Description:Founded in 1863, Saint Mary's is a residential campus nestled 20 miles east of San Francisco in the picturesque Moraga Valley. Based in the Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts traditions, Saint Mary's currently enrolls more than 4,000 students from diverse backgrounds in undergraduate and graduate programs. The De La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College.

As a comprehensive and independent institution, Saint Mary's offers undergraduate and graduate programs integrating liberal and professional education. Saint Mary's reputation for excellence, innovation, and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning, and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

The lab develops introductory chemistry lab skills, safety practices, and qualitative and quantitative laboratory skills, including laboratory techniques (e.g. use of pipets, burets, balances), practice in the treatment of experimental data, representation of precision and accuracy, graphical analysis of experimental data, and scientific inquiry through hypothesis-driven experimentation.

This lab meets in person, on campus on Tuesday from 9:15 - 1:15 am during the 2022 Spring term.

In addition to teaching, the instructor is expected to hold regular virtual office hours (a minimum of one hour per week) in order to provide students with support outside of the classroom.

Candidates must have an M.S. or Ph.D. in a relevant area of chemistry, a successful record of teaching experience in chemistry at the undergraduate level, and familiarity with online/hybrid instruction in order to prepare for contingencies.
