The Department of Biology at Duke University seeks applicants for the position of Instructor B for the Gateway to Biology: Molecular Biology lab sections. This course introduces major concepts in biology through the lens of molecular biology. Topics include molecular mechanisms that comprise the Central Dogma and variants; DNA structure and function, replication, transcription, and translation; protein synthesis, folding, structure and function. Supporting topics related to the structure of cells like metabolism and energetics are included. The weekly laboratory includes a semester-long project in recombinant DNA techniques that is designed to bridge the gap between course concepts in molecular biology and applications in experimental science.

The primary duty of the Instructor B position is to teach lab sections during the fall and spring semesters. Additional requirements of the position include but are not limited to: attending course lectures on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings; participating in weekly Friday preparatory sessions and staff meetings; grading the written and oral assignments of students in the lab and lecture and meeting with students during Help Desk and occasional office hours outside of scheduled class time. Additionally, there will be administrative duties that will vary from week to week and may include preparing quiz and exam answer sheets, photocopying and distributing material for the labs, monitoring and recording student absences, scheduling make-up labs and responding to students regarding absences and missed work.

The Instructor B is expected to teach a total of five lab sections per academic year; this may consist of two lab sections in the fall and three lab sections in the spring (or vis versa depending upon class enrollment). The salary is $33,850 for the academic year (9 months) plus a full benefits package.

The successful candidate will have at least a Masters Degree in Biology or closely related discipline and some teaching experience.
