The Department of Chemistry is now hiring for faculty and research positions.
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at the University of North Dakota invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor to begin August 16, 2021, contingent upon available funding.
The successful candidate will be expected to establish a nationally recognized research program with significant external funding in the broad area of synthetic-biological chemical materials applications. Expectation also includes alignment with research goals of the UND Grand Challenge, “Addressing health challenges through basic, clinical and transitional discovery.”
Teaching responsibilities include graduate and undergraduate courses in organic chemistry. Interest in the development of online coursework as well as technical expertise in NMR are considered favorable. Candidates with research interests that complement those of current faculty are especially encouraged to apply.
All faculty are expected to contribute service within the department, college, university, and community. UND and the College of Arts & Sciences value diverse perspectives and seek applicants who are committed to helping students from underrepresented backgrounds succeed.
Postdoctoral Position in Analytical Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry is seeking a postdoctoral research associate in the field of chemical characterization using chromatographic/mass spectrometric methods. The initial appointment is for one year and is renewable for a second year, pending annual review of performance and continued availability of funding. The successful candidate can start January 1, 2021.
This appointment will include chemical characterization employing thermal desorption-pyrolysis (TD-Pyr) with evolved gas analysis (EGA) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to allow for comprehensive characterization of a range of matrices providing insights in several application areas. Further duties encompass maintenance of instruments and laboratory, supervision of graduate and undergraduate students, and writing up manuscripts and proposals.
