The Department of Science and Mathematics invites applications for a full-time, three-year appointment/term, with the possibility of moving to tenure-track, faculty position in Chemistry set to begin August 2019. The rank of this position is open, in that Instructors, Assistant or Associate Professors are encouraged to apply. Although Clarke University heavily prioritizes teaching in the liberal arts tradition, evidence of professional activity and service are expected. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a one-semester health-science focused course (General, Organic and Biochemistry), develop a course in their specialty and be able to teach General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry labs. Additionally, candidates with a demonstrated interest in, or professional experience with, fermentation science and/or brewing are preferred. We are especially interested in a chemist or biochemist with enthusiasm for developing partnerships with local breweries as a means to create research opportunities for undergraduates.
Clarke has well-established programs in Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry. We also serve health science students in the areas of Physical Therapy, Athletic Training and Nursing. Housed in the Marie Miske Center for Science Inquiry, the department holds a full suite of modern instrumentation for teaching and research: GC-MS, two HPLC’s, FT-IR/ATR, Fluorescence Spectrophotometer, 90 MHz NMR, refrigerated centrifuges and a Fluorescence Microscope. We have newly constructed Food Safe labs with an extensive array of instrumentation, food processing equipment and sensory booths.
A Ph.D. is preferred; however, candidates who are A.B.D. will also be considered. Proficiency with instrumentation is important.
