The Department of Biology at Tufts University is seeking a part-time non-tenure track instructor to teach an intermediate-level course in Marine Biology for Biology majors (Bio 164 - Marine Biology) in Spring 2024 (Jan - mid May). The course should survey major marine animal and plant groups and their adaptations to habitats such as the deep sea, coral reefs, estuaries, and the intertidal zone. Ecological impacts of global warming, ocean acidification, and overfishing on marine communities and fisheries could be included. Prerequisites: a year of college biology, or permission of instructor. Enrollment is usually around 40 students. Virtual accommodation of students who are unable to attend in-person sessions may be necessary.
The preferred candidate should have attained an advanced degree in an area related to the biology of marine organisms. Candidates should demonstrate experience in teaching marine biology. We require experience or invested interest in developing inclusive classroom spaces through equitable mentoring and innovative evidence-based pedagogy that promotes success and career enhancement of underrepresented students in STEM.
