The Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology at IUPUI (http://chem.iupui.edu/) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in bioanalytical chemistry and computational chemistry to begin August 1, 2015. The positions will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, with tenure status to be determined based on prior experience and qualifications. All applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry or a related discipline along with relevant post-doctoral experience. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to initiate and sustain an externally funded program of research, and be able to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants at the Associate Professor level must have a record of research excellence, a history of external funding, and evidence of effective student mentoring.
For the bioanalytical position, candidates working in all areas of the discipline will be considered, but some preference may be given to applicants working in the areas of separation techniques and/or metabolomics measurements.
For the computational chemistry position candidates involved in research at the interface with biology and medicine, or in drug discovery, are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will be expected to teach a course in the undergraduate chemistry program, and to develop a graduate course in an area of their choice. We especially seek applicants whose research interests 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 (on campus), and the Integrated Nanosystems Development Institute (http://indi.iupui.edu).
Applicants should submit a CV, statements of research plans and teaching philosophy, and the names and contact information for three references, as a single, merged pdf file to either firstname.lastname@example.org (bioanalytical position) or email@example.com (computational position). Review of applications will begin in late October 2014 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.
