  • Defend the importance of genetics to society and the study of biology and explain this to non-specialists.
  • Manipulate Mendelian principles of heredity for both autosomal and sex-linked inheritance.
  • Apply rules of heredity to the eukaryotic cell cycle.  Relate meiotic crossing over and genetic linkage.
  • Show how complex genetic systems lead to modifications of the basic principles of Mendelian inheritance.
  • Summarize the basic principles of population and quantitative genetics and apply these principles to real biological systems.

Additional responsibilities for this position may include assisting individual students, some related administration, course evaluation, and supervision of Teaching Assistants.  This position reports to the Chair of the department.

Suitable applicants are invited to apply for all four positions currently being offered in this course.
