ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. A tenure-track position is available for fall 2014 in the Department of Natural Sciences. We are located on Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus at 60th St. and Columbus Avenue in Manhattan.  The campus is home to Fordham College at Lincoln Center and the Graduate Schools of Law, Business, Education and Social Service. The department offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate major in Natural Science with the opportunity for majors to complete a concentration within the major in Molecular Biology, Organismic Biology or Chemical Sciences. Natural Science majors pursue careers in health professions such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy and optometry as well as disciplinary graduate programs (e.g. neuroscience, chemistry, and forensic science). Teaching responsibilities include undergraduate major courses (lecture and laboratory) in General Chemistry as well as interdisciplinary core science courses for non majors. There is an opportunity to develop an upper level course in the candidate’s area of expertise. The successful candidate is expected to develop an active research program in his/her scientific discipline (preferably in environmental or forensic chemistry) that will involve upper-level undergraduates. Teaching experience is essential; postdoctoral experience is desirable. The Department is seeking a candidate who is interested in developing innovative pedagogical strategies in the sciences. Fordham is an independent, Catholic university in the Jesuit tradition that welcomes applications from men and women of all backgrounds.

Send vita, statement of teaching and research interests and three letters of reference to 24317. Inquiries or difficulties in the application process should be directed to Dr. Grace Vernon, Chairperson, Deadline: February 18. Fordham is an AA/EOE Employer.
