered.

We are also seeking a broadly trained CELL or MOLECULAR 
BIOLOGIST.  Applications from candidates with expertise in any cell or 
molecular biology discipline will be considered; areas of particular 
interest that would complement existing strengths in the department are 
neurobiology, immunology, or signal transduction.

Bucknell University is a premier liberal arts university with a 
long-standing tradition of excellence in the sciences.  Start-up funds and 
internal funding for research are available.  Institutional support for 
faculty research includes shared facilities for tissue culture, confocal 
and scanning electron microscopy.  Faculty members typically teach one 
course and two laboratories, or the equivalent, each semester.

To apply, please refer to website: http://www.bucknell.edu/jobs.  Review of 
applications will begin on October 15.  The search will remain open until 
the position is filled.

Bucknell University values a diverse college community and is committed to 
excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff and students.  An Equal 
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, Bucknell University especially 
welcomes applications from women and minority candidates.
