The Department of Chemistry at the Colorado School of Mines (Mines) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. This is a nine–month (academic year) position, located on the main Mines campus, and will start in August 2024.
The successful applicant will be required to teach; 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 profession. 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.
Applicants should have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or a closely related field with a graduate or post-doctoral background preferably in theoretical physical chemistry, with demonstrated excellence in computational expertise from ab-initio to continuum methods.
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.
While the research area is flexible, preference will be given to qualified candidates proposing research programs related to materials design, modeling and simulation of biochemical reactions, or clean energy research. Candidates with a combined theoretical and experimental physical chemistry program will also be considered. Applicants whose proposed research area and experience complement existing research programs in the Department and Mines’ interdisciplinary degree programs are particularly encouraged to apply.
