Assistant Professor for Biology Tenure Track Faculty Position

Guilford College invites applications for a tenure track faculty position at the rank
of Assistant Professor to begin August 2024. The Biology Department at Guilford
employs experiential, inquiry-based learning to stimulate academic excellence
through independent thinking, interdisciplinary applications, and critical analysis
to develop tomorrow’s leaders in the sciences. A PhD with specialization in
Microbiology or Biochemistry with laboratory and/or field-based research is
preferred. The successful candidate will teach Introductory Biology, Microbiology
and/or Biochemistry as well as additional courses in their area of expertise. The

supervise internships. The department would like to consider someone that
bridges sub-disciplines such as an environmental microbiologist or plant
pathophysiologist who could potentially teach both cell and field related subjects.

programs, including Sustainable Food Systems and Environmental Studies.
Opportunities to develop study away experiences and team-teach courses will
also be available.
