The Department of Chemistry at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position as Assistant Professor, starting in the fall semester of 2018. We seek a creative physical chemist who will undertake an outstanding program of research leading to peer-reviewed scholarly publications and extramural funding for that research. Applicants will be expected to teach, advise, and mentor graduate and undergraduate students. Particular fields of interest are environmental or biophysical chemistry, but exceptional candidates from any area of physical chemistry will be considered. A Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience in chemistry or a related field are expected.

Our department has an active Ph.D. program and research faculty engaged in a range of interdisciplinary activities. UVM recently (spring 2017) completed the first phase of construction of a $104 million STEM complex, and the department occupies new teaching and research facilities in this complex. Candidates must apply online at www.uvmjobs.com. To receive full consideration, applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, proposed research plans, and contact information for three references who will be invited to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2017. Address questions to Giuseppe.Petrucci@uvm.edu.

The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal. The University of Vermont is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer.
