The Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh seeks to appoint a full-time
Chemistry Lecturer, for a renewable 8-month contract, outside of the tenure stream, effective
September 2018, and pending budgetary approval. Review of applications will begin on 6
November 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach two large enrollment courses in each of the fall
and spring terms. These courses would primarily be in our General Chemistry program but could
extend, on occasion, to other courses, depending on the qualifications of the successful applicant.
In addition, as a full-time lecturer, they will have administrative and committee duties
commensurate with a large chemistry service program at a major university and are expected to
have a full-time presence on campus. Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry
from an accredited university.
All application materials should be submitted electronically, as per the instructions found at
https://facultysearch.as.pitt.edu/apply/index/MjA1. Applicants should provide a cover letter, a
curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching preparation and experience, a teaching philosophy
including preferred pedagogical approaches, as well as other concise information (e.g., Peer
Evaluations of Teaching; summaries of Student Opinion Surveys of Teaching; and Syllabi of
courses taught) which the candidate wishes to have considered. In addition, three reference letters
are required. For each reference, you will have the opportunity to input an email address, and an
email notification will be sent to the designated address with instructions about uploading the
letters to our system. Visit our web site, http://www.chem.pitt.edu, to learn more about our
