Primary teaching responsibilities will be a year-long biochemistry sequence with lab and a single semester comprehensive course geared towards pre-professional health majors.

The successful candidate is expected to establish and maintain a productive research program that provides opportunities for undergraduate student research. We are equipped with instrumentation and facilities to support a wide range of scholarships. There are also several mechanisms to obtain both extramural and internal funding.

In particular, data and statistics have shown that candidates who are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, people from working-class backgrounds, people with disabilities, and others with minoritized and marginalized identities may not apply to jobs when they do not believe they meet 100% of the requirements and expected responsibilities listed in the job descriptions. Some responsibilities and skills are teachable and can be learned on the job.
