The Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Davis, invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of Inorganic Chemistry.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry or a related field by Fall 2022. Successful candidates are expected to establish a nationally recognized well-funded research program and must demonstrate the potential to achieve exceptional scientific excellence. The candidate is expected to be firmly committed to excellence in teaching at graduate and undergraduate levels in inorganic and general chemistry.

Candidates from all fields of inorganic chemistry are welcome to apply. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, statement of contributions to diversity, concise research plan, and, at least, three letters of recommendation to:

This position will remain open until filled, but applications should be submitted for full consideration by Friday, October 14, 2022.

Candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference check on all first-choice candidates for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions. The reference check involves contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for assistant professors to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions will be subject to reference checks.
