I hope your Fall semester if going well under the circumstances. I am writing to ask for your help in identifying qualified candidates for an Organic Chemistry faculty position at Idaho State University. We are currently looking to fill a tenure-track assistant professor position for Fall 2021. A potential candidate can obtain application information by visiting
isu.edu/chem or isu.edu/hr.
It is an exciting time to join the Department of Chemistry at Idaho State University, which has been enjoying steady improvement in almost every aspect of its operations. The Department is well equipped with modern experimental and analytical instrumentation, including a brand new 400 MHz NMR spectrometer we are looking forward to installing later this fall. We are an ACS-accredited department with 12 full-time faculty and 6 staff members who are dedicated to quality undergraduate education and research. The department also offers a unique BS/MS program as well as a standard MS degree. We are located in a modern chemistry building with separate spacious research laboratories for each faculty member. There are collaboration opportunities internally with colleagues in Biology and Pharmacy or externally with scientists at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Center for Advances Energy Studies (CAES).
The department maintains a very collegial and collaborative culture among faculty, staff, and students, and our students overwhelmingly find the department one of the most inviting places on campus. Finally, we are located in southeastern Idaho with ample opportunities for outdoor activities where a new faculty member can sustain a healthy worklife
Thank you very much for your assistance.
