Three post-doctoral positions available in Chemistry at Trinity University, TX USA

The Department of Chemistry at Trinity University has three post-doctoral positions openings in following categories. This university is in San Antonia, TX USA. Chemistry department in this university is primarily undergraduate education. If you are interested working on small department for undergraduate students and small research group, follow following links.
 Candidates must have a Ph.D with a specialization in analytical chemistry. The ideal candidate will have experience in at least one of three areas: the development of porous polymer monoliths, capillary separations, or chromatographic theory development. The ideal candidate will have an interest in pursuing a career at a Predominantly Undergraduate Institution (PUI) with both teaching and research expectations. Assistance with the supervision of undergraduate researchers, and the presentation of research results is expected. 

Teaching opportunities, of up to one course per semester, at both the lower and upper division, in laboratories and lecture courses are provided and such participation is encouraged. Participation in departmental and university mentoring and professional development activities is encouraged. 

Applicants should send a letter of application indicating current career plans, vitae, (unofficial) undergraduate and graduate transcripts, evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available), and arrange for us to receive two letters of reference upon request. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The start date is flexible and is as early as 5/1/2011. Trinity University is an equal opportunity employer. 

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Send materials to Dr. Michelle Bushey, Department of Chemistry, Trinity University, One Trinity Place, San Antonio, Texas 78212-7200. 

Application materials may be sent via e-mail to:  mbushey@Trinity.edu. Inquiries can also be addressed to mbushey@trinity.edu. Electronic submissions must be followed by mailed hard copies. Further information is available at http://web.trinity.edu/x5065.xml and http://www.trinity.edu/mbushey/

Applicants must have a PhD in chemistry or biochemistry, and have a genuine interest in working with and mentoring talented undergraduate researchers.  The Hunsicker-Wang group works on Rieske proteins, specifically using mutatgenesis and chemical modification to understand the pH-dependent reduction potential.  This is a full-time research position and does not require a teaching commitment.  However, there will likely be opportunities to gain classroom or laboratory teaching experience.  This position is ideal for individuals interested in pursuing a career at a primarily undergraduate institution.  A background in chemistry or biochemistry is needed, with experience in any one of the following fields preferred: protein purification, site-directed mutagenesis, electrochemistry or protein crystallography. 

Applications should include a complete curriculum vita, 2-3 letters of recommendation, (unofficial) undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and a brief statement of why this position is of value to the applicant. The start date is flexible but could begin as early as 5/1/2011.  The position will remain open until filled, but interested candidates are encouraged to apply soon.    Trinity University is an equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Send materials to Dr. Laura Hunsicker-Wang, Department of Chemistry, Trinity University, One Trinity Place, San Antonio, Texas 78212-7200. 

Application materials may also be sent via e-mail to Dr. Hunsicker-Wang, lhunsick@trinity.edu.
