Atria University’s Life Sciences program aspires to train students in an integrative science program introducing modern biological sciences across the domains and disciplines that intersect with biology, and more broadly the science of life, in the 21st century.
The Life Sciences program is a distinctive interdisciplinary major combining basic sciences, computation, design, making, communication, and entrepreneurship to train technologists and scientists of the future.
General Role Description:
- Train students to have core technical expertise in life sciences and technologies besides a broad exposure to the scientific, technological, business, entrepreneurship, and human landscape of systems operational in the biological sciences today.
- Develop and teach courses for undergraduate students in one or more of molecular biology, biochemistry, genomics and systems biology coupled with foundational training in the natural sciences. While the specific subjects taught will depend upon your own training, we will value an openness to engaging with areas outside of your own specialization.
- Develop innovative curricula based on interdisciplinary and hands-on project-based learning, often reimagining these from the ground up.
