|The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for tenure-track positions in all areas of chemistry and biochemistry. Exceptional candidates at all levels are encouraged to apply. Candidates must provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a detailed research plan, and a statement of teaching interests. Junior candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation, while senior applicants can apply in confidence. All materials should be submitted to this application website. Applications must be received by October 15th 2015 to receive full consideration. This appointment is also contingent upon the successful completion of a background check. Applicants will be asked to identify all felony convictions and/or pending felony charges. Felony convictions do not automatically bar an individual from employment. Each case will be examined separately to determine the appropriateness of employment in the particular position. Failure to be forthcoming or dishonesty with respect to felony disclosures can result in the disqualification of a candidate. The full procedure can be viewed at http://facultyhandbook.nd.edu/university-policies/background-check-procedure-for-prospective-faculty/. The University of Notre Dame seeks to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty, staff and administration. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to building a culturally diverse workplace. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates and others that will enhance our community.
