The department posts all open positions on this bulletin board. Positions can range from Postdoctoral research positions, to Staff openings in the Department and individual research centers. For your convenience, the academic and research positions are further identified by discipline whenever possible.


Lecturer Position in Chemistry

The Chemistry Division at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) seeks candidates for a full-time lecturer position starting August 2014 (earlier start date is possible and negotiable). Applicants must have a Ph.D. in chemistry. The primary responsibilities include teaching undergraduate level courses including general chemistry and organic chemistry. Additional responsibilities include oversight and maintenance of chemistry teaching laboratory instruments. The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of a longer-term renewable contract based on performance and mutual satisfaction.

Please visit http://science.iit.edu/chemistry for further information. Applicants should send a cover letter including a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, experience with undergraduate lab oversight instrument maintenance, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent to chemistry_search@iit.edu, or as a hard copy to Professor Adam S. Hock, Department of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL 60616. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. IIT is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Individuals from underrepresented groups in physical sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.


Postdoctoral Position in Chemistry

A postdoctoral position is available at the Illinois Institute of Technology, located in Chicago. Research will focus on improving the speed and accuracy of binding free energy methods based on implicit ligand theory (http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4751284). The ideal candidate will have a background in computational/theoretical chemistry or physics (especially statistical mechanics), strong computer programming skills, and interest in chemical biology and drug discovery. A PhD is required prior to the start date, which will be between June 2014 and early fall. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 2-3 references to david.minh@iit.edu. For more information about the group, see mypages.iit.edu/~dminh/.
