The Department of Chemistry at The University of Texas at San Antonio (https://chemistry.utsa.edu/) invites applications and nominations for a Tenured Professor position/Chair of the Department of Chemistry. The Chair will lead a rapidly growing department in a Hispanic-Serving Institution that is rich in endowed positions, including two Robert A. Welch endowed positions, with nationally and internationally recognized faculty in the traditional areas of chemistry as well as interdisciplinary fields such as medicinal chemistry and materials science. The Chair will preside over the expansion of its faculty and will bolster both the graduate and undergraduate programs in chemistry as UTSA grows from its current 30,000 to 45,000 students over the next decade. This is an exciting time for the department with a wealth of opportunities as it aspires to become one of the premier chemistry departments in the country by recruiting world-leading faculty, educating and inspiring our diverse student body, and defining new chemical frontiers through transformative research endeavors.
Required qualifications of the successful candidate are a doctorate in chemistry or a related field, outstanding research and teaching records that warrant an appointment at the rank of full professor with tenure (contingent upon Board of Regents approval). The successful candidate must demonstrate their ability to work with and be sensitive to the educational needs of diverse urban populations and support the University’s commitment to thrive as a Hispanic Serving Institution and a model for student success. Preferred qualifications are experience in an academic supervisory capacity/leadership position, knowledge of innovative curriculum development and implementation and leadership in professional organizations. Intellectual contributions in the areas of diversity, inclusion and prior experience teaching and mentoring students from diverse cultural backgrounds are also desirable.
Review of applications will begin on October 28th and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit their CV, statements of research interests (4-page limit), teaching interests (1-page limit), and “vision and leadership” (2-page limit), all of which include discussion of the role diversity and inclusion and how it plays in an academic environment. Also include the complete contact information for three to five professional references, all to be uploaded via the STARS application system https://jobs.utsa.edu/. Nominations should be sent to Dr. Angela Speck, search committee chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
