Franklin College invites applications for a full-time position to teach General Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry and Instrumental Analysis beginning in August 2018.  The position is a one-year term with the option to renew for an additional year. We provide a strong, active, and tailored liberal arts education through small class sizes and intentional relationships between students and their faculty mentors. Located about 20 miles from downtown Indianapolis, we support purposeful and practical academic experiences in and out of the classroom that leverage this location as students pursue personal, intellectual and professional growth. Please see for more details.




The ideal candidate for this position will offer an engaging General Chemistry course, as well as courses in Analytical Chemistry and Instrumental Analysis for science majors. The opportunity exists for the new hire to develop an elective course of their choosing in their second year. Candidates who can demonstrate a dedication to teaching, the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the College’s continuing commitment to diversity, and a genuine interest in working with undergraduates in a small-college liberal arts setting will be given preference. PhD (or ABD) and college-level teaching experience are preferred.




The hire will join the department and the college at a time of exciting curricular change, and a renovated and expanded science building that highlights student research and collaboration.  The historically strong Chemistry program is committed to delivering fundamentals needed in the market today through increasingly immersive and hands-on methods of teaching and learning.  The college is embarking on a similar initiative campus-wide. 




Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position has been filled.  Applicants should submit a complete application (electronic submissions preferred) including letter of application, Curriculum Vita, transcripts, student course evaluations, and three current letters of recommendation with contact information to:
