The Department of Biology at the University of San Francisco 
(http://www.usfca.edu/) invites applications for a tenure-track 
position at the Assistant Professor level to begin in August, 2005.

Department: The Department offers the Bachelor of Science degree and 
has a small Master's degree program. The large majority of our 
undergraduate students are interested in post-graduate work in health 
and medical science related fields. Faculty interests include cell 
and molecular biology, population genetics, conservation biology, 
immunology, ecology, marine biology, plant physiology, virology, 
animal behavior, and parasitology. (see 
http://www.usfca.edu/biology/faculty.htm.)

Disciplinary Background:  Applications from outstanding candidates in 
any area of biological sciences will be considered.  However, we are 
especially interested in individuals who can contribute to the 
Molecular Biology Emphasis area of our curriculum.  The candidate 
will be expected to develop an independent and ongoing research 
program, and to apply for extramural support. Opportunities are 
available to supervise undergraduate research as well as 
Master's-level graduate students.

Teaching Responsibilities may include introductory Biology courses 
for undergraduate majors and for non-majors, and upper division 
courses in the field(s) of specialty. (Descriptions of the 
undergraduate Biology curriculum and current course offerings can be 
found at http://www.usfca.edu/acadserv/catalog/.)

Qualifications: Applicants should have university teaching 
experience, evidence of scholarship, an earned doctorate in a 
biological field by Spring 2005, experience and willingness to work 
in a culturally diverse environment, and commitment to support the 
mission of the University. (The University Mission Statement can be 
found at http://www.usfca.edu/mission/index.html.)

We particularly encourage minority and women applicants for all 
positions. The University of San Francisco is an Equal Opportunity 
and Affirmative Action Employer, and provides reasonable 
accommodations to individuals with disabilities upon request.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, 
graduate transcripts, brief description of research plans, statement 
of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching ability (including 
available student evaluations), and three letters of recommendation 
to: Search Committee, Department of Biology, University of San 
Francisco, 2130 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94117-1080.

Applications must be received by January 15, 2005 to ensure full consideration.

students in the arts and sciences, business, education, nursing, law 
and professional studies.  The University is a private, Catholic and
