The Department of Chemistry at High Point University invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor rank with a start date of January or August 2020. The first is for a candidate with expertise in biochemistry and the second will specialize in analytical / environmental chemistry with preferred expertise in mass spectrometry and chromatography. Teaching responsibilities for the biochemist will include introductory and specialty courses in biochemistry and chemical biology and the analytical/environmental chemist will be expected to teach foundation courses in analytical and/or organic as well as advanced courses in their discipline. Both positions are expected to teach introductory courses in chemistry and potentially general education courses for non-science majors. In addition, successful candidates are expected to develop an active research program involving undergraduates. The department supports B.S. degree programs in chemistry and biochemistry with a significant number of students preparing for careers in the health professions. Successful applicants will have access to startup and institutional research funds, laboratory, and office space in the newly completed $65M Wanek School of Natural Sciences. A Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry or closely-related field is required and postdoctoral experience is preferred. Apply online at https://highpoint.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/Highpoint-Faculty.  Applications should include a letter of application, CV, statements of teaching philosophy and research interests, and three letters of recommendation should be sent to Dr. Brian Augustine, Search Committee Chair, Drawer 19, High Point University, One University Parkway, High Point, NC, 27268 by email at baugusti@highpoint.edu.

Candidates who have earned the Ph.D. within the past five years should also provide undergraduate and graduate transcripts (copies of official transcripts are acceptable).  Review of applicants will begin after October 15, 2019.  High Point University is an equal opportunity employer.
