Candidates must have completed at least a master’s degree in chemistry, forensic science or a closely related discipline prior to the hire date. A PhD in chemistry, forensic science or a closely related discipline is highly preferred as is prior teaching experience in analytical, forensic, and/or physical chemistry at the college level.  However, all areas of chemistry specialization will be considered.
