Are you a chemist and do you want to teach students the ‘tricks of the trade’ of synthetic chemistry? As a Supervisor, you ensure a safe and agreeable working environment in our education labs, give feedback to students and contribute to the development and improvement of experiments for the various lab courses.

We are looking for a chemist who enjoys transferring synthetic knowledge and skills to students. During the year, you will be the direct supervisor of groups of students at one of our teaching labs. You will ensure a safe and agreeable working environment for these students and teach them the 'tricks of the trade' of synthetic chemistry. You will also give positive feedback on the students' preparatory work, skills and reporting and grade them on these aspects. Lastly, you will contribute to the development, improvement and testing of synthetic experiments for various lab courses. 

During periods in which no regular lab courses are taught (exam periods, student holidays) you will contribute to other departmental activities: routine maintenance of equipment, ordering equipment and chemicals, testing and improving experiments, and facilitating 'afternoon labs' for high-school students. You will be expected to be assertive and proactive in your approach to students and you should be able to combine clarity with a friendly and personal attitude.
