The Director will take the lead in the development, oversight, and teaching of Organic laboratories, as well as teach other lecture and lab courses based on interest and departmental need. A competitive portfolio will reflect the candidate’s experience or interest in Organic Chemistry education, discovery-based learning, inclusive teaching and mentoring practices, and working with diverse populations.

The University of Richmond is a highly selective, private, primarily undergraduate institution with an undergraduate enrollment of about 3,000 students. The Chemistry Department consists of 20 full-time faculty and graduates more than 50 chemistry and BMB (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) majors each year. We offer ACS certified degrees and our lectures and labs class sizes are typically no more than 30 and 20 students, respectively. The University is ideally situated in the Richmond metropolitan area, which has a population of over 1.2 million people, a robust art, theater, and restaurant scene, and the extensive James River park system.

In addition, please include copies of academic transcripts and the names of three references who will receive an email asking them to submit their reference letters to the University's Human Resources department. Review of applications will commence January 5, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
