Concordia University in Montréal, Québec invites applications for a tenure-track position in Nanomedicinal Chemistry.
Nanomedicinal Chemistry is a highly interdisciplinary subject area, which includes for example nanoparticles that act as biological mimics, nanofibers and polymeric nanoconstructs as biomaterials, sensors and laboratory diagnostics. Qualified candidates for the position in nanomedicine should have formal training from one of the following areas: chemistry, biological or pharmaceutical chemistry and/ormaterials science. The current in-house expertise ranges from material synthesis, surface functionalization, spectroscopic properties and end applications. The ideal candidate will complement and consolidate the recognition of Concordia’s expertise in this area. The candidate should be a nanomedicinal chemist who would employ novel technologies and interdisciplinary approaches towards the discovery of modern medicines and/or the development of novel nanomaterials with applications in drug detection and monitoring that have the potential to foster improved health outcomes.
Applicants must have a Ph.D., and relevant post-doctoral experience. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active research program and teach at both the graduate and undergraduate levels in any area of chemistry.
Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae with a full list of publications, copies of the candidate’s three most significant publications, a statement of teaching philosophy/interests, and a five to ten page outline of proposed research. Candidates must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to:
Dr. John A. Capobianco
Professor and Chair
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
7141 Sherbrooke Street West
Montréal, Québec, Canada, H4B 1R6
Subject to budgetary approval, we anticipate filling this position, normally at the rank of Assistant Professor, for August 1, 2015. Review of applications will begin on November 17, 2014 and will continue until the position has been filled.
