Non-Tenured Faculty

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame seeks applicants for a full-time teaching faculty position in the Science & Engineering Scholars program. This program supports first generation and underserved student populations in their first year of college. Responsibilities will be primarily in first-year general chemistry and/or organic chemistry lecture courses and curriculum development. Depending upon the extent of past experience, this professional staff position will carry the title of Assistant, Associate, or Full Teaching Professor. Successful candidates will be expected to assume leadership roles in the department’s undergraduate program, which is nationally recognized for teaching excellence. Preference will be given to candidates having a Ph.D. in physical or organic chemistry and a demonstrated independent track record of teaching at the college/university level. Demonstrated teaching excellence (i.e. prior teaching experience and use of evidence-based practices) is also expected. Candidates should upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy that includes a portfolio of prior independent teaching experience, and should also arrange for the submission of at least three letters of recommendation to http://apply.interfolio.com/69856. Application deadline is December 15, 2019.


Postdoctoral

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Prof. Mayland Chang to conduct biomedical research. The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, pharmacokinetics, or proteomics. Prior experience in bioanalytical method development, pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, and proteomics is particularly desired. Alternatively, if the candidate would like to learn pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, proteomics, and biochemical assays, my laboratory can teach these. The training is multidisciplinary (bioanalytical chemistry, proteomics, biochemistry, pharmacology animal models of disease) and translational (analyses of human tissues from patients with disease and healthy controls), and will expand opportunities to solve biomedical problems. Current projects focus on understanding the molecular basis of diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, traumatic brain injury, and ocular diseases, identification and quantification of proteins, and the evaluation of the drug-like properties of potential pharmaceutical lead compounds. The work environment is multidisciplinary and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work among a large group of scientists of diverse backgrounds and interests within our group. Candidates should have strong communication skills, ability to work independently and in a team setting in a multidisciplinary environment, willingness to work with animals, and excellent organizational skills. Interested candidates should contact Prof. Mayland Chang at mchang@nd.edu.

The laboratory of Prof. Juan R. Del Valle in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame is currently accepting applications for an open Postdoctoral position in Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry. Research projects will focus on the chemical synthesis of biologically active peptidomimetics and/or small molecules, particularly those that target protein-protein interactions and ER stress response pathways. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemistry and a strong background in multi-step organic synthesis. Priority will be given to highly motivated, recent Ph.D. graduates with additional experience in peptide synthesis techniques and/or structure-activity relationship studies. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required. Our group offers opportunities for additional scientific growth in the areas of biophysical chemistry, drug discovery, and chemical biology. Involvement in other ongoing interdisciplinary efforts will be an option for interested candidates.

The laboratory of Prof. Juan Del Valle in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame is currently accepting applications for an open Postdoctoral position in Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery. Research projects will focus on the development of constrained peptidomimetics targeting protein-protein interactions relevant to cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Duties will include recombinant protein expression/purification, development of in vitro biochemical assays, and evaluation of optimized inhibitors in cellular assays. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field and a strong background in chemical biology. Priority will be given to highly motivated, recent Ph.D. graduates with additional experience in drug design, molecular pharmacology, and/or structural biology. Our group offers opportunities for additional scientific growth in the areas of biophysical chemistry and targeted-oriented synthesis. Involvement in other ongoing interdisciplinary efforts will be an option for interested candidates.
