St. Thomas Aquinas College invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Chemistry, to begin September 2023. A January 2023 start is also possible.
Situated in the School of STEM, this position will serve primarily our undergraduate programs in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Forensic Science and General Education. The successful candidate will teach General Chemistry I and II, Quantitative Chemical Analysis, and Instrumental Methods of Analysis. Additional courses must satisfy program needs but may be tailored to the candidate’s teaching interests and strengths.
A willingness to engage students in research or project-based learning is preferred. Experience with scientific reasoning courses and outcomes assessment for a General Education audience is a plus. Faculty duties include a 4:4 teaching load, student advisement, committee service, and curriculum development. The College prides itself on the high quality of the teaching of its faculty as well as on their scholarly contributions to their discipline; so successful candidates should address both areas in their application.
College teaching experience and a PhD in Chemistry, or similar field, from an accredited institution are required; however, an advanced ABD will be considered with evidence of dissertation status.
Application process: A cover letter addressing the applicant's credentials and experiences as they relate to the position; a statement of teaching philosophy; a statement of research interests; a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement; curriculum vitae; sample course outline; and three letters of recommendation, at least one of which addresses the applicant's teaching should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
