Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry

The Williams College Chemistry Department invites applications for a two-year visiting assistant professor position beginning in July 2022 in any subspecialty. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service, and we welcome applications from members of traditionally underrepresented groups in the sciences. Enthusiasm for teaching, mentoring, and advising a diverse population of students is essential.

Williams College is a liberal arts institution with a long history of excellence in the sciences, and an equal emphasis on teaching and scholarship. The Chemistry Department, with 13 faculty members and graduating about 35-40 majors each year, has extensive resources and facilities for teaching and research. For more information about the department, job expectations, and hiring timeline see .


We seek applicants who can contribute to courses in the upper-level curriculum related to their subspecialty and courses for non-science majors. A common semester’s teaching load includes complete responsibility for one lecture and two laboratory sections. Preference will be given to candidates who are also interested in supervising experimental research projects with students. Laboratory space and modest funding will be available for research programs that engage Williams undergraduates. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree by September 2022, and postdoctoral experience is preferred.

Application Instructions

All applications should be submitted online through Interfolio at . Complete applications must include: a letter of application addressed to Professor Sarah Goh (Chair, Chemistry Department), a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching and mentoring philosophy, a description of research projects and plans for the training and development of undergraduate researchers, and three letters of recommendation. In the application, we ask candidates to speak specifically to promoting an inclusive community and to working effectively with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. Applications received by January 10, 2022, will receive full consideration.

All offers of employment are contingent upon the completion of a background check. Further information is available here: .
