    Closing Date - Will remain open until filled.

    This position is located in Camrose, Alberta.

    The Department of Science at the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus invites applications for a term instructor position in Biology. This position involves responsibility for teaching a lecture section and two alternate week lab sections in the 2022 Winter term.

    The course is listed as AUBIO 338 Developmental Biology, and content is focused on the development of multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on the interactions between cells and their environment that determine cell survival, gene activation and deactivation, and how specific cell and tissue structures and functions are selected. Developmental processes common to plants and animals are identified. This course is a required course in the Integrated Biology major. Maximum enrollment for the course is 32 students (with maximum of 16 in each lab section).

    For the 2022 Winter semester, the lectures will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:15pm - 13:45pm, and lab sections will take place on Tuesdays from 2:15 pm – 5:15 pm, and they will cover an 11-week term (January 26th to April 14th, 2022). While students only have a lab every other week, the class is split into two lab sections, so the instructor will teach labs each week (repeated twice for each lab activity). A final examination will be conducted during the final examination period (April 21-27, 2022)
