UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY
Assistant Professor, Tenure Track

The Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia (www.chem.ubc.ca) is seeking outstanding new investigators for three full time tenure-track faculty positions, at the rank of Assistant Professor at its Vancouver campus. With over 60 faculty, over 240 graduate students and 60 dedicated staff members, UBC Chemistry is one of the world’s top Departments, boasting outstanding research infrastructure, well-equipped shops and services and an unparalleled location on Canada’s beautiful west coast.

We are seeking candidates of exceptional scientific talent who have demonstrated success in their field for three positions:

(1) Biological Chemistry
(2) Inorganic Chemistry
(3) Machine Learning in Chemistry

The positions require a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry or a related discipline and an outstanding research track record. Relevant postdoctoral experience is highly desirable. The successful candidate will develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program. As a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry, the successful applicant will be expected to effectively supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain external funding, teach undergraduate and graduate Chemistry courses, and actively participate in departmental activities. Leading candidates will complement and strengthen the Department and University’s expertise in research and education.

The successful candidate will be eligible to hold an appointment at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level but a higher rank may be considered for applicants with exceptional qualifications and experience.

The anticipated start date is July 1, 2020.
