Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) - Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor faculty position in the research area of RNA chemistry. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated expertise in applying chemical methods to study RNA structure-function, protein-RNA complexes, or RNA-targeted small molecule synthesis. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally visible research program supported by external funding and will contribute to teaching within the areas of organic chemistry. Normal teaching load for faculty with active research programs is one course per semester plus ancillary duties. A Ph.D., research publications, and postdoctoral (or comparable industrial) experience are required.

This position is related to recent Departmental and University strategic initiatives, and builds upon the strong history of RNA science at CWRU. The new hire will thus complement current expertise in RNA science, and be expected to establish collaborations with scientists at centers such as the Center for RNA Science & Therapeutics, the Center for AIDS Research, and the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.

To be considered, a letter of application, CV, and a summary of research plans should be sent by email c/o Suzi Mason ( before November 10, 2017. In addition, three letters of recommendation should be independently emailed directly to Suzi Mason by this date.
