Applicants are expected to be committed to teaching undergraduates and establishing an active, externally funded research program that engages students. Teaching duties will include introductory chemistry courses and, as appropriate, upper level courses in biochemistry, or courses in physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, or materials chemistry.  A willingness to teach courses for nonscience majors is also valued.

Applicants should complete the online application form at https://careers.providence.edu and submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts (copies are acceptable for application purposes), a description of research plans, and a statement of their philosophy on teaching, mentoring, and managing research at a primarily undergraduate institution. Also required are three confidential letters of recommendation. Qualified applications received by October 25 will be guaranteed consideration.
