Job posting: assistant professor, DePaul University, Chicago, IL

From the inbox, an organic/polymer assistant professor position at DePaul University:
The Department of Chemistry at DePaul University invites applications for a tenure-track position in organic/polymer chemistry at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning with autumn 2016. The ACS-certified Chemistry Department at DePaul offers several B.S. degree tracks in chemistry, a standard M.S. degree with several track and thesis options, and a new M.S. degree in polymer and coatings science. Successful candidates will be expected to teach at all levels of our program, with a particular emphasis on organic and polymer chemistry, plus courses in DePaul's Liberal Studies Program.
Best wishes to those interested.  


  1. Is it just me, or are others here seeing some increased interest in and commitment to lower-level polymer programs? My alma mater (undergraduate) just instituted one.

  2. Breaking my radio silence to note that it's a little surprising to see a TT academic advert being sent to CJ. DePaul should certainly not have any issues attracting enough competitive candidates to their location.

    1. CJ is a pretty reputable source for job listings. I got a job on this site almost a year and a half ago that wasn't listed anywhere else.

    2. Glad to hear that - was your job in academia (TT) or industry? I don't mean to sound cynical, but am curious if you are you still with that employer.
