Job Details

Lawrence University of Wisconsin, an undergraduate liberal arts college and conservatory of music located in Appleton, Wisconsin, invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Chemistry to begin September 1, 2023. Primary responsibilities include teaching courses in organic chemistry and introductory chemistry, assessing student work, advising and mentoring students, collaborating with colleagues on curriculum development, and other programmatic, departmental and institutional service. The teaching load is two courses (or one course and its two lab sections) per term for three ten-week terms a year. This includes regular participation in Lawrence’s signature First-Year Studies program, an interdisciplinary introduction to the liberal arts intended to help new students develop their skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking.

Candidates will lead an active independent undergraduate research program that connects scholarship with teaching. Laboratory space, stockroom staff support, and start-up funds are available for establishing an undergraduate research program in or related to organic chemistry. In their research statements, candidates are encouraged to discuss how their scholarship may be particularly suited to an undergraduate setting, and how their prior experience has informed and prepared them for a research program at Lawrence.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related field by the start date; ABD is acceptable for application and selection. To apply, submit the following at (1) a cover letter explaining your interest in Lawrence and describing ways you can help Lawrence become more inclusive, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) statements on teaching, research, and diversity (as a single PDF document), and (4) three letters of recommendation (two of which address the candidate’s ability to teach and mentor students). In their teaching statement, candidates are encouraged to address their commitment to fostering a truly engaged and supportive experience for a diverse community of learners. In their diversity statement, candidates should discuss their experience related to addressing issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism in an academic setting and ways that you would contribute to these efforts at Lawrence.

Applications will be evaluated starting October 1st, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled. Lawrence University is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff. We welcome applications from individuals who will help us create a more inclusive Lawrence by: (1) further diversifying the faculty; and/or (2) demonstrating experience with successful diversity-related initiatives, creative activity or research; and (3) demonstrating interest in developing inclusive pedagogy to address the needs of a diverse student body, particularly as these pedagogies relate to antiracism and decolonizing the curriculum.

Candidates are encouraged to read more about Lawrence at as well as and Colleges That Change Lives. Questions about the position may be directed to Stefan Debbert, Search Committee chair:


Lawrence University is a private, selective college of liberal arts and sciences with a conservatory of music. About a quarter of its 1400 students major in the natural sciences, and the student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1.
