Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Biochemistry
The University of Delaware
Newark, Delaware

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in biochemistry. The successful candidate will have a PhD in biochemistry, chemistry, or related fields, and demonstrate excellence in teaching at all levels of biochemistry. We seek highly creative individuals whose research interests complement those of the Department. An emphasis on probing and exploiting chemical principles that engender biological complexity will be an asset.

Founded in 1743, the University of Delaware combines tradition and innovation, offering students a rich heritage along with the latest in instructional and research technology. Located in Newark, Delaware, within two hours of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., with a railroad station in town, the University is a Land Grant, Sea Grant, Space Grant, and Carnegie Research University (with very high research activity, a designation accorded to fewer than three percent of the degree-granting institutions in the U.S.), and with external funding exceeding $200 million. A state-assisted, privately governed institution, the University enrolls approximately 17,000 undergraduates and 4,000 graduate students. The University of Delaware has been recognized for the past five years by the Chronicle of Higher Education as one of America’s best universities to work for. Within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the successful candidate will benefit from excellent core laboratories and a vibrant and supportive intellectual environment.
