Part-time Faculty Positions

  • The Department of Biology seeks qualified individuals to teach part-time in its non-majors, undergraduate program.  We currently seek to hire engaging professors who can teach lecture and/or laboratory sections in BIO 200/201 Ecology and the Environment.  

    BIO 200 This course introduces students to the study of organismal interactions: both among organisms, as well as those between organisms and their physical environment. Course topics include the movement of energy through ecosystems, species interactions, population dynamics, and human impacts on other organisms and the environment. Topics will be presented within an evolutionary framework, drawing on connections to human experience as well as other sub-disciplines of biology. Special emphasis will be placed on critical evaluation of scientific information, the scientific method and ecology as a scientific enterprise. Three hours lecture per week. 

    BIO 201 Lab Students in this course will participate in the process of science, through a variety of hands-on investigations in ecology. Activities will be designed to teach key scientific skills such as observation and measurement, manipulation and control of variables, graphical analysis, and the formulation of alternative hypotheses. Elementary statistical concepts will also be explored, via simple spreadsheet analyses. Students will apply scientific principles of experimental design and data analysis to problems drawn from ecology, as well as from everyday life. This course is intended to provide an accessible and relevant hands-on laboratory experience for non-majors, which, together with BIO 200 (Ecology And The Environment), will fulfill their LAC Tier 1 requirement for Natural Science with Laboratory. Two hours laboratory per week.
