The Department of Chemistry at the George Washington University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of Chemistry beginning as early as Fall 2018 in Analytical Chemistry. The search, which is pending final budgetary approval, is open to all areas of analytical chemistry, including those with application to separations with particular focus on biomolecules or sensors for use in energy/environmental needs or homeland security and that complement the existing strengths of the department. Assistant Professor candidates are expected to develop a highly active, funded research program. Candidates at the Associate Professor level are expected to demonstrate a substantial record of scholarly achievement and national reputation in the field of their specialty. The successful candidate is expected to advance the vision of the University and the Department as a leading global research University. The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate commitment to excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level.
In addition to offering B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry, our dynamic faculty of 17 has cooperative programs with the George Washington University Medical Center (The Cancer Institute [https://smhs.gwu.edu/katzencancer] and Neuroscience), Biological Sciences (The Institute for Proteomics Technology and Applications and Bioinformatics), and Engineering and Physics (an Institute for Materials Science and Institute for Nanotechnology). Furthermore, under the leadership of the Vice President for Research, the University has created several more prominent Research Institutes. In January 2015 the Department moved into a newly constructed 250,000 ft2 Science and Engineering Hall, containing a state-of-the-art imaging suite and nanofabrication/cleanroom facility (https://nic.gwu.edu). The imaging instrumentation includes new SEM, TEM, FIB-SEM and Confocal Microscopes. A number of prestigious research laboratories, such as the National Institutes of Health, Naval Research Laboratory, Children’s National Medical Center, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Food and Drug Administration, all in the area, also provide unique opportunities for cooperative research programs. The University is located in downtown Washington, D.C. within a few blocks of many important institutions.
