The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in biochemistry and related areas of life sciences. We seek highly creative individuals whose research interests complement those of the department, including, but not limited to, protein complexes and machineries, cellular assemblies and extracellular matrix, redox biology, protein post-translational modifications, DNA and RNA metabolism and interactions, and membrane proteins. We are interested in candidates who emphasize a mechanistic understanding of complex biological problems by utilizing novel biochemical, bioanalytical, bioinorganic, bioorganic or biophysical approaches. The successful candidates should have a PhD in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology, or related fields, and the potential for excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels in Biochemistry and Chemistry.


Founded in 1743, the University of Delaware combines tradition and innovation, offering students a rich heritage along with the latest in instructional and research technology. Centrally located on the I-95 corridor between New York City and Washington, D.C., UD is a Land Grant, Sea Grant, Space Grant, and Carnegie Research University with external funding exceeding $200 million. As a state-assisted, privately governed institution, UD enrolls approximately 18,000 undergraduates and 4,000 graduate students. Within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the successful candidate will benefit from supportive intellectual environment, excellent core facilities and NIH-funded INBRE and COBRE centers. UD has a strategic partnership with Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, and Helen F. Graham Cancer Center and Research Institute at Christiana Care to foster translational research. UD is also the host institution of a recently established National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL), located in the newly developed Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) campus.


Applicants should apply on-line here on Interfolio and should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, description of initial research plans, statement of teaching philosophy and arrange for submission of at least three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. All application materials will be shared with departmental faculty. Questions should be directed to Ms. Susan Cheadle at:

Due to the COVID-19 out-break, the Regional Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching will be postponed to the summer of 2021. The good news is that we will be able to offer an online SI, as we have in the past, led by Bill Wischusen. Keep your eye on the newsletter or the website as we will be looking for ways to engage the community virtually.
