Faculty position in Chemistry of Biomolecular Systems

Updated: 24 days ago
Deadline: 01 Jun 2021

The Van ’t Hoff institute for Molecular Sciences invites applications for a MacGillavry -type faculty position in Biomolecular Chemistry, starting at the level of assistant or associate professor. The MacGillavry programme aims to increase the number of female scientific staff in the Faculty of Science. It offers a tenure-track position with the ultimate goal to a full professorship in a top European research university. You can only apply if you are a female applicant.

The new position is funded by the Connecting Science programme  of the UvA's Faculty of Science. A major recruitment campaign to attract top talent from all over the world to a large number of newly created faculty positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions

What are you going to do?

Chemistry of Biomolecular Systems is one of the three overarching research topics of our institute where chemists make and understand bioinspired, biological and prebiotic molecular systems and processes, e.g. using biocatalysts to make highly specific molecules, by developing the models to understand and predict biochemical processes, or by designing bioactive molecules and biomaterials.

For the current position we are looking for a molecular scientist in the broad field of Chemistry of Biomolecular Systems. Examples of fields that fit our institute include - but are not limited to - bio(-inspired) catalysis, biomaterial- and biomolecular design, computational, multiscale modeling, data science and AI approaches for biomolecular systems, biophysical chemistry and proteomics. Potential collaborations are foreseen with the Synthesis & Catalysis groups, and the Computational Chemistry groups at HIMS, as well as with the Life Science institute.
