Faculty appointments spanning various departments

Analytical Sciences and Engineering

Faculty appointments in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry or Department of Chemical of Biomolecular Engineering

The University of Notre Dame is pleased to announce six new faculty positions in Analytical Sciences and Engineering. The positions range from junior level through tenured senior faculty to endowed chair appointments. Successful candidates may choose to establish their programs in Notre Dame’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry or the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, or both.

Since 2006, Notre Dame has initiated the fastest growing analytical sciences program in the U.S., and now seeks to build upon that momentum by leveraging the initial investment in excellence with a disciplined hiring program designed to attract world-leading scholars in the chemical measurement sciences. These positions will impact the analytical sciences by taking advantage of parallel efforts in the targeted departments, the university, the region, and the state of Indiana - including: (a) strongly overlapping hiring initiatives in Notre Dame’s Colleges of Science and Engineering, (b) investments in molecular diagnostics through the Advanced Diagnostics & Therapeutics strategic research investments, (c) initiatives to establish degree programs in analytical sciences, and (d) state-wide education and research initiatives developed in concert with colleagues at Indiana University and Purdue University.

The positions include salary, start-up funding and laboratory space commensurate with level. Junior candidates should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, detailed research plan, and statement of  teaching interests directed to Paul W. Bohn/Norman J. Dovichi, Chair, ASEND Search Committee. Candidates must also arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent to the search committee via the application website, although senior applicants can apply in confidence. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until suitable candidates are identified.


Cancer Research

Faculty appointments in the Department of Biological Sciences or the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
