Lincoln School, founded in 1884, is an independent K-12 Quaker girls’ school in Providence, Rhode Island. We are seeking applicants for a full-time Science Department faculty member beginning in August 2022. Applicants should have a strong life science background and would be asked to teach a combination of Middle School Science and Advanced Biology. The position will also have the potential for electives in future years, such as Anatomy or Science Research Design and Techniques. Teachers in the science department embrace collaborative and student-centered approaches to teaching and learning, and are committed to growing our program through innovative course development. Lincoln School values working with a diverse faculty and staff and seeks applications from individuals who share our commitment to educating girls to fearlessly embrace the opportunities and responsibilities of full citizenship in a complex world.

The ideal candidate will have at least three (3) years of teaching experience, a student-centered teaching approach, and the confidence and skills to meet the needs of a variety of learners. A commitment to an all-girls environment, and the desire to inspire and engage young women in science are essential. The successful candidate will be excited to work collaboratively with other department members, be an active member of the Science Department team, and be flexible in response to student and school needs. Contributions to school life beyond the classroom are expected, as well as the ability to embrace and forward the Quaker mission of Lincoln School.
