The University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Cellular Biology or Cellular Physiology in the Division of Sciences and Mathematics within the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (SIAS). This is a full-time position with a nine-month service period. The successful candidate will be an intellectually expansive scholar with a proven record in cellular biology, cellular physiology, or related field, with biomedical applications. They will also have a demonstrated commitment to creating an inclusive classroom and laboratory environment with diverse and underrepresented populations. Pedagogical responsibilities include Cellular Biology as well as other required courses for the new B.S. in Biomedical Sciences (such as Human Physiology, Genetics, and Genomics, Biochemistry, or Microbiology). The candidate will also develop and teach undergraduate elective courses in cellular physiology, cellular pharmacology, biomechanics, or developmental biology, in addition to contributing to lower division majors and non-majors courses, depending on the area of expertise. We are looking for candidates who incorporate evidence-based teaching practices (experience with biology education research a plus), will build a dynamic research laboratory of undergraduate research students, will develop innovative and interdisciplinary collaborations, and will establish community-based internship opportunities, in keeping with our urban-serving mission.

The successful candidate will be an integral member of a cohesive group of science faculty and will support and coordinate development of our rapidly growing B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. The position begins September 15, 2018, requires an earned doctorate (or foreign equivalent) in cellular biology, cellular physiology, or related field at the time of appointment, and is contingent on funding. Candidates in the final stages of their dissertation will be appointed on an acting basis.

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was established in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach to education at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students with a wide range of ages and backgrounds from the South Puget Sound region. Faculty have access to the resources of a major research university, including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a unique environment for the development of creative teaching, research and community collaborations. UW Tacoma has an urban-serving mission, with access as a central value. More information about UW Tacoma and its strategic plan can be found here: https://www.tacoma.uw.edu/strategic-planning. The campus commitment to diversity is central to maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth of our campus and the broader community.
