    Posted: 08/16/2023

    Rhode Island College invites applicants for two positions of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor-Biotechnologist (Cellular/Molecular/Biochemical). These are full-time, academic year, continuing tenure-track positions.

    Rhode Island College Biology Department invites candidates with expertise in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, or other related fields applicable to the Biotechnology sector to apply for two full-time, tenure-track positions. The State of Rhode Island is seeking to develop a biotechnology sector in the Providence area and has invested considerable resources toward that goal. Rhode Island College is ideally situated and has been tasked to develop programs that would produce a technologically skilled workforce.

    We seek qualified applicants who are innovative and creative teacher-scholars with demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring. The position also offers exciting opportunities for faculty to assume leadership roles in the growth and development of the new state-funded interdisciplinary Biotechnology program. Successful applicants will teach foundational and advanced courses for both Biology and Biotechnology majors and are expected to establish a research program which incorporates primarily undergraduate students.

    Rhode Island College is a mid-sized institution of about 6400 students located in a suburban setting in Providence. We serve and celebrate a diverse student population in which over 40% of the undergraduates are students of color and over 45% are the first in their family to attend college. The College boasts an engaged faculty community, and a proud tradition of shared governance. Recently, RIC was federally designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). As a small state in New England, Rhode Island has much to offer, with beaches, wooded areas, and the cultural and academic resources found in Providence and nearby Boston and New York.
