Haverford College seeks a tenure-track assistant professor in the area of inorganic chemistry, broadly defined. The College and Department are committed to building and supporting a diverse community of faculty, staff, and students. Hence, we encourage applications from individuals from underrepresented groups and who have experience with diverse student populations. A completed Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related field is required. At least one year (as of July 2024) of professional research experience beyond the Ph.D. is required; examples include but are not limited to academic postdoctoral research, work in industrial/government labs, and science education research. Successful applicants will be expected to pursue an active research program with undergraduate students focused on inorganic chemistry, contribute to all levels of the chemistry curriculum, and add new advanced courses in their area(s) of expertise. The courses the successful candidate would be able to teach include introductory chemistry, societal relevance of chemistry, junior-level integrative laboratories ("Superlab"), junior-level inorganic chemistry, and special topics courses in areas of specific expertise. Ability and interest in contributing to other College programs and interdisciplinary initiatives such as environmental studies, health studies, scientific computing, neuroscience, or biochemistry/biophysics (or other areas) will be viewed positively. Applications arriving after September 12, 2023 will not receive full consideration.
