Job Description

Dear Colleague:

I would like to bring your attention to an advertisement (attached and below) which will appear in August issues of Science and Chemical and Engineering News.  This announced search is to fill three or more tenure-track faculty positions. The specific area will be less important than the quality of the candidate.  I thank you for the widest possible circulation of this announcement.

Tenure Track Faculty Position
Georgia Institute of Technology
School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Atlanta, GA 30332-0400

THE GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, SCHOOL OF CHEMISTRY AND BIOCHEMISTRY seeks to fill one or more tenure-track faculty positions. Candidates from all areas will be considered, with opportunities for joint appointments in other departments of science and engineering to facilitate interdisciplinary research and scholarship. Exceptional candidates at all levels are encouraged to apply. Candidates for appointment at the assistant professor level should submit an application letter, curriculum vitae, summary of research plans, description of teaching interests and philosophy, and arrange for submission of three letters of reference. Candidates at advanced levels should submit an application letter, curriculum vitae, and a brief description of research plans (particularly if future plans differ significantly from past efforts). All materials and requests for information should be submitted electronically, as per the instructions found at:

The application deadline is October 1, 2016 with application review continuing until the positions are filled. Georgia Tech is an equal education/employment opportunity institution.

This recruitment will be used to fill 3-4 part-time (a maximum of 20 hours per week) Student Support Services positions for the Academic Success Center at Oregon State University (OSU).

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a highly successful program and an integral part of the Academic Success Center. SI offers peer-facilitated study groups for students in historically-challenging classes. SI is currently hiring leaders to support the CH 23X series.

SI Leaders attend all lectures for the supported courses and are responsible for planning and leading 6 small-group study tables per week. Each study table is scheduled for 50 minutes, and tables are held weeks 2-10 of the term. The SI Leaders plan for interactive study tables to support students as they practice challenging course material. Students who participate in SI study tables on a regular basis, on average, earn course grades which are 1/3 to 1/2 of a grade higher than students who do not participate. SI Leaders will participate in required weekly professional development meetings.

This position offers leadership and professional experience for students interested in supporting their peers’ academic success. Appointment is usually for the academic year, but SI Leaders’ ongoing employment in that year (and in subsequent years) is dependent upon positive and professional work performance as well as the SI program budget. At times, an increase or a reduction in the number of study tables led may occur due to student enrollment.
