Job Details

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the University of Maryland, College Park invites applicants for an open-rank tenure-track faculty position, starting August 2022. Candidates with innovative research programs centered in synthetic organic chemistry or bioanalytical chemistry, who will synergize with current faculty in areas that include supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology, proteomics/metabolomics, structural biology and nanotechnology are particularly sought.  The criteria for selection will be proven excellence and/or potential for scientific impact through original research, scholarship, and teaching.

Successful candidates will be expected to develop or enhance vigorous externally funded research programs and have a demonstrated commitment to teaching and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including working with students and groups from diverse backgrounds. As members of a key department in the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty participate in major University and federally-funded Centers and Institutes, including the NanoCenter, the Institute for Bioscience & Biotechnology Research (IBBR), the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC), the Institute for Physical Science & Technology (IPST). Faculty and students enjoy close interactions and collaborations with nearby government labs that include NIH, NRL, FDA, NASA and NIST. The University of Maryland, College Park is the flagship campus of the University of Maryland System and is ideally situated in close proximity to Washington, D.

The University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology are seeking an outstanding individual to serve as Director of the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) with the vision of making IBBR a premier biotechnology research institute. A primary role of the new Director will be to lead and significantly expand a joint NIST/UM research effort that combines basic, measurement and translational research for the development, manufacturing and standardization of advanced therapeutics and supporting diagnostics. IBBR-( is a joint research institute, which brings together partner institutions including the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The research strengths of IBBR are in the areas of 1) structural biology 2) biomolecular engineering and biofabrication 3) host-pathogen interactions and 4) therapeutic design and development. IBBR leverages collective research strengths of the partnering institutions in medicine, biosciences, technology, quantitative sciences and engineering, to foster integrated, cross-disciplinary team approaches to scientific discovery and education, and to serve the expanding economic base of biosciences and technology in the state of Maryland and the nation. IBBR’s research programs are conducted in two Maryland locations, one in Shady Grove and the other in College Park.
