The Department of Chemistry at Vassar College invites applications for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor position to teach Organic Chemistry beginning fall semester 2018. Vassar College is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and promoting an environment of equality, inclusion, and respect for difference. Candidates who can contribute to this goal through their teaching, research, advising, and other activities are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area. Individuals from groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding are particularly encouraged to apply.

Candidates for this position should have a PhD in chemistry or a related chemical field and a commitment to undergraduate education. The successful candidate should have experience in organic chemistry research or teaching, and the teaching load will be expected to include a year-long Organic Chemistry course and the associated laboratory course.  Opportunities to conduct research with undergraduate students may be available.

Candidates should submit a letter of application, a C.V., a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, a candidate diversity statement, graduate school transcript (an unofficial copy is acceptable for initial application), and two letters of recommendation. Additional information on the candidate diversity statement is found at https://deanofthefaculty.vassar.edu/positions/candidate-diversity-statement.html.
