As a researcher, you will build up a research group that is able to attract research funding and provide supervision and guidance to undergraduate and graduate students and PhD candidates. Your teaching activities – with a focus on teaching physical chemistry and NMR methods – will be part of the Education Institute for Molecular Sciences, which is responsible for the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in Chemistry, Molecular Life Sciences and Science.
Your research must fit in with the research activities of the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). A unique aspect of the current research programme is that methods development is combined with realistic applications in materials science such as energy materials (Li-battery materials, hydrogen storage materials), catalysis, and polymers. We wish to expand this research to applications in soft matter, linking up with research in IMM on soft nanotechnology, self-assembly, and/or understanding the underlying principles of soft matter in a biomimetic context. A key aspect for unravelling structure-function relations in soft matter is the ability to probe local molecular interactions and dynamics. Characterisation at the molecular scale and the development of constitutive models are needed to aid new developments in this field. Novel NMR methodology and particularly the recent surge of methodological developments in solid-state 1H NMR and hyperpolarised magnetic resonance offer novel opportunities.
- An enthusiastic scientist with research skills in the field of solid-state NMR spectroscopy, who wants to build up their own research group within IMM.
- A lecturer who will participate in our faculty's educational programmes.
- A background in solid-state NMR demonstrated by publications and presentations at international conferences.
- Employment: 32 - 40 hours per week.
- A gross monthly salary from a minimum of €3,746 to a maximum of €5,826 based on a 38-hour working week (scale 11-12). The exact salary depends on your qualifications and amount of relevant professional experience.
- In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
- Further information on a tenure track at the Faculty of Science can be found here.
- Duration of the contract: you will be appointed for a six-year period; after positive evaluation, you may be offered a permanent contract.
- The intended start date is 1 January 2021.
- You will be able to make use of our Dual Career Service: our Dual Career Officer will assist with family-related support, such as child care, and help your partner prepare for the local labour market and with finding an occupation.
- Are you interested in our excellent employment conditions?
