The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Boise State University is currently seeking to fill a number of teaching-track and tenure-track positions.  I am in charge of one of the search committees tasked with trying to find a physical chemist and an organic chemist to come and teach here at BSU beginning in August 2022.   Thus, I am reaching out to Chairs of Chemistry departments at regional institutions to see if they know of suitable recent Ph.D. graduates or postdocs from their programs that may be interested in this opportunity; or can pass this information on to their faculty who may have knowledge of individuals looking for positions such as these. Here is the brief job description:

Boise State University Dept. Chemistry & Biochemistry seeks to fill Two Non-tenure Track Teaching Faculty positions to begin in August 2022. These positions are eligible for promotion to the associate and full level. The primary teaching duties will be in either 1) Physical Chemistry & Physical Chemistry labs; or 2) Organic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry lab, and Advanced Synthesis.

In addition, my colleague Dr. Lisa Warner ( is directing the search committee for a tenure track Physical Chemist or Analytical Chemist, so I am using this opportunity to advertise that position as well. Here is the brief position description:
