Teaching/Research Postdoctoral Faculty Fellow
Applications are invited from outstanding candidates for our Teaching and Research Postdoctoral Faculty Fellow (PFF) program. Candidates in all areas of Chemistry are of interest. This innovative program is designed for recent Ph.D. recipients planning to pursue academic careers of teaching and research at four-year institutions. Initial appointments are full-time, with duties divided between teaching and research. Activities from May through August can be exclusively devoted to research. The instructional component will involve mentored experiences in teaching undergraduate courses. Research will be conducted in affiliation with a faculty research group. Additional information about the PFF program, as well as descriptions of our academic programs and research interests of faculty may be found at: www.bu.edu/chemistry/faculty/.
Interested candidates should send a cv, research summary (with an indication of desired research group), and teaching summary. The summaries should be 1-2 pages each. References will be requested after initial review of the application package. The material should be sent to the PFF Program Coordinator.
