Inorganic Chemistry, Tenure-track Assistant Professor of Chemistry and
Nanotechnology, Tenure-track Assistant Professor of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry in the Faculty of Science at the University of Waterloo invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions, in Inorganic Chemistry and in Nanotechnology, respectively. Exceptional candidates at a more senior level may also be considered.
Inorganic Chemistry: Applicants should have outstanding training and demonstrated excellence in inorganic chemistry, with research interests that complement existing departmental strengths in inorganic functional materials, electrochemistry and bioinorganic chemistry. The successful candidate is expected to establish a strong independent research group and be able to develop interdisciplinary collaborations with other researchers in the Department of Chemistry, the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) and other departments and centres at Waterloo. Successful
candidates will be able to provide evidence of potential for high-quality teaching in inorganic chemistry at all levels. Postdoctoral experience, in addition to a Ph.D. degree in any area of inorganic or materials chemistry, is essential.
Nanotechnology: Applicants should have outstanding training and demonstrated excellence in areas related to nanotechnology, especially nanoscience, that complement existing strengths, ranging from computational studies and fundamental properties of materials to novel applications and devices. The successful candidate is expected to establish a strong independent research group and be able to develop interdisciplinary collaborations with other researchers in the Department of Chemistry, the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) and other departments and centres at Waterloo. Successful candidates will also have established outstanding teaching records or will be able to provide evidence of potential for high-quality teaching in nanotechnology at all levels. Postdoctoral experience, in addition to a Ph.D. degree in any area of chemistry or related fields, is essential.
The salary range of these positions at the Assistant Professor rank is $95,000 to $120,000 for 12 months. Negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates. Anticipated starting date for these positions is September 1, 2016.
The University of Waterloo has an excellent reputation in both Inorganic Chemistry and Nanotechnology. It offers outstanding research and teaching environments, including unique on-campus facilities for materials characterization and device fabrication (http://uwaterloo.ca/institute-nanotechnology/research-waterloo-institutenanotechnology/facilities-equipment), as well as access to machining and electronics shops, and instrumentation and computation facilities. The Department is in close proximity to the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy (http://ccem.mcmaster.ca). Nanotechnology academic programs at Waterloo, both undergraduate and graduate, are unique collaborative efforts that draw on academic departments from across the Faculties of Science and Engineering, uniting a variety of disciplines in a common educational and research initiative.
Waterloo is a top destination to launch a successful academic career, providing an innovative intellectual property policy, an option for early sabbatical leaves and a competitive parental leave policy – learn more about what Waterloo offers at
