university with a 200-acre campus located along the scenic

expression of our Jesuit, Catholic mission and identity, Fairfield
embraces a liberal humanistic approach to education, encouraging
critical thinking, cultivating free and open inquiry, and fostering
ethical and religious values.
Fairfield University's College of Arts and Sciences is soliciting
applications from qualified candidates holding Master’s or Ph.D.
degrees in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or related STEM fields to teach
in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Courses taught by
adjuncts or visiting instructors are typically for students at the
beginning undergraduate level. Instructors are mainly needed to
teach sections of General Chemistry and General Chemistry
laboratories. Also of immediate interest are instructors who would
like to teach courses for non-science-majors, such as Chemistry of
Nutrition, Molecules of Life, etc. Classes will preferably be
taught during the day, but a few sections of lecture or laboratory
are offered in the evenings.
From time-to-time, upper division chemistry courses may be
available for adjuncts or visiting instructors with proper
qualifications and interests. Do not hesitate to contact us if you
have expertise in topics of interest to STEM students that are
related to chemistry and biochemistry.
A Master's degree or higher is required.
