The Department of Chemistry (www.ksu.edu/chem) is seeking to fill a position in Organic Chemistry.

Kansas State University is recognized by the Princeton Review as one of America’s best colleges, and U.S. News & World Report lists the university among the top 75 public universities in the U.S. Kansas State University is implementing an aggressive plan to become a top 50 public research university by 2025.

Kansas State University is a Big 12 institution with an enrollment of nearly 25,000 students. It is located in Manhattan, located in the northeastern part of Kansas at the junction of the Kansas River and the Big Blue River. Manhattan has 55,000 inhabitants (without its student population) and is the principal city of the Manhattan, Kansas Metropolitan Statistical Area with an estimated population of 115,000.

The Chemistry Department currently consists of 16 full-time faculty members, five lecturers/lab directors, about 65 graduate students, and approximately 15 postdoctoral associates and visiting scholars. The Department continues to be in a growth phase. Seven new faculty members were hired in the past 8 years; these additions are reflected in a youthful and dynamic research environment. The research environment at Kansas State is defined by its highly interdisciplinary nature.
