The Department of Chemistry at Wake Forest University expects to fill a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level in organic chemistry, to start July 1, 2023. We seek faculty with a commitment to the teacher-scholar model and to enhancing the breadth, depth, and diversity of our chemistry programs. We strive for inclusivity and seek applicants with demonstrated success or interest in working with diverse groups. We especially encourage applications from those belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
We welcome candidates with research expertise in organic chemistry, broadly defined. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Chemistry or a related area. In addition to high-quality teaching, tenure-track faculty are expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, externally funded research program involving graduate and undergraduate students. The successful candidate will be able to teach organic chemistry lecture and lab courses at both introductory and advanced levels. Review of applications will begin on Oct. 1, 2022.
We are a Ph.D. granting department whose mission is to lead in undergraduate and graduate education and research ventures that extend beyond the traditional boundaries of chemistry. Our department is housed in two recently renovated, state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, Salem Hall and Wake Downtown. In addition to traditional chemistry degree programs, we support new interdisciplinary programs in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery, and Materials Chemistry. Outstanding opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaborations exist through various WFU Research Centers and Wake Forest School of Medicine. Wake Forest is a private collegiate university that balances the personal attention of a liberal arts education with the intellectual vitality and broad opportunities of a research university.
