Recruiting for TWO Teaching Professors

The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology seeks two non-tenure-track Teaching Professors to begin in the fall semester. Primary responsibilities involve teaching courses at the general, organic, physical and analytical chemistry course level, and to provide oversight of the advanced laboratory curriculum. Teach up to five courses for students in the life or physical sciences or engineering students in the day and evening programs at the graduate or undergraduate level depending on departmental need and enrollment. Plan and develop instructional programs and materials, e.g. manuals, protocols. Meet periodically with departmental chair and the director of undergraduate studies to evaluate curriculum. Advise and assist students regarding educational, vocational, and, as appropriate, personal concerns related to their expertise and experience. Meet with other faculty members to monitor student progress and assist students when necessary. Serve on various departmental and College of Science committees, sub-committees and task forces to formulate, evaluate and approve programs. The candidate will be responsible for departmental and College service and will contribute to faculty efforts to obtain external funding for program development.

Applicant must have PhD, or equivalent, in chemistry and at least 1-2 years of prior teaching experience. Rank will be determined at the time of hire based on experience. Candidates should have experience in, or be able to demonstrate a commitment to, working with diverse student populations and/or in a culturally diverse work and educational environment.
