The Wabash College Chemistry Department invites applications for two Visiting Assistant Professor positions – one in the area of Organic Chemistry and the other in the area of Analytical Chemistry or a related field. Both are one-year positions beginning July 1, 2024. We anticipate a tenure-track opening in Analytical Chemistry in Fall 2025.

The teaching assignment of two lectures and two laboratory sections will be primarily in general chemistry, with other courses determined by area of specialization.
