Position Details
The Department of Biology and the Program in Neuroscience and Behavior at Wesleyan University invite applications for a full-time Visiting Assistant Professor position in Neuroscience and Behavior.
The initial appointment is for one year, and is renewable for a second year based on performance. The successful candidate will teach four undergraduate courses each year. In addition, service to the department and program will include advising non-majors and undergraduate majors and serving on graduate qualifier exam committees and MA thesis committees in Biology and in the Neuroscience and Behavior program.
Wesleyan University is a private liberal arts university (founded in 1831) in Connecticut with PhD-granting graduate programs in the natural sciences and is ranked number #17 in the 2020 edition of Best Colleges in America. We are broadly interested in biology-based neuroscience courses related to the topics of neural systems and behavior, comparative animal behavior, neuroethology, developmental neurobiology, sensory systems (vision, olfactory, audition, somatosensation), motor systems, learning and memory, or lab courses (neurophysiology, neural cell biology/tissue culture, or animal behavior) to complement our other course offerings. 
Research in the Biological Sciences and the interdisciplinary program in Neuroscience and Behavior includes diverse fields of integrative biology: ecology and evolution, cell biology, developmental biology, cellular neurophysiology, neural stem cells, neurobiology of disease, neuropharmacology, alcohol and drug addiction, motivation and reward, and sensation and perception.
Wesleyan University has a highly interactive biology and neuroscience research community that encourages collaborations. A laboratory research program is not expected, but adequate laboratory facilities are available should the applicant wish to conduct research with undergraduates.
