Wright State University
Department of Biological Sciences
The Department of Biological Sciences at Wright State University (http://sciencemath.
wright.edu/biology) seeks a non-tenure track faculty member at the Instructor level. This
is a 12-month position, with duties divided as half coordinator of the Introductory Laboratory program
and half instructional faculty. Should the lab coordinator position dissolve, the position will become a
9 month academic-year instructor position.
The Laboratory Coordinator role encompasses oversight of laboratory operations for either 2 or 3
introductory biology courses each semester, with a total during Fall and Spring of approximately 45 lab
sections with 850-950 students each semester. Primary responsibilities of the coordinator include
supervision of undergraduate student workers who will set up the labs, coordination and guidance of
graduate teaching assistants (GTAs), ordering, maintenance, and inventory of equipment and supplies,
and periodic revision of laboratory exercises and laboratory manual development. The coordinator will
supervise student workers in occasional "special projects," such as offering outreach activities (Take our
Sons and Daughters to Work Day, Tech Fest, or others). Finally, the coordinator oversees safety issues in
the laboratory and serves as point of contact for general issues that arise in introductory laboratories
(e.g., weather cancellations, health and safety issues, etc).
The Instructional Faculty role will entail teaching that will include introductory biology courses, along
with opportunities for upper-level courses commensurate with interests and experience. The
department offers coursework that spans a wide range of disciplines within biology. Courses at the
introductory level include "Biology of Food", "Biology of Disease", and "Biodiversity" in the non-majors
sequence and "Cells and Genes" and "Organisms and Ecosystems" in the majors sequence.
Candidates should have demonstrated teaching experience appropriate for the position and experience
managing personnel. Experience in laboratory pedagogy a plus. An M.S. degree in Biology or related
disciplines is required; a Ph.D. is preferred.
Interested applicants should apply through Human Resources at Wright State University:
https://jobs.wright.edu/postings/10819. Review of applications will begin on November 11, 2016.
Preference will be given to candidates who can start prior to the beginning of our Spring semester in January 2017.
Wright State University, an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, is committed to an inclusive environment
and strongly encourages applications from minorities, females, veterans and individuals with disabilities.
