CER Full-time Tenure-track Faculty Position at Ohio State University

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Ohio State University seeks to hire a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level in the area of Chemical or Biochemical Education Research. This position is part of a cluster of three scholars who will be hired in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Mathematics, and Physics, with one hire in each Department. Candidates interested in developing a consistent and strong research program in Chemical or Biochemical Education and joining an interdisciplinary community of researchers focused on educational research are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will present outstanding portfolios of research in discipline-based education research as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM education, including the implementation and study of evidence-based practices.

Through the Race, Inclusion and Social Equity (RAISE) initiative, Ohio State is enhancing our world-class research program on race, inclusion, and social equity. Over the next decade, the university will add at least 50 tenure-track faculty members to existing scholars whose research can help to narrow social disparities in educational attainment, health outcomes, rates of incarceration, political representation, environmental impacts, and economic well-being. Adding scholars in focused areas will enhance the University’s outstanding faculty and inform solutions to intractable issues. RAISE is part of Ohio State’s larger initiative to expand the size and impact of Ohio State’s faculty over the coming decade, while also enhancing academic and personal resources to support Ohio State scholars, educators, and practitioners through all phases of their careers.


A PhD in Chemistry or Biochemistry, or a closely related field, is required. The position will begin in Autumn 2023. A strong commitment to teaching and innovative research are required. Outstanding applicants whose research interests complement those of existing faculty and education researchers in the Department will be given priority. As a campus with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women and underrepresented minority groups. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
