Job Details

The University of St. Thomas (UST), a private Catholic university committed to the liberal arts and the religious and intellectual tradition of Catholic higher education, invites applications from outstanding candidates for a full-time faculty position in organic/biochemistry. The start date for the position is August 2023 with an option for January 2023.

Applicants must provide a cover letter addressing qualifications for the position; curriculum vitae; philosophy of teaching; research proposal involving undergraduate students; and the names and contact information of three professional references. Applicants should also consult Ex Corde Ecclesiae and provide a response as outlined here: https://www.stthom.edu/Officesand-Services/Human-Resources/Index.aqf#FacultyEmployment. Review of applications will begin October 1 and continue until the position is filled.

General responsibilities for the position include teaching undergraduate lecture and laboratory courses in organic chemistry and biochemistry, developing a research program involving and suited for undergraduate student participation, and service activities as needed by the department and the university. A Ph.D. in chemistry or biochemistry; excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service; and a commitment to the university's mission are requirements for the position.

 

The University of St. Thomas is committed to hiring faculty who can help it not only fulfill its integrated mission - the formation of the whole person for flourishing in this life and the next - but also advance it in new ways. The University's Catholic identity is the center of this mission, a Catholicism expressed for our own age by the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Pope St. John Paul II's Ex Corde Ecclesiae. The University asks all candidates applying for this position to consider these documents to ensure their professional goals and practices can align with them. While applicants need not be Catholic, they must be able to support the University as it seeks to be faithful to and embody the riches of the Catholic intellectual tradition.
