Postdoctoral Faculty, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of San Diego, is a dynamic, student-centric department focused on the teacher-scholar model. As a department, students are engaged in the classroom and in the research lab. The department is nationally recognized as a leading Predominantly Undergraduate Institution (PUI). The department has hosted numerous post-doctoral research associates over the past 15 years, most of which have sought and obtained faculty positions at other PUI’s. These postdoctoral positions include a small course load, mentoring students in undergraduate research, and high-level research in chemistry.
The College of Arts and Sciences is at the heart of the University of San Diego. Our philosophy is built on the enduring values of the Catholic intellectual tradition, immersing students in the concepts of free inquiry, diversity and inclusion, ethical conduct and compassionate service. The College aims to establish an academic foundation for students to thrive and gain a comprehensive education, which spans the sciences, arts and social sciences. Through our exemplary liberal arts education and rigorous scholarship, we aspire to not only educate the mind but also develop the whole person.
