Lecturer in Neuroscience at University of Maryland
The University of Maryland is searching for two Professional Track Faculty to teach undergraduate courses in our newly created interdepartmental, interdisciplinary Neuroscience major. We are looking for people who can help develop, teach, and assume leadership roles in a range of courses such as a large introductory course, mid-level courses covering various neuroscience topics such as cellular/molecular neuroscience, a senior-level lab course, and specialty seminars. One of the new faculty will be affiliated with the Department of Psychology and the other with the Department of Biology.
Start date: August, 2020 (an earlier start may be negotiated)
Best consideration date for applications: February 2, 2020
Applications should be submitted through the University of Maryland eJobs system where there are also further details about the positions:
Applicants applying to either position will be considered for this search and, if successful, offered a position in the department with the best. Although some bureaucratic details will differ, for both positions the professional duties will include teaching in the Neuroscience Major as well as courses within their home department.
Questions can be directed to Dan Butts (firstname.lastname@example.org).
• a completed Ph.D. with a focus on neuroscience, broadly defined
• substantial teaching experience at the college level, preferably in neuroscience-related courses; work solely as a teaching assistant will not generally be sufficient
• evidence of excellence in teaching and long-term commitment to undergraduate education
The most successful applicants will have demonstrated skills in course development, particularly using innovating educational strategies informed by contemporary research on memory and learning.
