Position Description: The Department of Animal Sciences, Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Science is seeking a non-tenure track, calendar year Teaching Instructor or Assistant Teaching Professor. The candidate will be broadly trained in animal and veterinary biosciences. Responsibilities will include teaching courses in the Pre-veterinary Medicine/Research, Companion Animal Science, and Equine and Production Animal Science options. The candidate will be expected to develop and teach courses such as Physiology, Pathophysiology, Animal Genetics, and courses on Companion Health and Disease. Ability to provide experiential learning with animals is preferred. The opportunity to develop new courses in the candidate’s area of expertise also exists. The position will also assist with academic first-year, upper-class, and transfer advising for our large undergraduate program and with course assessment and other administrative duties.
The Department of Animal Sciences, with strong roots in the Land Grant tradition, has as its mission “to improve the health and well-being of animals, including humans, through integration of teaching, research, and outreach.” Animal Science is a popular undergraduate major at Rutgers with over 450 students enrolled in one of the four options: Pre-Veterinary Medicine/Research, Laboratory Animal Science, Equine and Production Animal Science, and Companion Animal Science. The curriculum provides students with the scientific knowledge, technical skills, and experience to be competitive for entrance into professional schools (veterinary, graduate, medical, etc.) or employment in animal science-related fields. Our graduates are highly regarded by professional schools and employers.
The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) is located on the Rutgers University George H. Cook campus in New Brunswick, NJ. New Brunswick is a city with theaters, museums, restaurants, nightlife, and culture and direct train and bus lines to Manhattan. In addition, our students have at their disposal animal, produce, and turfgrass farms; woods and trails; display and community gardens; and even a bamboo forest. SEBS is committed to the study of how human and environmental health can intersect to support a healthy and sustainable future.
Established in 1766, Rutgers University (then known as Queen's College) is the eighth oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and one of only nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution. The basis for what is today the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences was formed in 1864 from an effort led by Professor George H. Cook to designate Rutgers as New Jersey's land-grant college, two years after Congress passed the 1862 Morrill Act creating public, land-grant institutions across the nation. Throughout its long history, the school has been home to many firsts and historical innovations, with worldwide impacts. Today SEBS supports vibrant academic departments, research and outreach centers, and institutes addressing the scientific foundation of the pressing needs of the 21st century in the environment, climate, marine and coastal sciences, agriculture, nutrition, plant biology, landscape design, food systems, and more.
