About Us

Neuroscience Lecturer

The Neuroscience Program and the Biology Department seek a part-time lecturer to teach NEUR 301: Neuroscience: Neuron to Brain (lecture and two laboratory sections) in Spring 2019.  This course is a core offering in the Neuroscience major and an elective in the Biology major.

This course explores basic concepts in brain, mind, and behavior from a sub-organismal perspective. Current issues are examined within a broad integrative framework that begins with the cellular and molecular physiology of individual neurons. The course considers how molecules control the development of neuronal pathways and the networks that underlie sensory, integrative, and motor systems. In addition, it explores the molecular genetic basis of complex brain functions including learning, memory, affect, sleep, homeostasis, and ultimately, cognition. The accompanying laboratory provides students with hands-on experiences in the contemporary methods and experimental approaches of cellular and integrative neurophysiology.

A highly selective liberal arts college located on Chicago’s North Shore, Lake Forest College enrolls approximately 1,500 students from over 47 states and 78 countries.  At Lake Forest College, the quality of a faculty member’s teaching is the most important criterion for evaluation.

Lake Forest College embraces diversity and encourages applications from women and other members of historically underrepresented groups.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. is required, plus previous experience teaching undergraduates.  Applicants should electronically send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, transcripts, and up to two letters of recommendation to:

Dr. Matthew Kelley

Professor of Psychology

Chair, Neuroscience Program

Lake Forest College



Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
