Assistant Professor of Biology – Plant Biology

St. Norbert College invites applications for a tenure track position in Biology at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in August 2022. We seek a broadly trained plant biologist with expertise in plant genetics, plant physiology, and/or plant cell biology. Teaching responsibilities will include cell-level and organismal introductory biology courses, botany, genetics, biochemistry, and other courses reflecting the strengths and training of the applicant. The standard course load for Biologists at St. Norbert College is two classes with labs per semester, with additional opportunities to teach in winter and summer terms. Faculty members in Biology are expected to have a productive research program that provides meaningful experiences for St. Norbert College undergraduates. Other responsibilities will include advising students and being an active member of the College community. The candidate will join the Biology department in a recently expanded and renovated science building that also houses Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and the Green Bay campus of The Medical College of Wisconsin. This is one of two faculty positions to meet the demands of our growing Biology program. A demonstration of teaching effectiveness and a research presentation will be part of the interview process.

St. Norbert College is an equal-opportunity employer and is committed to enhancing the diversity of our people, ideas, and talents. We welcome individuals with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and skills to join our college community in our pursuit of inclusion and excellence. Women and individuals from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The division of Academic Affairs provides safe, inclusive, and anti-racist educational and work experiences for our faculty, staff, and students of color, congruent with our Catholic, Norbertine, and liberal arts values. Therefore, we invite candidates who have research interests, pedagogical experience, or lived experience that demonstrates a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging to join our community of teaching and learning. We are seeking to hire several new faculty members as a part of a cohort of scholars who are committed to meeting together and working as a group to infuse equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDIB) into the curriculum. This past year we conducted a national search to hire an inaugural dean of curriculum and senior diversity officer, highlighting the importance of EDIB work and the curriculum.
