Specifically, LC seeks a full-time Assistant Professor in Chemistry (or a related field such as biochemistry, biomedical sciences, et al.) to start Fall Semester 2023. The successful candidate will primarily teach a range of undergraduate chemistry-based courses to support our Life Science program and will also deliver non-major STEM courses. Courses may include introductory courses for non-majors to advanced courses in their area(s) of interest and expertise. All courses may be offered as in-person and/or online modalities; however, this position is based at and on the Putney, Vermont campus. An ability and willingness to develop a discovery research program that involves our undergraduate students is highly desirable.
