Loyola University Chicago ( LUC ), College of Arts and Sciences, Interdisciplinary Forensic Science Program invites applications for an appointment as Lecturer of Forensic Science for academic year 2022-2023. Loyola’s Forensic Science faculty members are dedicated to quality undergraduate teaching and a student-centered approach to education. By being engaged in an active research program and service projects, faculty members contribute to the advancement of the field and bring their insights back into the classroom. The program currently serves 213 students with some 20 BS graduates per year. For more information about the Forensic Science Program, please visit our website at www.luc.edu/forensicscience.

Located on Chicago’s vibrantly multicultural North Side, LUC is committed to creating an inclusive, responsive community of faculty, students, and staff. As an urban-based department dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from systemically excluded and under-served populations, we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. Thus, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds, especially those traditionally underrepresented in forensic science. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose teaching and mentoring experiences include an explicit commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This position requires appropriate professional experience and education in one of two fields: forensic chemistry or forensic biology. The successful candidate will be required to teach forensic science courses in a nationally accredited program (Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission, FEPAC, fepac-edu.org) and should be familiar with the standards set forth in this accreditation. Excellent organizational and communication skills are desirable.

Teaching responsibilities shall include a 4-4 teaching load. For the chemistry department, courses will be taught in Drug Chemistry, Forensic Toxicology, Physical-Organic Chemistry, and Quantitative Chemical Analysis. For the biology department, courses will be taught in Forensic Biology and Molecular Biology ( DNA ). Additional coursework may be required in either the chemistry/biochemistry or biology departments to complete a full-time teaching load. Qualifications
The candidate will have an earned doctorate in chemistry, toxicology, biology, or biochemistry and have at least three years relevant experience as a forensic science practitioner in an operational forensic science laboratory setting; or an earned doctorate in an appropriate discipline, and three years of experience as an academic forensic scientist that includes appropriate educational, research, and service contributions to forensic science. Candidates for the position must clearly demonstrate the potential for excellence in teaching and have a record of (or clear potential for) student mentorship. The candidate should be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic Education. Physical Demands None Working Conditions None Minimum Education and/or Work Experience
