The Department of Chemistry, in association with Trinity and St Peterís Colleges, wishes to appoint to an Associate Professorship or Professorship in Inorganic Chemistry, with effect from 1 September 2015, or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a joint appointment: the person appointed to the Associate Professorship or Professorship will also be appointed to a Fellowship at Trinity College and to a non-stipendiary Lectureship at St Peterís College. This is a permanent full-time position based at the Department of Chemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3TA and Trinity College, Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3BH.

In exceptional cases, where the candidate has previously established an academic standing at an appropriate level of distinction, the title of full professor may be awarded at the time of appointment.

The area of specialisation for this post is Inorganic Chemistry. The successful candidate will have a proven high quality research track record with research interests and expertise in any area of Inorganic Chemistry, although preference is likely to given for those with interests in one of the following: computational solid state and/or computational materials chemistry; biological inorganic chemistry; any area with applications in catalysis; any area with applications in energy. Following a series of recent appointments in the areas of coordination chemistry, and transition metal and main group molecular and organometallic chemistry, preference is likely to be given to applicants whose main areas of interest do not substantially overlap with these areas.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in a field relevant to Inorganic Chemistry and will demonstrate: a research record of international standing appropriate to the stage of his or her career; the ability to attract sufficient external funding to maintain an active research program; evidence of the ability to teach effectively, both at undergraduate and graduate level, a wide range of topics within the field of Inorganic Chemistry as defined by the Oxford Chemistry course, and preparedness to offer tutorials on the majority of 1st, 2nd and 3rd year topics; the ability to supervise graduate students; a willingness to undertake administration and pastoral responsibilities on behalf both of the Department of Chemistry and of Trinity College.

The Job Description and Person Specification for the post, including details of how to apply, can be obtained from the Department of Chemistry website (www.chem.ox.ac.uk) or by writing to Mrs Linda Webb, Personal Assistant to the Head of Inorganic Chemistry, at academic.appointments@chem.ox.ac.uk.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon (UK time) on Monday, 26 January 2015.

Interviews will be held over two days during the week of 16 Ė 20 March 2015. Queries about the application process should be sent to Mrs Linda Webb, Personal Assistant to the Head of Inorganic Chemistry, at academic.appointments@chem.ox.ac.uk.
