Faculty

Tenure Track Assistant Professor - Materials Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is embarking on a strategic hiring program enabled by a $102M investment in the new Physical Sciences Building and a $45M investment in the University’s core facilities. We are seeking talented applicants for two tenure-track faculty at the Assistant Professor level to begin September 2019 or thereafter. Under exceptional circumstances, highly qualified candidates at other ranks may receive consideration. We seek applicants who will develop or continue vigorous research programs in the areas of synthetic materials chemistry and/or characterization of materials/interfaces.

Tenure Track Assistant Professor - DNA/RNA Delivery
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts and the Center for Bioactive Delivery at the Institute for Applied Life Sciences are embarking on a strategic hiring program enabled by the creation of this Institute. Applications are invited for a full-time, tenure track faculty position in the Chemistry Department at the Assistant Professor level to begin September 2019 or thereafter. We seek applicants who will develop or continue a vigorous research program in the use of or delivery of biomolecules, especially RNA, for the development of therapeutic candidates to treat diseases or disorders. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, siRNA/miRNA methodologies or delivery technologies, mRNA-based therapies, RNA/protein design, selection or engineering, and novel genome editing technologies.

Tenure Track Professor - Chemical Immunology
The Department of Chemistry and the Department of Veterinary and Animal Science at the University of Massachusetts along with the Center for Bioactive Delivery within the Institute for Applied Life Sciences are embarking on a strategic hiring program enabled by the creation of this Institute. Applications are invited for a full-time, tenure track faculty position in the area of translational chemical immunology in the Department of Chemistry or in the Department of Veterinary and Animal Science at the Assistant Professor level to begin September 2019 or thereafter. We seek applicants with experience in chemistry-driven immune intervention who will develop or continue a vigorous research program focused at the intersection of immunology/immunotherapy and chemistry. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, identification of new immune modulators or immune system components, development of materials for controlling or exploiting immunological factors and responses, novel vaccine strategies, immunotherapeutics, protein engineering with specific interests towards designing and synthesizing antibody-like biologics and chemically-relatable proteins, and novel biological and chemical strategies to manipulate the immune system for therapeutic purposes, particularly in a time or stimuli responsive manner. The use of relevant animal models is especially sought. We envision the candidate hired for this position may interact closely with the hire identified in the ongoing search in Veterinary and Animal Science for an immunologist in the area of "Engineering Immune Responses.
