The Chemistry Department invites applications for a tenure-track, biology-centered Assistant Professor position beginning as early as July 2023. Candidates with a background in organismal biology, physiology, medicine, and/or computational biology are encouraged to apply, however the search is open to all areas of biology. The successful applicant must be strongly committed to teaching at the undergraduate level and will teach fundamental biology, human physiology, and upper level biology courses on a regular, rotating basis.

The department has a wide range of resources which are shared among the department members for both teaching and research. Resources of potential interest include cold and warm rooms; multiple incubators and growth chambers; research grade light, confocal fluorescence, atomic force, and scanning electron microscopes; preparatory and analytical HPLC; multiple thermal cyclers; gel visualization systems; standard instrumentation for biomolecular production, purification, and analysis; and access to DoD High Performance Computers. In addition, the department boasts excellent chemical analysis facilities, including an X-ray diffractometer, high-field NMR, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer, and confocal Raman spectrometer, as well as multiple GC, MS, and AA instruments. Members of the Chemistry Department, and the Academy as a whole, value diversity in our students and in our ranks. We strive to create an open, respectful environment in which students feel free to express different ideas, opinions, and worldviews.
