FACULTY POSITION IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY

Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

The Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology at IUPUI (http://chem.iupui.edu/) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in analytical chemistry to begin August 1, 2017. The position is open to applicants from all areas of analytical chemistry, but candidates with research interest in mass spectrometry are particularly encouraged to apply.

The position will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, with tenure status to be determined based on prior experiences and qualifications. We specifically seek candidates whose research interest can support and expand the department’s efforts to complement campus-wide interdisciplinary research programs in the life and health sciences, including ongoing collaborative efforts with the IUPUI School of Science, the IU School of Medicine, and the Integrated Nanosystems Development Institute. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry or a related discipline along with relevant postdoctoral training. Candidates will be expected to establish an externally funded innovative and rigorous research program, and teach undergraduate analytical chemistry and graduate courses effectively. Applicants at the Associate Professor level must have a record of research excellence, a history of external funding, and evidence of successful student mentoring.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research plans and teaching philosophy, and the names and contact information for three references, in a single pdf file to analytch@iupui.edu. Evaluation of applications will begin on October 17, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled.

IUPUI is an EEO/AA employer with a strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity—we seek to attract a diverse applicant pool for this position, especially including women and members of minority groups.
