Assistant/Associate Professor of Science

Job Description:

Champlain College invites applications for a faculty position in the Division of Information Technology & Sciences to help the College achieve ambitious new directions in Science-related programs. According to Champlain College's 2030 strategic plan, "Champlain will research, develop, and offer new degrees in emerging STEAM fields." We seek candidates who can teach within the College's current general education curriculum while simultaneously contributing to updating our approach and evolving our offerings as we create new programs in Bio/Life Sciences and beyond. This is an exciting opportunity to build new majors from the ground up, with a commitment to increased diversity and access, and an emphasis on integrated and applied science with a professional focus.

Champlain College is known for having faculty devoted to innovative pedagogy and mentoring students. Enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring students in a collaborative and inclusive environment is essential. The expected start date is July 2023. New hires are normally made at the rank of Assistant Professor but highly qualified candidates may be hired at the rank of Associate Professor.

Primary teaching responsibilities at first will consist of in-class instruction of our general education science courses that serve all majors across the Champlain College campus. Faculty will be expected to teach in-depth and hands-on lab-based courses in Human Biology and related disciplines. Additional responsibilities will include collaborating on new curriculum development and eventual teaching in future new majors.

The typical teaching load is 2-3 lab-based courses per semester. Small class sizes optimize instructor-student interaction at Champlain. While there are no research requirements for retention, ongoing professional activity/development is strongly encouraged and supported. Out-of-classroom responsibilities include course/curriculum development, student advising, industry outreach, student team/project/club supervision, and service to the department, division, and college.
