The faculty of Science and Mathematics (PSM) in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts (CISA) on the Polytechnic Campus at Arizona State University (ASU) invite applications for one (1) Instructor position in Anatomy/Biology for the 2024-2025 academic year. Expectations for this position will include course instruction for lower division Biology courses, such as Biology for non-majors and general biology for majors, and additional courses (depending on expertise), such as genetics, anatomy and physiology, and animal physiology. Other responsibilities include: develop course syllabi; write, assign, and grade student assessments and laboratory experiments; review and evaluate effectiveness of teaching methods and work activities; and work with faculty in curriculum development, planning, and implementation. The successful candidate will be part of the Biology team and work alongside chemistry, mathematics, and physics faculty and be dedicated to quality instruction.

Teaching load is typically five courses that equals 15 credit hours per semester or an equivalent combination of lecture and laboratory sections. Course assignments are at the undergraduate level and may include lectures and laboratories and may occur in a variety of modalities (online, on-ground, hybrid) on the Polytechnic campus. Course load is determined by the faculty head.

This is a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure eligible position renewable on an academic year basis contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the university. Candidate must reside in Arizona or be willing to relocate.

ASU's College of Integrative Sciences and Arts is home to innovative teachers who are guided by educational access, student success, applied learning, and interdisciplinary inquiry. CISA has over 8,200 students in all levels of degree programs and 235 full-time faculty members. We understand that there are many paths to achieving a university education, and we build undergraduate and graduate degree programs and pathways that are flexible and relevant for a rapidly changing world.

Arizona State University, ranked the No. 1 “Most Innovative School” in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for eight years in succession, has forged the model for a New American University. Year after year, ASU ranks at or near the top of the list in areas that matter.

ASU operates on the principles that learning is a personal and original journey for each student; that they thrive on experience and that the process of discovery cannot be bound by traditional academic disciplines. Through innovation and a commitment to accessibility, ASU has drawn pioneering researchers to its faculty even as it expands opportunities for qualified students, attracting some of the highest- quality students from all 50 states and more than 130 nations.
