Organisms and Evolution Laboratory is a Laboratory course designed for majors and others requiring a rigorous introductory treatment of the subject. This course is a systematic introduction to all forms of life, covering all three domains: Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya. To account for life’s unity and diversity, the guiding principle for the course is the concept of evolution. Through the study of the molecular evidence, morphology, physiology, development, and behavior of each type of organism, we provide a broad understanding of the evolutionary origins and phylogenetic relationships of all forms of life. Required for biology majors and prerequisite to ALL upper-division courses.
This laboratory will be taught in-person, on campus on Monday from 5:30 - 9:30 pm during the Spring 2022 term.
In addition to teaching, the instructor is expected to hold regular virtual office hours (a minimum of one hour per week) in order to provide students with support outside of the classroom.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant area of biology, a successful record of teaching experience in biology at the undergraduate level, and familiarity with online/hybrid instruction in order to prepare for contingencies.
