Teaching Postdoctoral Faculty Fellow of Organic Chemistry

Department: Chemistry

Position Type: Full Time

Summary:

William Paterson University seeks applications from outstanding candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellow of Organic Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry of the College of Science and Health. Applications from all areas of organic chemistry will be considered but research experience in areas such as organic synthesis, catalysis, bioorganic chemistry, green chemistry, bio-nanochemistry and materials chemistry is a plus. As a public university serving a highly-diverse student population, William Paterson University seeks to intentionally support the mentoring and development of faculty, particularly faculty of underrepresented backgrounds.

The Fellow will be appointed for two academic years in a non-tenure-track teaching position (NTTP) under New Jersey's statewide contract, with full benefits and competitive salaries. . Appointment to the second year will follow a mid-year review. Fellows teach a 3/3 load during the time of their appointments, with departmental research support. Following successful reappointment to a second year of the fellowship, and by mutual agreement between the department and the Fellow, the department may request conversion of the fellowship to a tenure-track line.

The University will provide the Fellow a structured program of focused mentorship, pedagogical support, and an introduction to university and professional service. The goals of the fellows program are (a) to support the career success of selected candidates, (b) to advance the University's commitment to building a diverse campus community, and (c) to expand the University's pool of highly qualified candidates for faculty positions.

Start date is fall 2023.
