Candidates must have a doctoral degree in chemistry or a closely related field and a strong, promising record of scholarship and productivity. Postdoctoral or equivalent experience in an academic, government, national laboratory, or industrial setting is highly desired.

The University also provides a wide range of accessible state-of-the-art research facilities as listed at: https://research.uiowa.edu/researchers/core-facilities.



The application materials should include a cover letter describing academic qualifications and professional experience, current CV, and academic transcripts. Applicants should also provide 1) a document that describes current expertise and future goals for an independent research program in physical chemistry, including plans for pursuing funding, dissemination of results, and broader impacts, with one-page summary and three proposals of 2-4 pages each; 2) one-page teaching statement detailing the applicant’s practices and philosophy for successful teaching and mentoring and 3) one-page diversity statement detailing how teaching, service, and scholarship can support the success of students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in chemistry, including how the applicant would further the Department’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity as stated at https://chem.uiowa.edu/about/diversity-statement. Please arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to: chem-facsearch@uiowa.edu. Application review will begin by October 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
