The position will be expected to provide undergraduate/graduate instruction across the breadth of cell and molecular biology. The successful candidate will help provide student research opportunities on the Navajo Nation and surrounding lands. Dine College faculty have access to diverse, ecologically rich, tribally controlled lands in northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and southeastern Utah, including desert riparian and aquatic zones. As such, the successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain strong positive relationships with the Dine in and beyond the college.
Basic and applied research can be conducted at Dine College research facilities, including molecular and chemical analysis facilities, agricultural facilities, and a new research building scheduled for completion in 2025. In addition, Tsaile Lake is adjacent to the campus. Grant projects tend to be collaborative among Dine College faculty, so collegiality is highly valued.
