Reader/Senior Lecturer in Chemistry @ Kings college london
King's College London is forming a new Dept of Chemistry within its School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (www.kcl.ac.uk/nms)
King's is looking to appoint a Reader/Senior Lecturer in Chemistry to take a leading role in establishing Chemistry as a distinct Department at King's.
The department will provide academic and teaching leadership for chemistry across King's, establishing at the College a reputation for excellence in Chemistry as an independent discipline within the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and across the health schools whose research and teaching fundamentally depend upon the subject.
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
The appointment is to be made on the Grade 8 salary scale, currently 46,696 to £54,133 plus £2,323 London Allowance.
Post duration Permanent
