The Chemistry Department at Lebanon Valley College invites applicants with expertise in the area of Inorganic Chemistry, for the position of Assistant Professor of Chemistry, beginning in August 2024. Primary responsibilities are teaching sophomore-level inorganic lecture and laboratory courses and a senior-level advanced inorganic course, while also contributing to introductory lecture and laboratory courses.

The successful candidate will have access to department facilities and a dedicated laboratory space for student/faculty research.
