Chemistry Teacher-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow Positions

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of San Diego, a Primarily Undergraduate Institution, is seeking applications for 3 teacher-scholar postdoctoral positions. Two of the positions are funded by research grants and will be in the labs of Dr. Timothy Clark (organic and organometallic chemistry) or Dr. David De Haan (atmospheric chemistry), and will involve undergraduate teaching, and mentoring undergraduate science majors in the research lab. The third postdoctoral research fellowship is funded through the College of Arts and Science with the goal of enhancing diversity. The final opportunity has similar expectation of teaching, research and mentoring, and the postdoc can also be mentored by Dr. Timothy Clark or Dr. David De Haan. Current research areas include: the development of metal-catalyzed borylation reactions of organic molecules; lab studies of the atmospheric aging of brown carbon aerosol in smoke plumes, and the development of inline methods for determining aerosol phase via bounce fraction measurements.

These postdoctoral research experiences are ideally suited for candidates that are interested in pursuing a faculty position at a Primarily Undergraduate Institution, as you will have opportunities to be mentored in high-level research, to teach and mentor undergraduate students / researchers, and to engage in the department culture of academic service. Start dates between 1 June and 23 August 2023 will be considered. Starting salary will be determined based on experience within the federal guidelines for exempt employees and includes comprehensive healthcare and other benefits. Additional funding for conference and research travel and expenses is available. Our program and our university is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Applicants from historically excluded groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
