Adjunct Opportunities at Pine Manor College
Posted: November 4, 2013

Pine Manor College has the following adjunct opportunities in their biology program for the Spring 2014 semester that starts on January 13, 2013. Anyone interested should contact:

Susan E. Bear, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Biology
Pine Manor College
(617) 731-7144

BI101 Principles of Biology, lecture and lab. This is our gateway course. Students will mostly be first year. We use Campbell’s Essential Biology as the text. The class is quite diverse in preparation. It provides basic foundational concepts with modest detail. We have scheduled two labs, as we think enrollment will warrant that. It would be possible for one person to teach the lecture and both labs, or a lecture and one lab. Alternatively, two people can team up for one to teach lecture, and the other to teach lab (and rotate those responsibilities). Lecture is MWF 8:30 – 9:40am.  Labs are Monday and Wednesday 12:10 – 3:40pm. I can discuss the course in detail for those interested. 
BI103 Cell Biology Lab.
 I will be teaching the Cell Biology lectures and am searching for an adjunct to teach the labs. This course was inaugurated last spring. Labs have been established but are evolving and I would welcome input. For at least two sessions, we partner with Addy Alt-Holland at the Dental School for cytoskeletal staining out at PMC and a trip downtown to read the slides on the fluorescent (and possibly confocal) scopes. The lab meets Monday 8:30 – 11:10am. Great opportunity for a person to be creative in the student labs.
BI360:  Pathophysiology. This is a 300 level course, lecture only. It has been taught over the years by graduate and medical students mentored by Laura Liscum and myself. This year the school is searching for an adjunct to teach the whole course. I can discuss the approach and content of this class with interested people. This class meets MW 3:50 – 5:30pm.

Postdoctoral Research in Situated Natural Language Understanding
Posted: July 30, 2013

The Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Laboratory at Tufts University under the direction of Professor Matthias Scheutz is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of "situated natural language understanding" for immediate start. The goal is to develop novel methods for integrating the different parts of the natural language processing chain (from speech recognition, to syntactic and semantic parsing, to pragmatic analysis and dialogue) in a way that fully utilizes the situatedness of robots. This includes making use of contextual information (such as perceptions, task and goal knowledge as well as mental models of interlocutors, in addition to discourse context) to constrain possible interpretations and overcome disfluencies and other infelicities of spontaneous speech.

We are looking for a highly motivated, energetic researcher who wants to leave a mark on the field by developing the next generation of robots capable of unprecedented natural language interactions. The position is for two years, renewable for another three years with full benefits (including health and dental insurance, flexible spending accounts, and voluntary retirement plan). Salary is competitive, commensurate with experience.


The ideal candidate is a team player with demonstrated research and system building experience in natural language understanding and robotics (although the robotic background is much less critical) who will lead algorithm and software development in situated natural language understanding and disseminate research results in top-rate venues, and also help with the supervision of graduate students.
For questions about this position, please contact Professor Matthias Scheutz at matthias.scheutz@tufts.edu.

Job opportunities at Pine Manor College
Posted: May 24, 2013

Pine Manor College is seeking an adjunct professor to teach their “Microbiology and Infectious Diseases” course for Fall 2013. This is a lecture/lab course. Lectures are schedule Wednesday to Friday at 8:30 – 10:00am and lab is Tuesday at 2:00 – 5:00pm. The course is well-established and the person can teach from a previously used text and run the labs previously taught, or bring some individual creativity to the design. During the summer, meetings will be held with the adjunct as much as needed to help establish the course and order all supplies. There are currently 11 students enrolled, but that may raise slightly, certainly not more than 14 students in the class. All will be bio majors, juniors or seniors. 

They are also in need of an adjunct professor to teach the lab section of the Anatomy and Physiology class. This lab meets on Thursday 2:00 – 5:00pm. The syllabus is established; the lab manual is chosen and all reagents and supplies would be ordered and in place. This is an established course and so the adjunct would not need to create novel lessons or labs.

Lab Instructors – Pine Manor College
Posted: December 18, 2012

Pine Manor College is looking for young scientists to volunteer to design and teach a lab to undergraduate students for a new introductory Cell Biology class. Ideally the the labs in the course would follow a more experimental model that would allow the scientists to teach the undergraduates about scientific research.

This is a challenge to creative young scientists to develop a "traveling" lab that is self-contained; labs are weekly, and each lab could be one 3 hour session, or perhaps continue to two sessions, if needed.  This would give young scientists experience in design and implementation of teaching labs for undergrads.

For more information, please see the announcement and/or contact Dr.Susan Bear at bearsusan@pmc.edu.
