Department of Chemistry, Harvey Mudd College
Harvey Mudd College invites applications for a visiting faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning fall 2023. Candidates with expertise in any area of chemistry are encouraged to apply. The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of an extension for an additional year. The salary for this position will range from $80,000-$88,000 and will be set based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to internal equity, experience, education, specialty, and training. We seek candidates who have a significant interest in education and are dedicated to becoming an excellent undergraduate teacher. Teaching responsibilities will primarily include a team-taught general chemistry course and its associated laboratory, and/or courses in the candidate’s area of expertise. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to advise undergraduates in independent research, if desired. Modest funds and space to support the visitor’s research program are available.

Therefore, experience with or demonstrated ability to teach, mentor, and support students from historically underrepresented groups in STEM is among the criteria for appointment. Your written materials, including your cover letter and teaching statement, should address your interests, experiences and future plans for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
