Assistant Professor - Biochemistry
College of Arts and Sciences
Adelphi University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in biochemistry beginning August 2022. A Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry, or a closely-related, chemistry-intensive field is required; additional post-doctoral or industrial experience is also highly preferred. Preference will be given to candidates that specialize in either computational or experimental biochemistry. The successful candidate will be expected to lead our physiological chemistry faculty team and to occasionally teach biochemistry courses or special topics courses. Our new colleague will be joining an ACS-approved program where undergraduate research is embedded into our culture. The successful candidate must therefore also be committed to establishing a high-quality, externally-funded research program involving undergraduate students.
