We seek an individual who will be able to teach introductory cell and molecular biology, genetics, human genetics, and graduate level courses in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or computational modeling. Applicants should convey how they would involve undergraduate and graduate (M.S.) students in a vigorous research program and how they would provide effective teaching and mentoring to students of diverse backgrounds.
