We are aggressively recruiting new faculty to our department including ongoing searches for at least 2 Tenure-Tenure Track Positions described below. The response has been very encouraging and we thank you for any assistance in identifying candidates. The searches will continue until filled despite a momentary – and potentially confusing – lapse in the appearance of our advertisement in C&EN (chemistryjobs.acs.org). The ads are current at msujobs.msstate.edu.
Our Department is in rapid building mode yet despite current faculty numbers, we graduate an average of 10 Ph.D. professionals each year. We invite you to visit our web site and reacquaint yourself with Mississippi State Chemistry (chemistry.msstate.edu).
We look forward to returning the favor.
