Full time

The University of Miami is searching for a highly accomplished individual to lead the newly created Frost Institute of Chemistry and Molecular Science. The candidate will also direct the umbrella organization, the Frost Institutes for Science and Engineering, until the Institution determines that both organizations have grown and diverged sufficiently to warrant separate leadership. Candidates are expected to hold an earned Ph.D. degree in a relevant discipline and have a bold vision of the future of research in the molecular sciences. Candidates should have a distinguished record of research accomplishments, equivalent to what is expected for membership in a National Academy, and must have demonstrated leadership abilities.

The Frost Institute of Chemistry and Molecular Science (FICMS) is the result of a transformational $100M gift from Phillip and Patricia Frost that provides funding to create a cutting edge impactful research program facilitated by not only a series of new endowed faculty positions but also a new building for the institute. Support for graduate fellowships, instrumentation and associated infrastructure are also provided. FICMS will combine efforts from existing and new faculty members, primarily from the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering, as well as related disciplines in the Miller School of Medicine.

Nominations and inquiries can be directed to Prof. Angel E. Kaifer (akaifer@miami.edu). Applications, including a letter expressing interest in this position and describing qualifications and experience, a current curriculum vitae, and names of three potential references should be submitted to FICMS.Search@miami.edu.
