The Chemistry Department is part of Boston College’s vibrant and growing scientific research community, which includes the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society. This $300 million investment into the sciences includes a new 150,000 square foot science center with state-of-the-art clean room facilities.

Successful candidates will be expected to establish a rigorous, externally funded research program that contributes to or complements the Chemistry Department faculty.

Applicants should identify their principal area of research in the cover letter. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level must include the names of three references in the cover letter and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted via the online faculty application system.
