Tenure-Track Chemistry Faculty Position at Oregon State University

Tenure-Track Chemistry Faculty Position at Oregon State University

The Department of Chemistry at Oregon State University (OSU) seeks to fill one Tenure-Track faculty position starting in Fall 2024 at the rank of Assistant Professor in the areas of inorganic materials chemistry. We are seeking candidates who are interested in developing innovative inter- or trans-disciplinary research programs to revolutionize sustainable inorganic materials discovery for emerging applications in electronics, energy, and environment. Preference will be given to candidates who will focus on the discovery of next-generation materials for semiconductor industries by employing automated inorganic synthesis through solution-based routes, solid-state reactions, or thin-film deposition and who employ artificial intelligence/machine learning in their experimental research. The Department is home to a sophisticated, digitally enabled continuous flow synthesis system.

The proposed research program should demonstrate proficiency or significant potential to garner national and international recognition with sustainable external grants. The successful candidate is expected to teach courses in Inorganic Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, special topics, and general chemistry, broadly defined. The successful candidate is expected to fulfill working, teaching, and mentoring responsibilities in ways that provide equity and inclusivity for all students, faculty, and staff at OSU. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Chemistry or a related scientific field.

To review each job posting and apply, please submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and diversity statement online and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. For full consideration, applications should be received by October 31, 2023; however, the position will remain open until filled. Apply to posting # 144097 at

The College of Science and the Department of Chemistry at OSU are committed to creating equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for their students, faculty, and staff. One of our primary foci is enhancing recruitment, retention, and success for first-generation, underrepresented racial and ethnic minority, and female students or postdoctoral fellows. In addition, several faculty-led initiatives and committees focus on diversity and inclusivity in the classroom and beyond. To meet these goals, we value involvement in professional societies committed to advancing URMs in STEM (e.g., SACNAS, Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science). OSU is an AA/EOE/Vets/Disabled. OSU commits to inclusive excellence by advancing equity and diversity in all that we do. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who demonstrate the ability to help us achieve our vision of a diverse and inclusive community.
