The Chemistry Department at the University of Richmond seeks to fill a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in Biochemistry, beginning in August 2018. We are particularly interested in candidates specializing in biophysical or bioorganic chemistry, and/or who can contribute to our interdisciplinary science offerings. The individual we seek will be a highly effective teacher and will be expected to establish and maintain an active, externally funded research program involving undergraduates. A Ph.D. is required and post-doctoral training is strongly preferred. The University of Richmond is a highly selective, private, primarily undergraduate institution offering ACS-certified degrees. The Chemistry Department graduates more than 45 chemistry and BMB (biochemistry and molecular biology) majors each year and is staffed with faculty who are committed teachers and active research scientists. Our excellent support staff, instrumentation, and modern facilities are conducive to supporting a high level of teaching and research activity.

Applicants should visit our Careers Site (http://jobs.richmond.edu) to apply. Applicants will be asked to submit a cover letter, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, a statement describing their research agenda, copies of academic transcripts, and a current curriculum vita. Applicants will also be asked to submit electronically the names of three references who will receive an email asking them to submit their reference letter. At least one of the three letters of recommendation should address teaching effectiveness or potential. Review of applications will begin on September 25, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Richmond is a private, highly selective, predominantly liberal arts institution. The University is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success.
