Biology - Assistant Professor

Coe College seeks applications from vertebrate biologists who have the interests and skills needed to direct and manage Coe College's Wilderness Field Station beginning August 2015. We seek an individual who will develop excellent courses in organismal and ecological biology, contribute to introductory courses for biology majors and involve undergraduates in field research. An earned doctorate in vertebrate behavior or ecology is required, with preference given to candidates with expertise in ornithology. Evidence of administrative and grant-writing skills is also required. A more detailed description of Coe College, the Biology Department and the position follows.

Coe College, a highly selective liberal arts college of 1,300 students, is located in a progressive, Eastern Iowa metropolitan area of 200,000. The area offers the usual range of urban amenities, including a thriving symphony and art museum. The University of Iowa and Iowa City are thirty minutes away. Cedar Rapids is located roughly midway between the Midwest's largest urban centers, easily accessible via a regional airport ten minutes from campus.

The Biology Department supports the biology major and collateral majors in Molecular Biology, Environmental Science and Neuroscience, in addition to courses required by the Nursing and Athletic Training majors. Biology professors teach four courses each year, consisting of lecture courses and their associated laboratory sections. The successful candidate will teach three courses on campus during the regular school year. These courses will include two vertebrate behavior or ecology courses with field labs (one each semester) and other courses as needed to support the biology major or general education requirements in laboratory science. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in ornithology and with the potential to provide research experiences for undergraduates.

Coe owns and operates the Wilderness Field Station (WFS) on Low Lake near Ely MN (http://www.public.coe.edu/fieldstation/index.html). Located on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), it offers two sessions and six courses of undergraduate instruction each summer. The final quarter of the successful candidate's teaching load will be a course with lab taught during the summer at the WFS. This opens up hours during the Spring Semester for the successful candidate to travel to other colleges as Director of the Wilderness Field Station to recruit students for the upcoming summer sessions. Other administrative duties of the Director include scheduling courses, recruiting faculty and working with them to plan camping trips in the BWCAW and Quetico National Park, and spending summer sessions on site in northern Minnesota. Evidence of administrative and grant-writing skills is required.

Application Instructions
