The successful applicant will be required to support teaching in the subject field of analytical chemistry; advise and mentor undergraduate and graduate students; develop an independent, externally funded research program; participate in all aspects of the department’s activities and serve the chemistry profession.
While the research area is flexible, preference will be given to qualified candidates that are able to complement existing research programs in the Department as well as across Mines’ interdisciplinary graduate/undergraduate programs - IGP programs . Chemistry Department faculty have the opportunity to mentor students in Geochemistry, Materials Science, Nuclear Science and Engineering, and Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering. Advanced instrumentation is accessible through the Mines shared instrumentation facility - SIF; departmental research equipment (e.g. NMR, ICP-MS) and instruments located in teaching laboratories.
Applicants should have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or a closely related field with a graduate or post-doctoral background preferably in experimental analytical, bioanalytical, or environmental chemistry.
- Assistant Professor candidates must demonstrate the potential for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.
- Associate Professor candidates must have an established and currently funded program with clear potential for continuance, and a proven track record of success in teaching, research, and service. In addition, a potential for national and international professional recognition must be evident.
Applicants whose proposed research area and experience complement existing research programs in the Department and across Mines’ interdisciplinary graduate/undergraduate programs (e.g. Materials Science and Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering) are particularly encouraged to apply as are applicants from groups underrepresented in the physical sciences. The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their strong commitment to research, teaching, and mentoring.
