About Us

Lecturer of Biology

The Biology Department at Lake Forest College seeks an adjunct faculty member to teach a lab-based Human Anatomy course (BIOL 208) during the spring semester of 2020.  This teaching assignment counts as two course preps with the expectation of providing at least 7 hours per week of combined classroom and laboratory teaching.  Although a PhD, MD, or other appropriate terminal degree is desirable, candidates having several years of graduate study also will be considered.  The course is scheduled to meet Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30-9:50 PM in our newly built science center. 

A highly selective liberal arts college located on Chicago’s North Shore, Lake Forest College enrolls approximately 1,600 students from more than 40 states and from more than 70 countries. Lake Forest is one of the most diverse small colleges in the Midwest with nearly 40% of our student body comprised of domestic minority and international students. The majority of our STEM pool is female and also includes a significant number of first generation and traditionally underrepresented students. At Lake Forest College, the quality of a faculty member’s teaching is the most important criterion for evaluation. The College also expects peer-reviewed publications and active participation in the College community. Lake Forest College embraces diversity and encourages applications from women, members of historically underrepresented groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.

Please send electronically a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and have one letter of recommendation sent electronically to Professor Karen Kirk, Department of Biology kirk@lakeforest.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
