Title Tenure-track Assistant Professor Categories Academic Organization CSUDH/Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry Location Carson, California Website https://csucareers.calstate.edu/Detail.aspx?pid=72683# Job Information The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at California State University Dominguez Hills invites applications for a Tenure-track position at the rank of Academic Year Assistant Professor with the appointment starting in Fall 2019. At CSUDH we celebrate and respect diversity in all forms that includes every race, religion, gender, ethnicity, veterans, people with varied abilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. CSUDH is seeking applications from candidates who can demonstrate experience in teaching and working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and contribute to the University’s mission, vision, and core values. https://www.csudh.edu/president/strategic-planning/mission-vision-and-core-values/ Chemistry and Biochemistry The CSUDH Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has a strong commitment to teaching and research of undergraduate students education and excellent faculty dedicated to accomplishing this goal. The department offers four different degree programs: B.S. Chemistry, B.S. Biochemistry, B.A. Chemistry, B.A. Biochemistry. The B.S. in Chemistry program is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS). Department facilities include five large teaching laboratories, research laboratories, a dedicated instrumentation laboratory, a theoretical chemistry lab with high performance parallel computers and a student computer room. The instrumentation available in various laboratories include a 400 MHz JEOL NMR Spectometer with broadband probe, FT-IR and FT-IR microscope, UV-visible spectrophotometers, a fluomicroplate reader, a Isolera™ Prime- Automated Flash Purification, VersaSTAT 4 Potentiostat, an Agilent GC-mass spectrometer, an Agilent Liquid Chromatograph-Thermo LTQ Ion Trap (LC-MS) system, and an atomic absorption spectrometer. Mission The mission of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department is to provide the highest possible level of education in multiple fields of chemistry to our diverse student body. The Department strives to offer the finest quality of service to the University community. The Department also encourages all faculty scholarly activities that will result in better service to our students. The department mission is attuned with the spirit of the University mission. Our main goal is to offer the highest possible level of education in multiple fields of chemistry to our diverse student body. We pursue our main goal by two main avenues: First, by providing high quality programs for students who are interested in a career in chemistry or one that requires a strong chemistry background. We serve this group by offering a Bachelor of Science degree accredited by the American Chemical Society. The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is mainly designed for students who plan to enter graduate programs in chemistry or other closely related sciences. Second, we meet the needs of students who are interested in a terminal degree in chemistry in order to find a job or to enter into professional school. We offer two non-accredited majors to meet this goal: Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry. The Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry fulfills the need for those students interested in pursuing medical, dental, pharmacy, and optometry school. Therefore, a major in Chemistry, either as a B.A. or a B.S., prepares students for multiple career paths: graduate work in chemistry or biochemistry, teaching in secondary schools, and entry into professional school, industrial jobs, to mention a few. For more information see: https://www.csudh.edu/chemistry/ The Position The successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong externally-funded interdisciplinary research program in collaboration with the members in the department or other research institutions, and to contribute to high quality professional and undergraduate education.
