Job Details

The Stanford Chemistry Department invites applications for a Ph.D.-level Lecturer position to begin autumn 2022 to join a team of Lecturers in the Department. The candidate should have a strong background in biochemistry or organic chemistry. This position is a full-time, 9-month, fixed-term, full-benefit appointment. The initial appointment is for 2 years, with reappointment terms of 3 years.  The teaching duties vary quarterly between instructing independent laboratories to co-instructing in an integrated lecture/laboratory course with a faculty member. The department has moved toward active learning, thus the ideal candidate will also be involved in developing and evaluating new active learning materials. In addition to instruction, the candidate will be responsible for evolving laboratory exercises, mentoring course teaching assistants, advising students, and participating in Department committees, as appropriate. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy (1 page), and three letters of recommendation addressing their teaching and/or administrative abilities.

All materials must be submitted electronically to Academic Jobs Online:


Completed applications will be reviewed starting January 1, 2022.

Email inquiries and questions may be directed to Amy Rutherford (amyruth@stanford.edu).

The synthesis of teaching and research is fundamental to Stanford University. All faculty engage in scholarly research, most often in association with graduate students or advanced undergraduates. Stanford is noted for its openness to interdisciplinary research, not only within the schools and departments, but also in its nine independent laboratories, centers and institutes. Several national research centers are located on the campus, including the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Today, Stanford has 1,671 tenure-line faculty, senior fellows and center fellows at specified policy centers and institutes, and Medical Center line faculty. Fifty-six percent of the faculty have earned tenure. Faculty at Stanford are expected to be among the best teachers and researchers in their fields. There are 314 faculty members appointed to endowed chairs. Twenty-three Stanford faculty have won the Nobel Prize since the university's founding.
