Employment Opportunities

Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track position in the broad of area of analytical sciences. This hire is part of ongoing departmental expansion in multiple areas. Our primary focus is on making a junior faculty appointment; however, outstanding candidates at all levels are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will join an environment enriched by cross-disciplinary programs such as the Analytical Sciences & Engineering and Advanced Diagnostics & Therapeutics initiatives. We are particularly interested in scholars whose research interests closely align with the emerging initiative on Health and Well-Being. Candidates are asked to provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a detailed research plan, and a statement of teaching philosophy and interests. Junior candidates should also arrange for the submission of at least three letters of recommendation; senior candidates are welcome to apply in confidence. All materials should be submitted to the application website (https://apply.interfolio.com/65905). Applications will be considered on a rolling basis upon receipt but must be received by October 15th, 2019 to receive full consideration. The University of Notre Dame seeks to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty, staff, and administration. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to building a culturally diverse workplace. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates, veterans and individuals with disabilities, and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity.

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.
