Associate Professorships in the Department of Chemistry

We are delighted to be recruiting to a number of Associate Professorships in the Department of Chemistry: 

Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry in association with Lady Margaret Hall
Closing Date: 21 January 2022

Associate Professor in Inorganic Chemistry in association with St John’s College
Closing Date: 31 January 2022

Associate Professor in Inorganic Chemistry in association with Magdalen College
Closing Date: 31 January 2022

Associate Professors at the University of Oxford have a joint appointment, i.e. both a University contract and a formal association with one of Oxford's colleges.  Postholders have both teaching and research responsibilities and are expected to contribute fully to the academic life and governance of both the Department and the college.

The teaching time is split between duties for the Department and the College as follows:

•    Department - undergraduate lectures for our MChem degree, teaching and supervision for our graduate programmes, assessment etc.
•    College - tutorial (very small group) teaching and associated pastoral and administrative duties.

The University of Oxford does not have an Assistant Professor grade and candidates for the Associate Professorships can be at early, mid or more senior career stages.  Candidates who are at a more senior career stage on joining Oxford may be conferred the title of Professor by the University on appointment.

The Department will provide postholders with laboratory and write-up space for their research group, a personal office, and access to extensive shared research facilities.  The University contract of employment offers a range of employee benefits including generous parental leave schemes.  The associated college will provide office and teaching space and benefits including generous allowances and dining rights.

Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. The Department has held an Athena SWAN Silver Award since September 2015 in recognition of its commitment to addressing gender inequalities, to tackling the unequal representation of women in science, and to improving career progression for female academics. We have a number of family-friendly policies, such as the right to apply for flexible working, and support for staff returning from periods of extended absence. We are committed to ensuring an inclusive interview process and will reimburse up to £250 towards any additional care costs (for a dependent child or adult) incurred as a result of attending an interview for this position. 

The job descriptions for each post provide further details including the teaching and research focus and the contact for any queries.
