Position announcement at Carleton College
The Chemistry Department at Carleton College seeks applicants for two Visiting Assistant Professor positions for the 2022-23 academic year. These are full-time, one-year positions with the possibility of renewal for a second year and support for undergraduate summer research students. We seek chemists who are strongly committed to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts environment. We believe that these positions are an excellent launchpad for a career at a primarily undergraduate institution with an emphasis on excellence in teaching and research. Each position will primarily involve teaching either Organic or Introductory Chemistry, with the possibility of an upper-level elective course, depending on the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. A completed Ph.D. in chemistry is preferred, but applicants who are within one year of Ph.D. completion will be considered.
Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college with a student body of approximately 2,000. Located in the thriving two-college town of Northfield, Minnesota, it is 45 miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, in easy reach of a vibrant metropolitan area that is home to three million people and rich cultural resources. The normal teaching load is one lecture and two laboratory sections per term, three terms per year. We are particularly interested in candidates committed to teaching a diverse student body.
To apply, complete the online application at careers.carleton.edu, which consists of a cover letter, CV, a statement about teaching in an undergraduate liberal arts environment and how you would contribute to a college community that embraces a diversity of people and perspectives as one of its core values, and undergraduate and graduate transcripts. Include contact information for three letters of reference to be submitted electronically. Primary consideration will be given to applicants who have all materials submitted by February 18, 2022.
Carleton College is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. We are committed to developing our faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and American society. Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age in providing employment or access to its educational facilities and activities.
Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
