Full-time, academic year, tenure track position in Organic Chemistry or Biochemistry beginning September, 2016.
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY OR BIOCHEMISTRY - TENURE TRACK POSITION.
Teaching assignments will be in organic chemistry or biochemistry with substantial assignments in general chemistry for majors and non-majors. The successful candidate will be expected to play a role in pedagogy and curriculum development for our chemistry offerings. We encourage applications from candidates who plan to incorporate this curriculum activity into their research program. Successful candidates must be committed to high-quality undergraduate education and will be expected to develop and maintain an active undergraduate research program. Publishable research that engages undergraduates is expected. Salary and rank are commensurate with qualifications and experience. Appointment is anticipated at the assistant professor level, but appointment at an advanced level may be possible for a highly experienced candidate.
A Ph.D. in biochemistry, chemistry, or related discipline is required at the time of hiring. Area of research specialization is open but specializations in organic chemistry or biochemistry are preferred. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers B.S. degrees in both chemistry and biochemistry. The department also serves many technical programs in the University. Students may choose concentrations in Polymers and Coatings, Molecular Biology, or a focused Master's program in Polymers and Coatings Science. The department is committed to providing each student with a capstone experience through a faculty-facilitated senior project.
