  • designing and implementing undergraduate laboratory experiences with an emphasis on an inquiry-based and/or CURE (course-based undergraduate research experience) curriculum that can accommodate up to 1200 students,
  • directing and supervising instructional support staff in all aspects of lab preparation and delivery,
  • implementation of evidence-based pedagogical approaches,
  • contributing to the lower division life sciences curriculum.

This is an academic year, benefited 2-year position and is renewable contingent upon performance. Lecturers at the University of Massachusetts are unionized with the potential for long-term careers with promotional advancement within the Lecturer ranks.
