The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Washington University in St. Louis is looking for motivated senior graduate students or postdocs interested in gaining teaching experience to serve as Discussion Leaders in a course, Nucleic Acids and Protein Biosynthesis.
The course is broken up into four general topics including:
1.) DNA structure and protein-DNA interactions
2.) DNA Replication, Repair, and Recombination
3.) Transcription and its Regulation
4.) Co/Post-Transcriptional Processes (with a focus on splicing and translation)
As Discussion Leaders, graduate students and postdocs will be responsible for leading a groups of ~10 students in a discussion/critique of assigned literature and other active learning sessions approximately once a week over the semester (~10 sessions). This opportunity will satisfy the requirements for a teaching experience for those seeking a DBBS teaching certificate and/or the WU-CIRTL program.
Interested individuals can contact Eric Galburt, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Washington University in St. Louis, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
