As part of WPI’s systems biology initiative, the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in chemical synthesis beginning in August 2019. Synthetic organic, synthetic inorganic, and/or biosynthetic chemists interested in biological problems are particularly encouraged to apply. Colleagues joining our research enterprise will benefit from an intimate, highly collaborative research environment with current strengths that include drug discovery, drug delivery, membrane biochemistry, and cell signaling. The successful applicant will develop a vigorous, externally funded, internationally highly regarded research program. A strong commitment to teaching in the undergraduate and graduate curricula is expected. Applicants for a senior position must have a strong record of high impact publications and funding.

WPI’s reputation as a rigorous and innovative university rests on the shoulders of its faculty. A highly selective, private STEM focussed university and one of the nation’s first, WPI believes that when great minds work together, great advances follow. At WPI the boundaries to multidisciplinary collaboration are low; faculty members, students, and other partners work together on the real-world projects and purposeful research that are hallmarks of the WPI experience. We are most proud of a recent No. 1 ranking for “faculty who best combine research and teaching.” (Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Ed, 2016). Located one hour west of Boston, the university’s campus is in Worcester, Massachusetts, a thriving 21st century college city recognized as a growing hub of scientific and technological innovation.
