The Department of Chemistry at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a full-time Lecturer, to start in the fall semester of 2018. We seek a creative, professional chemist with a passion for teaching and demonstrated effectiveness in communicating science in the classroom. Familiarity with new pedagogy and technology is desirable. Applicants will be expected to teach several large lecture classes in General Chemistry to first-year students and to develop smaller elective courses in a specific sub-area of chemistry. Candidates with backgrounds in environmental chemistry or biochemistry are of particular interest, but exceptional candidates in any area of chemistry will be considered. A Ph.D. in chemistry or a related field is expected. UVM recently (spring 2017) completed the first phase of construction of a $104 million STEM complex, and the department occupies new teaching and research facilities in this complex; the second phase of construction (summer 2019) will include new lecture halls and offices. Candidates must apply online at www.uvmjobs.com. To receive full consideration, applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references who will be invited to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on April 6, 2018. Address questions to Joel.Goldberg@uvm.edu. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community, and applicants are requested to include information in their cover letter about how they will further this goal.
