Canadian Mennonite University invites applications for a full-time, three-year faculty position in Biology.
The successful candidate will work with other faculty to develop a growing undergraduate science program, which is an integral part of all our undergraduate degree paths. We seek individuals who love to teach in the classroom and laboratory, inviting students to be creative and rigorous in formulating and answering scientific questions. The candidate will teach introductory biology, genetics, and cell biology, and have opportunity to develop complementary courses. Research experience involving botanical, fungal, or microbiological (eukaryotic or prokaryotic) systems is an asset, but not essential. Capacity to work with diverse model organisms is important.
CMU is a Christian liberal arts university rooted in the Mennonite tradition.

Applicants should hold a PhD or be near completion of their doctorate, have a solid theoretical and methodological background, a strong record of scholarly research, and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching.
