The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry invites applications to fill two (2) tenure-track or tenured positions at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor to begin August 2019. We seek outstanding teacher/scholars dedicated to excellence in the chemical and biochemical sciences. The department is an American Chemical Society (ACS) approved program, which has a strong, proven reputation for educating and training women of African-descent to excel in STEM fields.
