The Department now wishes to recruit two Lecturers (below the bar) in Chemistry to support its teaching and research mission. Candidates for this post will have a primary degree in chemistry and a doctoral degree (level 10NFQ) in chemistry or related discipline. Particular consideration will be given to candidates whose research complements one or more of the research themes within the Bernal Institute: biomaterials, process engineering, molecular/nanomaterials and composite materials), but candidates with a track record in all areas of chemistry are encouraged to apply. Ideally, candidates should have appropriate post-doctoral experience (academic or industrial) and a proven publication record commensurate with the post. Candidates should have the ability to lecture to students and be committed to teaching excellence. The successful candidate will be expected to complement the Department’s research objectives, work independently and develop a collaborative research program supported by external funding. The candidate will be expected to supervise projects and postgraduate research students.
The successful candidate will be required to contribute to the delivery and organisation of teaching, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and to develop a research programme which complements existing research themes within the Department and the Bernal Institute. The successful candidate will be expected to play an appropriate administrative within the Department. In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to avail of and establish collaborations in the research clusters of the Bernal Institute, with the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Technology Centre or with the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Cluster.
