Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry (F0927W)

The Department of Chemistry at William & Mary, a public university of the Commonwealth of Virginia, invites applications for a one-year, non-tenure-track Visiting Assistant Professor position that will begin August 10, 2022. We seek an effective teacher with expertise in general chemistry instruction. The successful applicant will have a 3-3 teaching load primarily contributing to our general chemistry curricula. Other opportunities for professional development may also be available through W&M.

Lecturer of Chemistry & Director of General Chemistry Laboratories (position F0329W)

     The Department of Chemistry at William & Mary invites applications for a non-tenure-track Lecturer position that will begin August 10, 2022.
     Initial term will be three years, renewable subject to satisfactory performance, department needs and funding. We seek an individual with passion and expertise for leading and teaching general chemistry laboratory courses, as well as enthusiasm for teaching general chemistry and general education lecture courses for the Department of Chemistry.
     The successful applicant will be responsible for the General Chemistry Lab curriculum, be the instructor of record for all general chemistry laboratory sections, develop and implement updated experiments, and provide weekly pre-lab discussion videos. General chemistry labs have typical enrollments of 400 (Fall), 200 (Spring). Additional academic year teaching responsibilities will typically comprise either two laboratory sections or one laboratory section and one lecture course per semester. These duties encompass about 80% of the academic year position.
     Additionally, the Lecturer will train and manage undergraduate/Master’s student general chemistry lab teaching assistants and graders, coordinate lab section instructors, supervise the general chemistry laboratory staff, manage the inventory and equipment needed to teach the general chemistry labs, and participate in governance at the department level and possibly beyond. These duties comprise 20% of the academic year position.
     While this is a 9-month, academic year faculty appointment, our expectation is that summer general chemistry lab, and possibly lecture, instruction needs will also be met by the appointee. Enrollment-based supplementary income, in the form of a separate summer school instructional contract, will be provided for teaching summer school courses.
