Department of Chemistry
Two Assistant Professor positions in Green Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry, McGill University
Applications are invited for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions. The Department seeks candidates who are committed to creating a vigorous research program in any area of inquiry related to Green Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry, in line with McGill University’s strategic commitment in Green Chemistry, Sustainability and Advanced Materials, which has resulted in the recent completion of more than $30M of dedicated research infrastructure in the Department. We are particularly interested in research programs oriented towards Synthesis and Sustainable Materials, but will consider candidates with a wide range of interdisciplinary training experiences, including that in computational chemistry.
Candidates should have a PhD degree with postdoctoral experience, proven research ability and a strong commitment to service and teaching in Chemistry. Applications from senior candidates may be considered. Successful candidates will be expected to work well in a multi-disciplinary collaborative research environment and develop a research program and expertise that complements existing strengths within the Department of Chemistry.
All candidates must register on-line at: https://www.mcgill.ca/chemistry/apply and submit electronically their application package, consisting of a curriculum vitae, detailed research proposals with a startup budget and a statement of teaching experience and interests. During the registration, candidates will be prompted for contact information for at least three referees who can write letters of recommendation on their behalf. Review of applications will begin from October 31, 2019, with a possible start date of August 1, 2020. Salary will be negotiable, commensurate with qualifications and experience.
