Lecturer in Biology (BIOL 221)

The Biology Department at Lake Forest College seeks an adjunct faculty member to teach one lab section of our core course, Molecules, Genes, and Cells (BIOL 221), during the spring semester of 2022. This teaching assignment counts as one course prep with the expectation of providing four hours per week of laboratory teaching and additional office hours. If desired, there is the possibility of teaching a second lab section (of five total lab sections). Labs are already in place with a focus on experimental design. Although a PhD is desirable, candidates having several years of graduate study will be considered. Possible days are Tuesday or Friday afternoons from 12-3:50 PM. Spring semester at Lake Forest College extends from January 11th  – May 4th.

A highly selective liberal arts college located on Chicago’s North Shore, Lake Forest College enrolls approximately 1,600 students from more than 40 states and from more than 70 countries. Lake Forest is one of the most diverse small colleges in the Midwest with nearly 40% of our student body comprised of domestic minority and international students. The majority of our STEM pool is female and also includes a significant number of first generation and traditionally underrepresented students. Lake Forest College embraces diversity and encourages applications from women, members of historically underrepresented groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.

Please send electronically a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and have one letter of recommendation sent electronically to Dr. Karen Kirk, Department of Biology, kirk@lakeforest.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
