Director of Laboratories

Reports To: Dean

St. John’s College is looking for a Director of Laboratories for its Santa Fe campus. The Director, in conjunction with the faculty, oversees a three-year laboratory program in biology, chemistry and physics, taken by all undergraduates and centered on firsthand experimental work as well as on discussion of classic texts in the history of science and natural philosophy. The Laboratory program is central to the college’s educational mission, offering students opportunities to encounter the natural world directly and to approach science not as an edifice of facts but through the living questions it poses, and seeking to instill in them a sense of inquiry and wonder. We are looking for someone with skill and experience managing a laboratory (including budgeting, purchasing, project management, safety, and supervisory responsibilities), who will also be a partner for students and faculty in the study of the natural sciences as an intellectual adventure. The Director should have an abiding interest in teaching, learning, and shared inquiry, as well as technical and management skills.

The primary tasks of the Director are to set up the experimental equipment and procedures for classes; to ensure the safety of students and faculty; to support and meet weekly with all faculty teaching in the laboratory program; and to train and supervise a group of laboratory assistants chosen from the student body. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in hands-on work: developing and refining experiments, maintaining and tinkering with equipment, and teaching experimental technique. The Director needs to be capable (or quickly become capable) in a wide range of laboratory work in biology (including pure-culture microbiology), chemistry, and physics (including dynamics, atomic physics, and basic quantum mechanics).

The Director of Laboratories at St. John’s plays a central role in the life of a unique and vibrant intellectual institution at an exciting moment in its history. The college recently announced a $300 million capital campaign that has allowed it to reduce tuition, and was recently featured in the New York Times for the distinctiveness of its Great Books curriculum. The Santa Fe campus is in a gorgeous geographical setting, connecting to more than 400 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails accessible from campus, and thousands of square miles of nearby mountain wilderness.

To apply submit a resume, cover letter and list of professional references to santafe.jobs(at)sjc.edu. Application materials will be accepted until March 1, 2019 at which point interviews will begin. Application materials submitted after March 1 will still be accepted but may not be reviewed. The desired start date for the position is late April or early May.
