The Department of Natural Sciences regularly relies on experienced and dedicated part-time professionals to teach the following courses in its curriculum. Instructors are compensated on a per course basis.
General Biology I
This course is an introduction of biological principles with an emphasis on sub-cellular structure, metabolism, reproduction, growth, inheritance, and adaptation. Includes one 2-hour lab per week.
This course is designed as an extrapolation into the basic structure, function, and ecology of invertebrates. It utilizes the knowledge gained from Organismal Biology to explore intricate mechanisms employed by invertebrates. In addition, potential evolutionary theories and mechanisms that may bring about diversity within populations are discussed. Weekly laboratories combined with a student invertebrate collection provide the student with firsthand experience of the invertebrates with which we live. Includes one 2-hour lab per week.
This course focuses on animals with backbones (vertebrates). Structure, function, and potential evolutionary connections are discussed throughout the semester. Laboratories focus primarily on anatomy and physiology. Includes one 2-hour lab per week.
Human Anatomy and Physiology I
This course is designed to acquaint the student with the structure and function of the human body. The topics covered are basic chemical principles related to biology, cell structure and function, homeostasis, the basic tissue types, the integumentary system, skeletal system (axial and appendicular, bone growth), muscular system (muscle tissue, sliding filament theory, muscle metabolism and muscle groups) and central nervous system (special senses, sensory-motor integration added).
- At least a master's level education in the discipline
- Commitment to undergraduate teaching and mentoring
- Commitment to the Christian faith and to the integration of faith and learning in the academic discipline

In an effort to find and employ the best qualified faculty, the department maintains an open and rolling application process designed to identify a group of the most highly qualified individuals who may be called upon to teach as the need arises. Individuals whose initial application materials indicate a potential fit with the department's needs and the University's mission will be invited for an interview with the department and, in some cases, a classroom teaching demonstration. Upon completion of this process, successful candidates will be informed of concrete teaching needs and timetables by the department chair. While applicants are welcome to submit materials at any time, hiring decisions are generally made in September and April for the following semester.
Application Materials should include:
- Adjunct Employment Application
- letter of interest
- curriculum vitae
- statement of Christian faith indicating fit with Malone University's mission
- names and contact information for three references
