MICHIGAN STATE UNVERSITY
Postdoctoral Teaching-Scholar in Biology
Lyman Briggs School


Applications are sought for a one-year, August 2000 to July 2001,
Post-Doctoral Biologist to work on an NSF-funded faculty professional
development project in undergraduate science teaching at Michigan State
University, with possible extension for additional years.  Deadline for
applications is August 14, 2000. Candidates should have a strong interest
in undergraduate learning in organismal/population biology, with particular
interest in teaching.  First-hand experience using www technologies is
desired. The post-doc will work in the Lyman Briggs School in the College
of Natural Science and will have the opportunity to develop substantive
credentials in teaching and the scholarship of teaching to add to her/his
science background.

The Postdoctoral Teaching-Scholar will work closely with Dr. Diane
Ebert-May, co-PI, and other faculty members to develop, implement,
evaluate, and assess effective instructional designs and student learning
for introductory biology courses; teach biology laboratories, mentor
undergraduate teaching assistants and collaborate with other postdoctoral
teaching-scholars in the Lyman Briggs School. In addition, the post-doc
will work with faculty from colleges and universities clustered around
biological field stations throughout the U.S.

The successful candidate will join a diverse faculty of scientists,
mathematicians, and humanists who work together in a residential science
learning community devoted to studying the natural sciences and their
impact on society. All under one roof, the Lyman Briggs School (LBS)
encompasses science laboratories, classrooms, faculty and administrative
offices, and student residences. The 1,400 LBS students enjoy the benefits
of a small, liberal arts college and the resources of a research
university. Curious about the natural world around them, LBS's highly
motivated students and faculty work together to learn what is known and
explore what is new.

To apply, send a letter, CV, and names of references to:
