Applications are invited for the post of Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry. The successful candidate will also be appointed to the Sydney Bailey Fellowship at St Peter's College. The appointment will initially be for five years, at which point, upon completion of a successful review, the post-holder will be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age.
The University of Oxford is committed to fostering an inclusive culture that promotes equality, values diversity, and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected. We recognise that the broad range of experiences that a diverse staff and student body brings strengthens our research and enhances our teaching, and that in order for Oxford to remain a world-leading institution we must continue to provide an inclusive, fair and open environment that allows everyone to grow and flourish. We particularly welcome applications from female and black and minority ethnic candidates, and also from early career researchers.
We wish to appoint a candidate whose research interests are centred in the development and application of transformative methods that can enable and advance modern chemistry. The candidate will be an expert in organic chemistry, and have a strong, contemporary research vision. A wide range of research backgrounds for the candidate are appropriate, for example (but not limited to) the development of new methods in analytical chemistry, mechanistic studies including computation, or the development of emerging technologies.
Candidates should hold a doctorate in a field relevant to Organic Chemistry, and have a very strong track record, or show outstanding promise, in independent research. They should be able to demonstrate their ability to attract research funding from appropriate sources. If already in an academic position, they should provide evidence of the ability to lead a group of researchers at different career stages. They should be able to demonstrate excellence (or the potential for excellence) in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate in the administration of the subject and in the wider life and governance of the College.
The post will be based in the Department of Chemistry, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TA and St Peter’s College, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford, OX1 2DL. The combined University and College salary will be according to experience on a scale from £50,300 – 67,541 p.a. Benefits of the Fellowship at St Peter's College include Governing Body membership, a housing allowance of £10,450 per annum (taxable and pensionable), a personal academic budget of £1,045 p.a., access to housing loan and health care schemes, a teaching room in college, and full college dining rights. An allowance of £2,931 p.a. would be payable upon award of Full Professor title.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 24th February 2023 can be considered. The interviews are likely to take place in April 2023, and candidates must be available to travel to Oxford for this period. The anticipated start date is October 2023.
