Employment Opportunities in Biology

Faculty / Staff Positions. The Biology Department has two Visiting Assistant Professor job openings at this time, both starting in September 2019: one in Genetics and another in Plant Biology. Information on these, and other opportunities to join the Gustavus community, may be found at the Gustavus Job Openings site.


Students seeking employment should e-mail their interests, academic and work background, and at least a rough idea of weekly times available for work to:

  • Ngawang Gonsar to work as a laboratory teaching assistant in the Core (BIO101-202)
  • Bethany Valentini to work in the Greenhouse 
  • Maureen Carlson to work in our other facilities (specimen and chemical preparation, animal care, etc.)
  • Joel Carlin to work as our departmental science journalist (managing content of departmental webpages, social media, etc.)

Students may also wish to consider volunteering as a means of gaining valuable experience and discovering more about biology as a vocation. Contact individual professors to see if you can volunteer in their research labs, classrooms, or systematics collections. You can also email Scott Moeller to volunteer with the Linneaus Arboretum.
