Penn State Berks:

Berks is a small college (student population 2,900) within the Penn
State system. Penn State Berks places student learning as its central
mission. The College is characterized by its commitment to pedagogies
and instructional technologies that actively engage students in their
education and that encourage them to take increasing responsibility for
learning. Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal
opportunity, and the diversity of its workforce.


The successful candidate will teach anatomy (BIOL 129), physiology (BIOL
141 & 142), and anatomy of movement for kinesiology majors (KINES 202).
Each of these courses has both a lecture and laboratory component. The
candidate is responsible for staffing additional sections of lecture and
laboratory for these courses as necessary. The candidate will also
oversee a cadaver laboratory that enrolls select upper-level students in
independent dissection. The successful candidate will be a team-player
willing to work together to ensure the highest quality education for
Berks’ students. Service to the college, the community, and the
profession is expected.


An advanced degree in a health-related field is required, although a
terminal degree is preferred, e.g., PhD in appropriate discipline, MD,
DC, DMD, VMD, DPT. A commitment to undergraduate teaching is expected.
Experience teaching anatomy and physiology is a plus as well as
experience with cadaver dissection. The candidate must support the
College’s mission of enhancing undergraduate learning through engagement
while encouraging individual growth, cultural awareness,
ethical-decision making, and civic responsibility. Enthusiasm for
learning and a willingness to continually develop as a teacher are
critical qualifications. Salary is competitive.
