Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University. We have an international reputation for excellence in research across a broad array of disciplines, including analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, materials and physical chemistry. Ph.D. graduates receive world-class training, participate in cutting-edge (and often interdisciplinary) research projects, and are employed at all levels of academia and industry around the globe. The faculty also enjoy an award-winning reputation for teaching excellence. Undergraduate students benefit both from access to this classroom expertise and from a long tradition of substantive undergraduate participation in research. The Department’s research efforts are supported by a state-of-the-art Analytical Resources Core that provides 24/7 student access to shared instrumentation.
TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITION IN CHEMISTRY
The Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University, located in Fort Collins, CO, seeks to hire at least one tenure-track faculty member. While exceptional candidates in all areas of chemistry are encouraged to apply, we are especially interested in two areas: experimental physical chemistry with teaching interests in inorganic chemistry, and analytical chemistry with teaching interests in bioanalytical chemistry.

Grad students, Andrew Bates and Skyler Markham, from Professor Debbie Crans’ group, went to the 2023 International Vanadium Symposium held in Lisbon, Portugal. Both Andrew and Skyler received Biological Inorganic Chemistry awards
Researchers at Colorado State University and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have developed an effective and flexible antimicrobial material that could be used to coat medical devices placed inside the body.
Researchers at Colorado State University have developed a new class of recyclable polymers that could replace common single-use plastics with a large environmental footprint like grocery bags.
The findings, published in Science Advances, show that wildfire smoke can attach to home surfaces like carpet, drapes or counters – extending the exposure for those inside and potentially causing health problems even after an initial cleaning activity by air purifiers. However, Professor Delphine Farmer said the research also shows that simple surface cleaning – like vacuuming, dusting or mopping – can reduce exposure and limit risk.
Researchers at Colorado State University are part of a collaborative study with Oxford University that has developed an ultra-mild and functional-group tolerant method to produce arynes.
