DTU Chemistry at the Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a position as Associate Professor in Inorganic Chemistry with emphasis on catalysis and inorganic materials science.

DTU Chemistry is a department with the overall mission of contributing to research, innovation, and education within the following scientific areas: Advanced and Applied Chemistry with strong activities in Organic, Inorganic, and Physical Chemistry.

The Department has 150 employees including presently 25 faculty members. The successful candidate will join the section for Organic and Inorganic Chemistry and is expected to interact closely with the other faculty members in the Department.

Responsibilities and qualifications
The new faculty must actively take part in the promotion, development and improvement of research and education within experimental Inorganic Chemistry with emphasis on catalysis and inorganic materials science.

The department has a strong track record in these areas and the new faculty will have access to excellent facilities to support a strong research program. 
The applicant should be able to document a strong potential and profile for research and education.

You are expected to have solid teaching experience and a wish to participate in teaching practical and theoretical inorganic chemistry at all levels. A significant part of the courses at the Department is taught to B.Sc. students and most of these courses are given in Danish. The candidate is therefore required to be able to teach in Danish no later than 3 years after being employed. Furthermore, supervision of postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduate students is expected as well as contribution to continuing education and dissemination of research results at all levels.

The successful candidate is expected to conduct innovative research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, externally funded research program in inorganic chemistry.

The Associate Professor should contribute to the development of the above-mentioned research areas at DTU Chemistry in fruitful collaboration with relevant staff at the department and from other departments at DTU.It is especially important that the Associate professor engages in the increasing industrial collaboration at DTU Chemistry.

Significant achievements will be expected within research/innovation, and specifically:

  • Documented and successful teaching and dissemination experience from previous academic career.
  • Documented experience with innovation.

Requirements for the position are:

  • A strong background in, and an innovative approach to, experimental inorganic chemistry relevant for fundamental understanding as well as the application potential of new insight.
  • Preferably a track record of academic cross-disciplinary collaboration.
  • Interest for application-oriented research and industrial collaboration.
  • Focus on the working environment and safety as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Candidates also must have a record of excellence in research as demonstrated by publications in top ranked and field relevant academic journals, patents, and presentations at significant conferences.

As formal qualification you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) as well as academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding an assistant professorship and documented didactic/pedagogic training.

You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria:

  • Experience and quality of teaching

DTU Chemistry is among the internationally leading departments of chemistry within several topics under the main areas: physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and organic chemistry.
The department is responsible for teaching at the BSc, MSc as well as PhD level. The teaching activities are closely related to the active research projects of the department. The research is advanced chemistry ranging from relatively fundamental to almost applied research within chemistry with a polytechnic approach. The purpose is to explore the methods and concepts of modern chemistry which also relate to neighboring fields such as nanotechnology, physics, and biochemistry. Many research projects are aimed at applications within areas such as energy, pharmaceuticals, catalysis, and materials. The research is often performed in close collaboration with Danish and international industry or universities. The Department has approximately 140 employees.
