I thought I would break up the typical discussions messages with a
posting of faculty positions. If you know of anyone who might be
interested in one of the positons described below, please inform them.

The Biolgy Department at Calvin College has been granted two
positions, one a tenure track and the other a term position. Here
is the posting language of the two positions for your information.

The Biology Department seeks outstanding candidates to fill two
teaching positions for the 97-98 academic year. One position is a
regular, tenure track position (initial term of appointment is for 3
years) and the second is a one-year (possibly two-year) term position.
For the tenure-track position the department is seeking qualified
candidates with broad training in plant ecology, field botany, and
environmental science with a strong interest in wetlands ecology.
Candidates for the term position should have experience in one of the
following areas; cell/molecular biology, genetics, physiology and/or
human biology.

The successful candidate must affirm the goals and philosophy of
education of the college which reflect Calvin College as a Christian
Liberal Arts College in the Reformed tradition. Interested persons
