The Chemistry Department at Hillsdale College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track assistant or associate professor position in analytical chemistry to begin in August 2024.
Hillsdale College, founded in 1844, is a selective, independent, four-year liberal arts college of 1,500 students. The college has a large endowment and the department receives significant financial support from the college. Hillsdale has traditionally upheld two concepts: academic excellence and institutional independence.
This position requires demonstrated excellence in teaching and a commitment to research at the undergraduate level. A Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry or a related field is required at the time of appointment. The candidate must also be an effective communicator with good interpersonal skills, having the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues and students from diverse backgrounds.
This position will involve teaching analytical chemistry, instrumental analysis, general chemistry, associated laboratory sections, and other courses depending on the candidate’s interests. The candidate is expected to continue a vibrant research program centered on the undergraduate, and mentor undergraduates through a final senior research thesis.
Hillsdale has a thriving, collegial, ACS-approved chemistry program with outstanding students and facilities. The department currently consists of eight full-time Ph.D. faculty and one Ph.D. staff member. Each year we graduate 20-30 majors in chemistry and biochemistry.
Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2023, and will continue until the position is filled. Ph.D. or A.B.D. in chemistry is required. Applicants should submit a (1) cover letter, (2) CV, (3) a brief description of teaching experience and philosophy, (4) a research proposal suitable for undergraduates, (5) undergraduate and graduate transcripts, (6) three letters of recommendation, and (7) a response to Hillsdale College’s Mission Statement (https://www.hillsdale.edu/about/mission/), addressing their interest and ability to teach in light of its commitments. All materials should be submitted via Interfolio.
