The University has a robust mentorship program and multiple other support programs to help new faculty connect and succeed. 

The successful candidate will teach biochemistry, develop and teach biochemistry laboratory courses, and participate in teaching lower division chemistry courses for majors and non-majors. Preference will be given to candidates who can also teach organic chemistry and toxicology.
