The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is currently seeking a Full-Time Faculty, for a 9-month, tenure-track, Assistant Professor in the area of physical chemistry starting August 2019.
Duquesne’s Chemistry and Biochemistry Department combines world-class research with the intimacy and attention of a small liberal arts college. For students, this means unequaled access to a faculty renowned for ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research and scholarship, working on real-life problems. Our commitment to Duquesne’s Teacher-Scholar Model also means that our faculty brings their newly-minted knowledge straight from the lab to the graduate or undergraduate classroom and constantly strives to develop and disseminate fresh ways to bring new ideas and skills to our students. Our distinctive departmental culture and close partnership with Duquesne’s Center for Teaching Excellence makes us better teachers and helps our students polish their communication and teaching skills.
The successful candidate must have earned a Ph.D., and preferably have post-doctoral experience. Candidates with research interests that complement existing research on campus and who show exceptional promise in research and teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels are encouraged to apply.
