  • Biomechanics position

    We are particuarly interested in applicants with a biomechanics background
    for the following academic position.


    A tenure-track position is available at the Assistant or Associate
    Professor level for a Human Biologist. A Ph.D. is required.

    The Department of Biology contains 23 regular faculty, all but one a
    doctorate. The Department serves about 450 undergraduate majors in three
    major areas of interest: pre-professional studies, ecology/evolutionary
    biology, and general biology. About 1,300 students per year take the
    department's Biology for General Education course, and we offer several
    large service courses for health science students. About 20 students are
    currently enrolled in the department's MS program.

    The department's faculty are dedicated to quality teaching. Teaching
    responsibilities will include a two-semester course in human anatomy and
    physiology, a course in pathophysiology, pharmacology, or histology, and
    possibly another course in the candidate's area of interest. We are
    particularly interested in applicants with expertise in biomechanics,
    mammalian physiology, pathology, pharmacology or toxicology. Most of our
    faculty are actively engaged in research, and the candidate is expected to
    maintain an active research program involving BS and MS students. Funding
    sources of current faculty have included NSF, NIH, American Heart
    Association, National Park Service, USDA, EPA, and various state and local

    The Department of Biology is housed in Lewis Science Center, which contains
    over 100,000 sq-ft, including about 40,000 sq-ft that was recently
    renovated with NSF and university support to provide additional teaching
    and research space. Numerous federal grants have contributed to improving
    our equipment base for teaching and research. We recently completed a
    $50,000 renovation of our animal room facility, obtained a new Scanning
    Electron Microscope, and built a $120,000 lab for our new Experimental
    Neurobiology course. Proposals are pending for a confocal microscope, and
    for additional computers and instrumentation to further enrich teaching
    labs. Every office and most labs have ethernet and optical fiber access to
    mainframe, library, internet, www, etc. Multiple computer stations are
    employed in numerous courses.

    Conway is a prosperous city of 45,000 with two small private colleges in
    addition to The University of Central Arkansas. Living here means easy
    access to both a large urban center (Little Rock is 30 minutes away) and
    pristine wild areas such as the Buffalo National River, and the Ozark and
    Ouachita Mountains. Collaborations exist with staff at nearby institutions,
    including the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the National
    Center for Toxicological Research. The area affords opportunities for
    canoeing, fishing, and hunting, and is also rich in art, handicraft, and
    folk culture. For further information on the department, university, and
    area, visit our website:

    Our department strives to maintain the kind of rich collegial environment
    where students at all levels feel comfortable and welcome to explore freely
    through the various subdisciplines of modern biology. Collaboration and
    cooperation are the rule, and a supportive departmental atmosphere is the
    result. If you wish to join us, please submit your curriculum vita,
    statements of teaching philosophy and research plans, and the names of
    three references to: Dr. Paul Hamilton, Department of Biology, University
    of Central Arkansas, Conway, AR 72035. Application review will begin March
    12th. (Email: UCA is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
