The Department of Natural and Environmental Sciences is seeking adjunct faculty for Falll 2019 to teach Microbiology, Terrestrial Ecology, Animal Physiology and Earth Science.
Microbiology Adjunct Faculty
Master’s degree or higher in Microbiology or biology related discipline, teaching experience preferred.
This is to teach the 2 credit lab portion of the course Wednesdays 2:00-3:40
This is for the non-science major. The course will cover basic microbiology and the underlying chemical principles. Cellular structure of prokaryotes and eukaryotes will be discussed. The focus of the course will be classification and understanding of the biology of microorganisms. The structure and function of viruses will be covered and the roles microorganisms play in disease. Laboratory sessions will include microbial staining, cultures and growth, nutrition, metabolisms and control of microorganisms
Terrestrial Ecology Adjunct Faculty
Master’s degree or higher in Ecology or biology related discipline, teaching experience preferred.
Terrestrial Ecology (Bio318)
This is a 4 credit non-lab courseTuesdays + Thursdays 12:00-1:40
In this course students deepen their knowledge of the ecology and apply these concepts to specific groups of organisms that live on land. Students discover the details of behavioral, population, community, and physiological ecology. Students become familiar with conceptual and mathematical models and their use in ecological studies, as well as evaluate studies reported in scientific literature
Animal Physiology Adjunct Faculty
Master’s degree or higher in Animal Physiology or biology related discipline, teaching experience preferred.
Animal Physiology (Bio325)
This is a 2 credit non-lab courseTuesdays 10:00-11:40
In this course students examine the physiology of animal species, and address essential anatomy and basic principles that underlie physiological processes. Students explore tissues, organs and organ systems of animals, with an emphasis on structure and function relationships. Physiological adaptations across animal species and species diversity are also included in class discussions.
Earth Science Adjunct Faculty
Master’s degree or higher in Earth Science, Geology, Meteorology, Oceanography or other related discipline, teaching experience preferred.
Earth Science (Sci130)
This is a 4 credit lab course Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8:00-9:40
This course focuses on fundamentals of earth science, which include geology, meteorology, oceanography and astronomy. In addition to developing basic comprehension of our physical environment, students study potential responses to hazards in the natural environment. Extensive use of laboratory activities provides active learning opportunities for student to apply the concepts and engage in scientific inquiry.
