The Connecticut College Department of Chemistry invites applications for a full-time academic year position at the rank of lecturer beginning Fall 2020. The successful candidate will teach lab and recitation sections for organic chemistry and a combination of any of the following - general chemistry, biochemistry and instrument maintenance. Some lab sections are taught in the evening. Other responsibilities include lab set-up, academic advising and some shared responsibilities for purchasing and overseeing department chemicals and supplies. The department offers ACS-certified majors in chemistry and biochemistry, as well as an interdisciplinary major in biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology. In lecturers, the College seeks outstanding teachers who are committed to student learning and will effectively engage students in both group and one-on-one instruction. MS degree in chemistry or higher is required. Teaching experience is required.
Lecturers are voting members of the faculty and vital contributors to their departments. Their teaching load is 3/3. Lecturer appointments begin with a two-year period; upon successful reviews, the next two appointments are for three and five years, followed by subsequent five-year periods. Reviews are based on teaching and service, and there is no expectation for research.
