The Department of Chemistry at Brandeis University is seeking a creative individual at the assistant professor level for a tenure-track faculty position in physical (especially theoretical/computational) chemistry, materials chemistry, or chemical biology.  Exceptional senior candidates will also be considered at the appropriate rank.  The successful applicant is expected to establish a vigorous externally funded research program and be an enthusiastic teacher at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Department of Chemistry is part of a vibrant and interactive scientific community.  A research-intensive liberal arts university, Brandeis fosters highly collaborative science both within and between departments and is currently conducting multiple searches that will strengthen cross-disciplinary studies across the sciences.  The suburban campus in Waltham, MA is just 20 minutes from the bustling academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge. For information about the department, visit http://www.brandeis.edu/departments/chemistry/.

Applicants should upload their CV including a list of publications, a description of their research plans, and a statement of teaching experience and philosophy to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9746.  Unless tenured, applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted to Academic Jobs Online.  Inquiries may be sent to Professors Klaus Schmidt-Rohr (srohr@brandeis.edu) or Bing Xu (bxu@brandeis.edu), co-chairs of the search committee.  First consideration will be given to applications received by November 15, 2017.

Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.  Diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to Brandeis’ primary mission of providing a quality education.  The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their creative endeavors, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society.
