Carthage College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the assistant professor rank in BIOLOGY to begin August 2015.

We seek a colleague with broad research interests in cellular biology and enthusiasm for teaching. Applicants should expect to teach introductory biology courses and advanced courses with labs within the major, and to contribute to staffing experimental design and senior thesis courses. Post-doctoral research experience is highly desirable. The successful applicant will be expected to establish a research program that involves teaching and mentoring undergraduates.

Founded in 1847, Carthage College combines an environment of reflection and self-discovery with a culture of high expectation, so that our students uncover and ignite their true potential. As a four-year private liberal arts college with roots in the Lutheran tradition, we place a strong emphasis on both moral and intellectual values. Our prime location in Kenosha, Wisconsin, midway between Chicago and Milwaukee, allows students the opportunity to learn in a professional context. Our beautiful campus, an 80-acre arboretum on the shore of Lake Michigan is home to 150 scholars, 2500 full-time students, and 900 part-time students. Our rich academic experience equips students with foundational knowledge and skill, preparing graduates to be lifelong learners, and to lead meaningful, productive lives.

Interested candidates should submit a single PDF file including a cover letter outlining primary and secondary teaching areas, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching philosophy and scholarly interests, and the names and contact information of three professional references to:
