Lectureship in Chemistry (3 posts) @ Kings college london
Department of Chemistry, School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences A7/CCC/631/11-SC 05-Oct-2011
King's is looking to appoint up to three lecturer posts to expand the range of chemistry research and teaching and to establish Chemistry as a distinct Department at King's.
Reflecting King's current research strengths in biomedical science, the research of the Department should initially be chemical biology, in the sense of using chemical approaches to elucidate molecular interactions that give rise to important biological mechanisms, and practical applications in the translation of research in clinical medicine and biomedicine.
Chemical applications currently range from drug discovery and delivery to imaging science, and related materials science and nanotechnology.
Affiliated with the Department will be around 30 chemists already embedded within various research Divisions (www.kcl.ac.uk/nms/depts/chemistry), whose work exemplifies the range of opportunities available at King's.
The Department will also be launching a new 4 year undergraduate course, MSci Chemistry with Biomedicine, in Sept 2012, which will be led by the Department with the assistance of the wider chemical community at King's (www.kcl.ac.uk/prospectus/undergraduate/index/name/chemistry-with-biomedicine).
Lecturers will be expected to contribute to education (about 30% of their time overall) and establish and fund an internationally competitive research laboratory (about 70% of time).
These positions are offered on Grade 7, currently £37,990 - £45,336 plus £2,323 London Allowance.
Post duration Indefinite contract
Closing date: 05-oct-2011
