Description

The Hope College Chemistry Department (www.hope.edu/academic/chemistry) invites applications for one tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position, open to all areas of chemistry, to start in Fall 2020. Candidates must have a Ph.D. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. The Chemistry Department is a national leader in undergraduate research. The development of a strong, externally-funded research program involving undergraduate students is expected. Start-up funds will be provided. Teaching responsibilities will be split between classroom and laboratory courses in the candidate’s field of expertise and the introductory chemistry program.

About the Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry has long been one of the nation’s premier undergraduate chemistry programs. Despite the moderate size of Hope’s student body, the ACS and ASBMB-certified chemistry department includes 14 research active faculty and graduates an average of 45 chemistry majors per year. The Department offers BA and BS degrees, a biochemistry and molecular biology major (jointly with the Biology Department), and an interdisciplinary neuroscience major.

Undergraduate education through excellent classroom teaching with appropriate modern pedagogies integrated with authentic faculty scholarship with undergraduate student collaborators is a hallmark of our program.  Student-faculty collaborative research involves approximately 100 students per year, including 55 who perform research in the department each summer. The success of the research program is demonstrated by the publication of research results and by the accomplishments of our graduates. Members of the Department have published 140 peer reviewed papers since 2010, 96 of which incorporate over 298 student coauthors. Based on NSF records, 250 Hope graduates have received PhDs in chemistry since 1958, which ranks Hope in the top 1% of all 614 US liberal arts and undergraduate institutions. This production continues into the current decade, as an average of 10 students enter graduate school each year.  An average of 13 additional students enter medical or dental schools each year, representing an admissions rate of nearly 85%.  Student-faculty collaborative research is supported generously by Departmental and College funds, but the majority of support is obtained from external funding agencies. Chemistry Department faculty currently hold active grants worth over $1.4 million, acquired from the National Science Foundation, the Beckman Foundation, the American Chemical Society, Research Corp., and the Dreyfus Foundation, among others

The Chemistry Department is housed in the A. Paul Schaap Science Center, where each faculty member has a private office and an adjoining lab for research. A full time Director of Laboratories handles purchasing, maintains the chemical stockroom, and manages over 50 student employees within the department.  The Department has a broad range of modern research and teaching instrumentation.  A complete list can be found here.
QualificationsCandidates must have a Ph.D. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. Review of completed applications will begin September 16. A subset of candidates will be asked to be available for a video interview.
