Tenure-Track Faculty Position
Biology Department
Williams College

The Biology Department at Williams College, a premier liberal arts college with a long-standing tradition of excellence in the sciences, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin July 2011.  We are seeking a neurobiologist with research interests in the molecular and cellular aspects of neuronal function.  The successful applicant will teach introductory courses in cellular and molecular biology, intermediate- and upper-level courses in molecular/cellular neurobiology, and participate in the Neuroscience Program.  Normally, faculty members teach one course and two laboratory sections (or the equivalent) each semester.

A research program that attracts extramural funding and involves talented undergraduates is expected, and start-up funds and internal funding for research are available.  A Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, and a strong research record are required.  We anticipate an appointment at the beginning assistant professor level, although a more senior appointment is possible under special circumstances.  Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, brief statements of teaching and research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent by October 22, 2010, to:  [email protected], care of Steven Swoap, Chair, Department of Biology, Williams College, Williamstown, MA 01267.
