Located 36 miles east of Atlanta on Emory’s original campus in Oxford, Georgia, Oxford College invites applications for a visiting assistant professor position in Chemistry beginning August 2020, with possible renewal for a second year, depending on need.
The successful candidate will teach two lecture courses and their accompanying laboratories each semester, contributing to the first-year sequence of Emory’s new integrated chemistry curriculum. Chemistry 150 provides an introduction to atomic and molecular structure including conformation and stereochemistry. Chemistry 202 combines topics traditionally taught in general chemistry courses with organic chemistry topics with the goal of providing a basic understanding of kinetics and thermodynamics of chemical reactions and how these are related to the structure of the reactants and products and the pathways between them. The lecture and laboratory courses are taught alongside a cohort of faculty colleagues in Oxford’s state-of-the-art science facility designed to promote student-faculty collaboration, scholarship, and innovative teaching in STEM.
Required—A PhD in chemistry or a subdiscipline, completed by May 2020
Preferred—Candidates who have experience with engaging students in investigative laboratory exercises and high-impact pedagogies are particularly encouraged to apply. Previous experience teaching college-level chemistry courses is desirable.
Application Instructions: Applicants are required to submit a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, undergraduate and graduate transcripts (unofficial acceptable), and three letters of recommendation via Interfolio https://apply.interfolio.com/73891 . The cover letter should address the candidate’s qualifications for the position as well as their interest in working at a liberal arts college. Evaluation of candidates will begin March 6, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled. Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Annette Neuman (email@example.com).
