Subject: 18.05.10 Visiting Assistant Professor/Teaching Post Doct
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati invites applications for several Visiting Assistant
Professors / Teaching Postdoctoral Fellows (TPF). The TPF will conduct research in association with faculty
research groups in areas of theoretical/computational and experimental chemistry, based on their research
interest. Half of TPF time will be devoted to teaching and develop undergraduate chemistry classes, direct
laboratory classes and mentor undergraduate students, and half to conduct research. These positions are wellsuited
for scientists who wish to prepare for a career of teaching at a primarily undergraduate institution that
emphasizes excellence in both teaching and research.

For postdocs interested in computational research an ideal candidate would have a PhD in computational
chemistry/biophysics or a related discipline. We expect a solid chemical or biophysical background, a good
grasp of statistics, and data analysis techniques. Experience with programming and scripting languages and
familiarity with various molecular modeling packages (NAMD, Gromacs, Charmm etc.) and with the UNIX/
Linux operating system will be a significant advantage.

For postdocs interested in experimental research an ideal candidate would have a PhD in any subdiscipline of
chemistry with significant laboratory experience. We expect a solid chemical background and skill in
experimental chemistry that is complementary to existing areas of strength within the department. Research
areas may include sustainability, synthesis, chemical and biological sensors, materials, and protein
biochemistry, however we will consider creative candidates who show promise in any subdiscipline. Preference
will be given to those who have prior teaching experience in first-year chemistry and/or associated lab courses.
Overall Qualifications

PhD required or all requirements for the PhD must be completed by the appointment date. The University of
