Emory College of Arts and Sciences at Emory University in Atlanta, GA announces a special initiative to recruit excellent scientists and experienced College science teachers with an established commitment and history of effectively mentoring students from underrepresented and underserved populations.
These two lecture-track (open rank) faculty appointments will contribute to our commitment to excellence and diversity in the sciences. The lecture-track hires will complement the appointment of two tenure-track scientists with a demonstrated history of effectively mentoring students from underrepresented and underserved populations.
Questions should be sent to Carla Freeman, Senior Associate Dean of Faculty, [email protected].
Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2016 and continue until positions are filled.
Emory is a private university recognized internationally for its undergraduate Emory College of Arts and Sciences as well as its graduate and professional schools. Together Emory College and the university's seven graduate/professional schools feature renowned faculty and offer more than 100 degree programs and majors, with an enrollment of nearly 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
Emory College's tradition of exceptional teaching and mentorship of undergraduates will be enhanced through this special initiative. As a campus with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women and minorities, and those with a history of mentoring students of underrepresented groups in the sciences.
Candidates for the open-rank lecture-track positions should have outstanding records of teaching, curricular development and advising, and be eligible for a faculty appointment in one or more of the following fields: Biology, Biological Anthropology, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science, Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, Physics or Psychology. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline. Faculty appointments will be made at the Lecture Track rank commensurate with current academic standing and achievement (Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Professor of Pedagogy).
Successful candidates will be encouraged to participate in campus-wide interdisciplinary and departmental programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body.
