Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry (Job Search Status: Currently Accepting Resumes)

The Department of Science in the School of Natural Science and Mathematics at Mount St. Mary's University invites outstanding teacher-scholars to apply for a tenure-track appointment in Analytical Chemistry starting in August 2014. The successful candidate should possess a Ph.D. in Chemistry and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service to the campus community. The applicant is expected to engage in peer-reviewed scholarship that encourages the involvement of undergraduates. Applicants from all chemistry-related disciplines, especially those with interdisciplinary experience, are encouraged to apply. The primary teaching responsibility will be Analytical Chemistry and Instrumental Analysis as well as a chemistry elective. Additionally, the faculty member will be expected to provide support to the General Chemistry sequence and the General Science program for non-majors as needed. Successful candidates will share our commitment to the dignity and solidarity of all persons and the value of intercultural understanding.

Located on 1,400 acres, near the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metro areas, the Mount is a comprehensive, nationally recognized Catholic university, where Faith, Discovery, Leadership, and Community describe our collective calling and promise. The University enrolls 2,300 students and has a 14:1 student to faculty ratio. We seek to build an inclusive faculty that can engage the interests of an increasingly diverse student population; we welcome applications from minority candidates.

Mount St. Mary's University, the second oldest Catholic university in America, seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic identity. Application materials should discuss how you might contribute to the University's Catholic liberal arts mission, how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. A complete application will include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, a statement of teaching philosophy, a description of intended research, and three letters of recommendation (at least two addressing teaching abilities). Applicant review will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled. Application materials should be sent to:
