Teaching Jobs for Chemistry and Related Science Majors

Jobs for Chemistry (and Related Sciences) Majors – Teaching at Independent College-Prep Schools


Southern Teachers Agency, the nation’s most experienced educational placement service, has helped great schools hire great teachers since 1902.  Today, we serve nearly 600 of the South and Mid-Atlantic regions’ top private and independent schools.


STA currently has 186 openings listed for Science teachers, including 63 for Chemistry teachers.

Hiring Expectations at independent schools

  • Schools focus on prospective teachers’ academic credentials and their skills in communicating and building relationships with teenagers.  Many teacher candidates have enjoyed working with kids as camp counselors and recreation league coaches.
  • Certainly, a degree in secondary/science education and some undergraduate student-teaching experience can be advantageous, but they aren’t hiring prerequisites.  Schools hire Science majors to teach Science courses—ideally, Chemistry majors to teach Chemistry courses—and they provide new faculty members with ongoing support and professional development.
  • Generally, students should have GPAs of 3.0 or higher to be strong candidates for these teaching positions.
