Two-Year Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Lyon College invites applications for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry position beginning in August 2018, with a possibility of converting the position to tenure-track after two years. A Ph.D. with a specialization or expertise in inorganic chemistry is required.  Teaching responsibilities will include freshman-level chemistry as well as advanced inorganic chemistry. Opportunities may also arise to teach seminars and special topics courses in the candidate’s area of specialization. Involving undergraduate students in research is highly desirable. Additional responsibilities may include academic advising and service on college committees. Experience at a small, residential liberal arts college as a student or as a faculty member is desirable.  Absent that experience, an understanding of the difference between a small college and a university and the desire to be on the faculty of a small college are important. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

For full consideration, applications must be submitted by November 15, 2017.  To apply, send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and research interests along with the names of at least three current references and their contact information to Mr. Donald Taylor, Director of Human Resources, 2300 Highland Road, Batesville, AR 72501 or electronically to with “Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry” in the subject line.  Lyon College is a private, selective liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
