The Princeton Neuroscience Institute seeks a full-time lecturer to teach courses and labs during the 2022-23 academic year. The primary responsibility of the successful applicant will be to teach neuroscience laboratory courses for both undergraduate and graduate students. The objective of any undergraduate course is to teach the basic principles of neuroscience in hands-on experiments. The major objective of any graduate course is to introduce students to modern methods of experimental neuroscience, and the process of design and execution required to perform independent research. Courses also allow students to conduct original research projects so that they will gain an understanding of how, when, and why particular techniques and skills are used in a research setting.
The Lecturer will work with faculty to design and update courses where appropriate. They will be responsible for preparing and presenting lectures, laboratory design and setup, writing and grading examinations, meeting with students outside of class time, monitoring teaching assistants, and assigning grades.
