The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) invites applications for the Natural Sciences Professoriate-Track Faculty Research Fellowship. The purpose of the fellowship is to support promising scholars who are committed to diversity in academia and prepare them for a possible tenure track appointment at UMBC. The Department welcomes applications from candidates with research and teaching interests in all areas of Chemistry or Biochemistry, and with diverse experiences, including candidates from industry, academia, or government laboratories. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the STEM professoriate.
The fellow will be appointed as a Professoriate-Track Research Fellow for a two-year term beginning July 1, 2018, with the ultimate goal of preparing candidates to be competitive for tenure-track academic faculty positions. The fellow will receive a starting stipend commensurate with experience, health benefits, $5,000 for conference travel and preparation of scholarly work, up to $5,000 in instrument services, up to $10,000 for supplies /consumables, lab space, office space with computer, library access, and other privileges at the university.
Eligibility: Candidates who will hold PhD degrees in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or related fields at the time of appointment are eligible to apply. Degrees must be conferred before the time of appointment. Candidates with PhD degrees, with or without postdoctoral experience, are also eligible to apply.
Application Instructions: Applications must be submitted at http://apply.interfolio.com/44601
