Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Biological and Inorganic Chemistry. 

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Utah invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks in the broadly defined areas of:

  1. Bioanalytical/Analytical Chemistry such as elecrochemistry, bioelecrochemistry, biocatalysis, and biosensing;
  2. Organic/Polymer Chemistry (including but not limited to innovative approaches to synthesis, design, recycling and upcycling of polymers);
  3. Inorganic/Materials Chemistry in areas such as materials design and/or automation that may leverage computational and data-driven techniques.

The Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their ability to develop a vigorous, internationally visible, and well-funded research program, and exemplify effective teaching and mentorship to both undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, our Department values candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and possess a strong commitment to inproving access to higher education. A Ph.D. is required and post doctoral experience is highly desirable. 

For priority consideration, application materials should be uploaded by September 15, 2023 in PDF format at: Applicants interested in applying at the Assistant Professor level should upload (1) and application letter; (2) CV; (3) a description of research interests; (4) a description of teaching interestes and mentorship; and (5) arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent on their behalf. In addition, applicants will be required to upload an anonymized statement of research interests that provides research direction, goals and expected outcomes while avoiding any information that can be used to glean the identity of the candidate. Those applying at the Associate or Full Professor levels should upload an application letter, CV, and research and teaching statements; letters of reference for the Associate/Full appointments will be requested after the interview. 

Initial review of applications will begin September 15, 2023 and will continue until the positions are filled. 

Benefits: The University of Utah offers an exceptional array of benefit plans such as medical, dental, vision, retirement, tuition reduction, wellness programs, employee assistance, and generous leave policies. In addition to traditional packages, it also provides a range of family-friendly and cultural benefits in order to attract, support and retain the employees who continue to make the University of Utah a premier research institution.

Submission of your information enters you for
each Scholarship or Award you are eligible for.
Deadline for applications is Feb. 15th

ACS Bridge Travel and Career/Professional Development Award

The award is open to undergraduate students interested in the chemical sciences and are from groups traditionally underrepresented in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Namely, underrepresented minorities include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans. The goal of this professional development award is to increase the number of URM students that gain access to doctoral programs in the chemical sciences. The professional development award will defray the cost of any online workshops, courses, virtual conferences, and/or events that will assist URM students gain access to doctoral programs in the chemical sciences. Each award will be for up to $1000 of eligible expenses based on the review of materials.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

We, the Department of Chemistry, welcome everyone of all backgrounds. Inclusion and diversity are essential elements to our teaching methods and scientific research. The more perspectives we bring to our department, the more impact and value we will contribute to our communities and society as a whole. We commit to fostering an open environment where we continue to listen to the needs of our students, staff, faculty, and greater scientific community. We endeavor to support our students as they continue forward without any prejudice.  We value all forms of diversity and acknowledged their advancement of science and society. 
At the University of Utah, there is simply no place for bias, discrimination, racism, bigotry, hate or violence. We condemn all such acts and words in the strongest possible terms.
