Applications are invited for the post of Associate Professor (or Professor) of Inorganic Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford. This is the standard independent academic staff grade at the University of Oxford: it can be an entry level post, and is equivalent to posts which may be labelled “Lecturer” elsewhere. The successful candidate will also be appointed to a Tutorial Fellowship at Magdalen College, under arrangements described in the Job Description and Selection Criteria. The appointment will be initially for 5 years at which point, upon completion of a successful review, the postholder will be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age.
The combined University and College salary will be according to experience on a scale from £48,835 to £65,574 p.a. plus substantial additional benefits, including a College housing allowance (currently £15,000 p.a.) The College also offers allowances for research and entertainment. An allowance of £2,846 p.a. would be payable upon award of Full Professor title.
We intend to appoint a candidate with pioneering research interests that align with one or more of the eight Research Themes of the Department. The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in inorganic chemistry or a related field, and have a proven track record of high-quality research and publication at an internationally excellent standard, along with evidence of imaginative research plans and the potential to initiate, lead and manage new research initiatives in the Department and the wider University. Applicants at an early stage of their independent academic careers are particularly encouraged to apply.
The postholder will be expected to engage in original research within the Department of Chemistry, and to secure research funding, and to collaborate, where appropriate, with existing staff. The post will also involve undergraduate and graduate teaching, and MChem and doctoral student supervision and mentoring, as well as some administrative tasks to support the Department. The successful candidate will also teach undergraduates at Magdalen College and participate in the administration of the subject and in the wider life of the College. The post will be based in the Department of Chemistry, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TA and Magdalen College, Oxford, OX1 4AU.
Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. The Department has held an Athena SWAN Silver Award since September 2015 in recognition of its commitment to addressing gender inequalities, to tackling the unequal representation of women in science, and to improving career progression for female academics. We are committed to ensuring an inclusive interview process and will reimburse up to £250 towards any additional care costs incurred as a result of attending an interview for this position.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford. All applicants will be judged on merit, according to the selection criteria.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 31st January 2022 can be considered. The interviews are likely to take place in mid-late March 2022 and the expectation is that these will take place in Oxford. The anticipated start date is 1 September 2022.
