The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University seeks applications to fill a tenure-track faculty position in the area of theoretical physical chemistry. This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s “Discovery Themes” initiative (Discovery.osu.edu), a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact. A theorist who can advance the fields of energy and sustainability, materials and manufacturing, drug design for infectious diseases, or data analytics will overlap with many discovery focus areas at Ohio State. The successful candidate may be at the junior level, but senior targets of opportunity will be considered. Increasing faculty diversity and overlap with Discovery Theme research areas will be important factors in selecting a successful candidate.
