BIOCHEMISTRY / ORGANIC CHEMISTRY POSITION
The Chemistry Department at Hillsdale College invites applications for a full time, two-year sabbatical replacement position with potential for conversion to tenure-track. The position starts August 2013 and requires passionate commitment to teaching and research at the undergraduate level. Thriving, collegial ACS-approved department with outstanding facilities offers majors in chemistry and biochemistry and seeks an enthusiastic colleague to join in teaching expanding courses in biochemistry or organic chemistry. The applicant is also expected to teach an upper-level course in a related area of interest and may share in teaching either general chemistry or the liberal arts core chemistry course. Research area is open but must be suitable for undergraduate participation. Ph.D. required. Applications must be received by Jan. 7, 2013 and include cover letter, CV, teaching experience and philosophy, research proposal, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation.
Although the position is presently a two-year sabbatical replacement, we are growing and in need of the additional biochemistry/organic capabilities longer term. So the potential for conversion to tenure-track is based on an established need, and is primarily dependent on funding available toward the end of the two-year term.
Depending on background and expertise, the person filling this position would most likely teach some of the following courses, descriptions of which can be found on the chemistry web page: CHM 101, CHM 102, CHM 303, CHM 304, CHM 452, CHM 453, and/or SCI 101 (the non-majors chemistry course). A full-time teaching load would generally consist of two lecture sections with one or two lab sections, or three lecture sections with zero or one lab section. While outstanding teaching is fundamental, we are also looking for someone who enjoys doing research with undergraduate students and who wants to be part of a team dedicated to developing some of the best chemistry and biochemistry students anywhere.
