Multiple Positions Available: One Fellow per course

Goucher College offers unpaid CTFP opportunities across a variety of courses in the sciences and 
beyond. Graduate student and postdoctoral applicants are welcomed. In their CTFP application, 
candidates should mention specific courses of interest to them. Commitment is for one semester. 

The courses listed below are ones whose instructors have expressed interest in working with a 
teaching fellow. It is possible that additional instructors would be open to the idea if they knew a 
candidate was interested in their course. For a full listing of courses, see http://catalog.goucher.edu/. 


The class meeting times shown below are for informational purposes only. The type of participation 
and time commitment by the teaching fellow are negotiable between the fellow and the instructor. 
Also, the mode of course delivery (in person, online synchronous, online asynchronous, HyFlex) is at 
the discretion of individual instructors during the pandemic.

Positions Available

Note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, courses for either Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 may occur entirely in-person, entirely online, or may begin in-person and then need to move online. Extensive support and direction will be given to fellows from the course coordinator for each of these scenarios, but fellows must be prepared to adjust to circumstances.

  • Several positions in the spring for BL126 Organismal Biology Lab (1 credit lab course)
  • 1 position in the spring for BL322 Synthetic Biology Lab (2 credit lab course)

Fellowship Details/Expectations

  • BL126: This is an individually taught lab course that supports and enhances the material taught in the co‐ requisite lecture, BL121, Organismal Biology. Topics include the diversity of organisms and comparative anatomy. Technical skill development includes microscopy, invertebrate and vertebrate dissections. Course syllabus, text, and PowerPoint slides will be provided and we expect instructors to adhere to these materials with minimal changes. Sections meet in the afternoons or evenings once a week for 1hr 50 min.
  • BL322: This is an individually taught lab course of up to 24 students that supports and enhances the material taught in the co-requisite lecture, BL322 Synthetic Biology. Topics include the structure of nucleic acids, DNA cloning, PCR, and sequencing technology, genome structure, and programmed genome rearrangement using a Cre-Lox system. Students work with bacterial and yeast cells. Course syllabus, text, and PowerPoint slides will be provided. The lab section meets on Thursdays from 1-4:50 pm.



Degree Requirements
Master's or PhD or degree required.

Preferred Skills and Experience
Scientific expertise that matches course content; strong interest in teaching undergraduates; willingness to respond to feedback and work collaboratively with multiple instructors.

Commitment Length
1 semesters (Spring semester runs 1/11/21‐5/6/21)

Payment
Yes, payment is available as an affiliate instructor. Loyola is required to pay instructors, so they can only accept applicants who are able to be paid.
