Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for two organic chemistry positions beginning July 1, 2018. Apply to either or both positions at Interfolio via the links listed below.

The first position is a tenure-track appointment.  The rank will be Assistant Professor, but an appointment at the Associate level (without tenure) may be considered with appropriate qualifications.  The position requires a Ph.D. in chemistry and calls for teaching organic and general chemistry lecture and lab, as well as contributions to general education (Connections) and the possibility of upper level electives. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a productive research program that involves undergraduate students in experimental organic chemistry, broadly defined, and contribute to the College’s shared governance. F&M provides institutional support, including start-up funds, to support research programs.

Optional consideration for a supplemental appointment: The person selected for the tenure-track position may also, if desired, be considered for a supplemental appointment as a Franklin & Marshall High Impact Emerging Scholar (HIES).  These are scholars who possess outstanding promise for inspiring and supporting the educational development of underrepresented minority students in a higher educational setting such as F&M. HIES candidates demonstrate similarly high promise for positively impacting the campus’s organizational and academic culture to make it more inclusive of and responsive to underrepresented minority students. If the selected candidate meets these additional qualifications, in addition to those outlined above, they may be nominated by the department as an F&M HIES.  If selected, the person will receive a two-year appointment (additional to the tenure-track appointment) that begins as soon as they join the campus on the tenure-track.  The HIES program supports the acceleration of one's research trajectory with a significantly reduced teaching load for two years along with supportive mentoring to advance the scholar's research and professional development. Candidates interested in being considered for nomination should indicate their interest in their cover letter and highlight any previous work in this area.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, teaching statement, research statement, teaching evaluation forms, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Interested candidates should apply at Interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/45054. For full consideration applications should be received by October 10, 2017.

The second position is a visiting assistant professor. The position is renewable for up to three years on evidence of good teaching and continued administrative approval. The position requires a Ph.D. in chemistry to be completed before August 2018 and calls for teaching organic and general chemistry lecture and lab, as well as the possibility of an upper level elective. The visitor will be encouraged to engage students in research, especially during the summer. F&M provides institutional support for research programs that engage undergraduates.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, teaching statement, research statement, teaching evaluation forms, and three confidential letter of recommendation. Interested candidates should apply at Interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/45078. For full consideration applications should be received by January 15, 2018.

Pursuant to cultivating an inclusive college community, the search committee will holistically assess the qualifications of each applicant.  We will consider an individual’s record working with students and colleagues with diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.  We will also consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to academic success.
