To support and strengthen the teaching activities of the highly popular MSc track in Analytical Sciences we are looking for a colleague who will focus her/his efforts on further enhancing the quality of the two-year program.

What are you going to do?
Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in many fields of science and society. For the development of new pharmaceuticals, the unravelling of complex biological systems or the design of new sustainable materials and chemical processes, methods and techniques are required to identify and quantify chemical compounds in a variety of materials and environments. The impact of analytical science is not restricted to chemistry: progress in medicine, biology, environmental and material sciences is strongly dependent on the availability of new analytical tools. As a lecturer, you will help in the preparation and organisation of lectures, practical labs, and projects for a range of courses in our program. This will be done in consultation with the course coordinators, who are responsible for the theoretical and didactic implementation of a course. The emphasis of the lecturer positions is on supporting the practical aspects of the education within our MSc programme.
The tasks of a lecturer consist of:

As a lecturer in the Analytical Sciences, you have:
- a Master of Science degree (or PhD degree) in analytical sciences, analytical chemistry, or a related discipline, with applications in one or more of the following: bio-analysis, environmental, industrial, pharmaceutical, or forensic analysis;

- fluency in oral and written English;
- a proactive and flexible attitude;
- the ability to work independently as well as in a team.
