Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Job description

Briar Cliff University of Iowa, an institution committed to higher education within a liberal arts and Catholic perspective, invites applications for a nine-month, tenure-track, assistant professor in Chemistry to start in the fall of 2021. The primary, and essential, teaching responsibility will be biochemistry and organic chemistry. Other teaching duties may include chemistry courses for non-majors, nursing students, or majors. Furthermore, there may be the opportunity to teach in the university’s general education curriculum. Additional duties will include undergraduate student advising, research, and the possibility of overseeing some of the department’s programs. Preferred candidates will have a Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry or Biochemistry, commitment to undergraduate teaching and research, and evidence of scholarship required.

Perched on a scenic hilltop in northwest Iowa, Briar Cliff University is a liberal arts institution offering baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs and is home to more than 1100 students. Since 1930, the University has educated students in the Franciscan tradition of service, caring, and openness to all. Grounded in faith and pursuit in higher learning, the liberal arts education from Briar Cliff shapes more than just students’ résumés – it shapes their character.

We invite applications for this position. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should provide a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, sample teaching evaluations, graduate transcripts (unofficial acceptable), a summary of research plans, and three letters of recommendation.
