The University of New Hampshire at Manchester invites applications for a tenure-track, full-time faculty position in Biotechnology at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 2017. UNH Manchester, the university’s urban campus, serves New Hampshire’s largest, most diverse, and rapidly growing community. The College actively creates and nurtures a dynamic learning environment in which qualified individuals of differing perspectives, life experiences, and cultural backgrounds pursue academic goals with a mutual respect and shared spirit of inquiry. The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Programs are actively encouraging the application of a diverse pool of candidates, seeking to further the Programs' commitment to inclusion of underrepresented groups. The new Biotechnology Program at UNH Manchester is expanding opportunities for students to develop hands-on laboratory skills and get practical experience in on-campus, local, and regional internship and research placements that will readily lead to employment or advanced training in the STEM and healthcare fields. We seek highly qualified candidates with demonstrated excellence in teaching, advising, mentoring undergraduate students, and supervising undergraduate research. The candidate is expected to maintain a productive research program involving undergraduate students and provide service to the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Programs, college, and university. The teaching load at the college is 3-3, although assistant professors are given a course release after their third year and may also apply for an additional course release to enhance their research programs. Instructional responsibilities include regular teaching of core courses in the majors, including Principles of Biology and Senior Seminar, and teaching upper-level elective courses such as Molecular Biology and Biotechnology; Cell Culture; Protein and Immunologic Techniques; and other advanced courses in areas of expertise. Faculty also support the UNH Discovery Program, the core curriculum of the University. Candidates must have a PhD in a relevant discipline at time of appointment and related work experience including teaching experience at the post-secondary level. The ability to establish and maintain an active research program that engages undergraduate students is required. Based on current expertise in the Biological Sciences and Biotechnology Programs, applicants with a research focus in eukaryotic molecular genetics or eukaryotic cellular biology, able to make use of the new Cell Culture Research Laboratory, would be especially welcome. UNH Manchester does not have facilities for maintaining vertebrate animals or room for housing large invertebrates. Modest start-up funds for outfitting the candidate’s research lab will be available. To apply, please visit http://jobs.usnh.edu/postings/23087. Applicants should be prepared to upload the following required documents when applying online: application letter, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness (typically submitted in the form of teaching evaluations), a brief statement of teaching philosophy (limited to one page), and a brief statement of research interests and plans (limited to one page), and a list of three professional references. Please contact Elizabeth Lathrop, Human Resources Specialist, email@example.com, with questions regarding this position. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled. Background checks may be required prior to employment. The college has recently moved to a new and more expansive campus. The college is also engaged in designing a strategic plan that proposes that all of the college’s programs strengthen their curricula by including enhanced opportunities for experiential education (e.g., internships, community based research, co-ops, etc.).
