The Department consists of 15 full-time faculty (10 chemists, 3 chemical engineers, and 2 biomedical engineers). The department offers BS degrees in chemistry and chemical engineering, MS degrees in chemistry and biomedical engineering, and PhD degrees in chemistry and biomedical engineering through the PhD program in Engineering and Applied Science.

This position is for a faculty member qualified to any or multiple of the following courses: General Chemistry, Quantitative Analysis with lab, Instrumental Methods with lab, General Chemistry Laboratory, Organic Chemistry Laboratory, Solid-State Chemistry, and Biochemistry. Candidates with a PhD degree in any fields of chemistry or related areas will be considered. Candidates in the underrepresented groups of STEM fields are encouraged to apply. The candidates may participate in institutional and professional service, such as advising students, contributing to assessment activities, or assuming course coordination roles.
