The successful candidate will teach in the undergraduate and graduate programs in the Department of Chemistry. A Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related discipline, with a distinguished academic record, is required. Interested individuals should send the following application materials to the Chair of the Search Committee ([email protected]) in one electronic file (PDF format): Curriculum vitae, a statement of proposed research, a statement of teaching philosophy and interests at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the names of three references.
