The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is seeking to hire a tenure-track assistant professor in Organic Chemistry beginning September 2020. A Ph.D. in organic chemistry or a closely related field is required and postdoctoral research experience is expected.

Candidates should demonstrate the ability to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels and, guide an active scholarly research program involving both undergraduate and graduate students.  The focus of candidates’ research specialization is open to all areas of organic chemistry, but those with experience in materials or organometallic chemistry are especially encouraged to apply.  Successful candidates will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses in organic chemistry and may be asked to teach and/or develop other upper-level chemistry courses within their area of expertise.  The successful candidate is also expected to develop and maintain independent externally funded and sustainable research program and collaborate, as needed, with multi-disciplinary groups of faculty both within and outside the department.

The College of Science & Mathematics dedicates itself to excellence in research as well as in undergraduate and graduate education. The College promotes a student-centered approach to learning in a research-rich environment, both inside and outside of the classroom, is committed to providing students with outstanding degree programs in mathematics and basic and applied sciences, and to increasing the number of under-represented students choosing STEM fields of study. Our programs prepare students to function in a multi-cultural and economically interdependent world and to succeed in any industry they choose. The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry adheres to the mission of the College, and offers high-quality programs including a B.S. in Chemistry (ACS accredited), a B.A. in Chemistry, a B.S. in Biochemistry (ASBMB accredited), an M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences, and several accelerated dual degree programs (B.S./M.S., B.S./M.A., B.S./M.D., B.S./D.O.).  The department is developing a doctoral program in chemistry with the goal of implementation in Fall 2020.  The application must be submitted through our online application system as a single “.pdf” file containing curriculum vitae, detailed research plans, a statement of teaching philosophy, and copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts.

Candidates must arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded onto the online application site. Review of applications will begin immediately; all complete applications, including letters of recommendation, received by November 1, 2019, will receive full consideration.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in organic chemistry, or closely related discipline, is required. Postdoctoral research experience along with a record of publications in organic chemistry or related disciplines are expected. Teaching experience is preferred.
