About Vassar College

Vassar is a highly selective, coeducational liberal arts college of about 2400 undergraduates (no graduate students) located in the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley seventy-five miles north of New York City. The city of Poughkeepsie benefits from rich cultural diversity and from convenient commuter rail access to New York City.

Vassar College is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and promoting an environment of equality, inclusion, and respect for difference. Candidates who can contribute to this goal through their teaching, research, advising, and other activities are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area. Individuals from groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding are particularly encouraged to apply.

Position Summary and Responsibilities
The candidate should have a PhD with post-doctoral experience and a commitment to undergraduate education. The successful candidate will be expected to teach Biochemistry and Introductory Chemistry, and to develop a vigorous undergraduate research program in a field of biochemistry. Opportunities to teach in interdisciplinary programs also exist. Teaching load in the first year is four courses; after that it is four courses per year plus research or other intensively mentored work with students.

Vassar faculty are committed teacher/scholars who bring research and creative discovery to life for students in classrooms, labs, and studios and in individually mentored projects. They teach broadly in the curricula of their departments, advise students, and serve on college-wide and departmental committees. The College maintains a generous leave policy, provides strong support for research, and encourages multidisciplinary approaches to teaching.
