  • Faculty Position: Lecturer of Anatomy & Physiology


    Lecturer of Anatomy & Physiology
    Ten-month fixed-term appointment (multi-year, renewable)

    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.
