Available Part-Time Faculty Positions
The Department of Natural Sciences at Marymount Manhattan College is seeking a part-time instructor to teach Organic Chemistry I Lab in Fall 2023. The lab meets on Wednesday afternoons from 1:00-4:50 pm, and it is compensated as 4 contact hours. See the course description below, and if interested and available, please contact Prof. Alessandra Leri, Chair of Natural Sciences, email@example.com, with your CV.
Organic Chemistry I Laboratory (CHEM 318)
This laboratory course provides a hands-on introduction to fundamental techniques in organic chemistry. Students perform experiments individually and share results with their peers. Preparation of detailed lab reports fosters skills in data analysis/representation and scientific writing. By the end of the semester, students acquire a broad skill set that equips them for more advanced work in organic synthesis.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
Clean and dry glassware correctly.
Separate solids from liquids via gravity and vacuum filtrations.
Wash and dry solids.
Carry out solid-liquid and liquid-liquid extractions.
Evaporate solvents in vacuo.
Purify solid products by recrystallization and sublimation.
Measure melting points of solids.
Conduct a simple distillation.
Obtain a gas chromatograph of a semi-volatile sample.
Perform thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and visualize TLC plates under UV light.
Operate the UV-Vis spectrometer to collect UV-Vis spectra and make kinetic measurements.
Measure the optical rotation of a sample.
Maintain a detailed, well-organized lab notebook.
Synthesize pre-lab preparation, experimental results, and interpretation of data into lab reports in the style of scientific papers.
Design and carry out an experiment to solve a forensic mystery.
Deliver the results of the forensic case study by oral presentation.
Observe proper lab safety and waste management protocols.
