Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry or a related field. Experience in experimental organic chemistry and related analytical techniques is preferred. While prior experience in terms of teaching and/or postdoctoral research is beneficial, the search committee will consider any evidence that demonstrates a candidate’s potential for excellence in teaching and research in a liberal arts environment.

The College has been designated a Minority and Hispanic-Serving Institution; many Saint Mary’s students are first-generation-to-college. Successful candidates must be able to engage and support students of color, women, and other underrepresented groups, and will be interested in participating in initiatives that aim to increase inclusivity. The College is committed to increasing faculty diversity to reflect that of the student population; therefore, we especially invite applications from candidates of color, women, and other underrepresented groups.
