Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or a closely related discipline. While prior experience in terms of teaching and/or postdoctoral research is highly beneficial, the search committee will consider any evidence that demonstrates a candidate’s potential for excellence in teaching and research in a liberal arts environment.

Successful candidates must be able to engage and support students from diverse backgrounds. Furthermore, the College is committed to increasing faculty diversity to reflect that of the student population; therefore, we especially invite applications from candidates of color, women, and other underrepresented groups.
