Overview

The Department of Chemistry at the College of the Holy Cross invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment to begin in August 2018. Teaching responsibilities will be in Biochemistry and in our laboratory-focused, inquiry-based General Chemistry sequence. It is also expected that the successful candidate will teach an elective course in their area of expertise that complements the current offerings in the department.

This position carries a 3-2 teaching load with a full-salary one-semester research leave prior to tenure review and generous sabbatical and fellowship leaves for tenured faculty. Tenure-track faculty are eligible for travel support and reimbursement of relocation costs within the College’s published policies. All full-time appointments offer competitive salaries and include full benefits.

Candidates must demonstrate commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching as well as scholarly achievement. Ph.D. required.

Please submit a cover letter describing research and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, a research plan including how undergraduates will be involved and estimated start-up needs and budget, statement on teaching, unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts (official transcripts will be required at time of appointment), and three confidential letters of recommendation.

In your cover letter, in addition to describing your research and teaching interests, please address the ways you might contribute to and further the College’s mission as a Jesuit, undergraduate liberal arts college (see http://www.holycross.edu/mission) and its core commitment to diversity and inclusion. Previous experience teaching, mentoring or advising diverse student populations is an asset. For more information, please visit http://holycross.edu/diversity.
