Dear Friends,

We have a tenure track position in neuroscience and chemistry available.  For some reason we have only received a small handful of applications.  I am wondering if any of you have some insight into why that might be and what we might do differently if we have to re-do the search next year.  We have advertised it in all the usual places, as well as using Researchgate, LinkedIn, and social media, and targeted emails.

The ad is:

The Neuroscience Program and Chemistry Department seek to fill a tenure-track position in Neurochemistry. This is a joint appointment to both the Neuroscience Program and the Chemistry Department. The Neuroscience Program currently includes members from the Departments of Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, Philosophy and Engineering. Both the Neuroscience Program and Chemistry Department are committed to culturally and academically diverse faculty to teach our diverse student body. The position will start in August 2020. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, neuroscience or related field. The successful candidate will be expected to teach core courses in the Neuroscience major, introductory courses in the Chemistry major, and advanced courses in neurochemistry, and develop and maintain a productive research program in neurochemistry that involves undergraduate students. Trinity College is located in an urban environment and nearby institutions include Hartford Hospital, the Institute of Living, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and University of Connecticut Medical School with active collaborations with Trinity faculty.

Trinity College seeks to attract a diverse faculty, is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and actively seeks applications from women and other underrepresented groups.

Inquiries may be addressed to Professor Sarah Raskin<mailto:Sarah.Raskin at trincoll.edu>.

Thanks for any suggestions! Backchannel is great sarah.raskin at trincoll.edu
