Associate Professor in organic analytical chemistry
Closing date: 4 June 2018.
Stockholm University announces a tenured position as associate professor in organic analytical chemistry. Stockholm University has strong research environments in chemistry as well as in environmental science, including access to omics research platforms at the Science for Life Laboratory, a joint facility in Stockholm for scientists from Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institute and Uppsala University.
The merger to build the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES) in 2015 created a research environment that combines environmental science and analytical chemistry and strengthened the university‘s profile area "Climate, seas and environment". ACES does research spanning over the fields of analytical and environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, regulatory toxicology, atmospheric science and biogeochemistry. The department is structured into five units with more than 220 employees and instrumental and laboratory infrastructure for various types of chemical analysis and measurement is broad.
The Analytical Chemistry Unit consists of 20 permanent staff and graduate students. Research is focused on developing qualitative and quantitative methods for analysis of organic compounds, from sampling and clean-up, to chromatography, mass spectrometry and data analysis. The chemical dimensions of ACES‘ environmental science research are largely related to organic molecules. The existing research and analytical instrumentation of the analytical chemistry unit are also focused almost exclusively on organic molecules. The unit is responsible for the two-year Master‘s programme in analytical chemistry, and for teaching basic level courses in analytical chemistry in the chemistry candidate programme.
Due to retirements, the Analytical Chemistry unit is entering a period of renewal and we are recruiting new staff members to further the development of analytical chemistry at Stockholm University. For the development, it is essential that the new associate professor creates strong research synergies both with the existing analytical chemists in the unit, with environmental scientists within the department but also with chemists in other departments and nearby facilities.
Organic analytical chemistry
Research, teaching and supervision.
In order to qualify for employment as associate professor, the applicant must have demonstrated good teaching skills and have a doctoral degree, or equivalent research expertise, of relevance to the subject area and the main responsibilities of the position.
All teaching positions at Stockholm University require the ability to collaborate and the general ability and suitability to perform one‘s duties.
