Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
The Department of Biology at Appalachian State University seeks to fill three non-tenure track (NTT) faculty positions at the rank of Instructor to start Fall Semester 2020. These are full-time instructional positions with a 12-hour teaching load and State of North Carolina benefits. Currently these positions are funded for one year. Two positions will primarily consist of instruction and preparation for laboratory sections of genetics, cell biology, or molecular biology with opportunities for lecture instruction in human microbiology or environmental studies, depending on qualifications. The third position will primarily consist of introductory biology courses, upper level lecture or laboratory courses in the candidate’s area of expertise, and a career explorations class. One quarter- or one half-time effort for academic and career advising of undergraduate biology majors will be negotiated into the instructional load for one or more of these positions. Expectations for all teaching include the development of instructional strategies and the use of assessment tools for feedback and program evaluation. Modest service activities in the form of departmental committee participation and student recruitment are expected.
