You should have been awarded a PhD in chemistry, or a related area, or have submitted a PhD thesis prior to taking up your appointment. The research requires a strong background in catalysis and polymer chemistry. The research is also part of a larger collaboration with other universities and industry, as such strong communication, team-work and organisation skills will be essential. You will also be expected to manage your own academic research and administrative activities, and to coordinate work to meet specified deadlines.

The post will be based in the Chemistry Research Laboratory, Department of Chemistry, 12 Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TA.

The post is available from 1 September 2017, or as soon as possible thereafter.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 14 August 2017. Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.

The University of Oxford and the Department of Chemistry are Athena SWAN Silver award holders. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and ethnic minority candidates, who are under-represented in Chemistry research posts in Oxford.
