We are pleased to bring to your attention a unique career opportunity for individuals at your institution who recently earned the Ph.D. or are due to complete this degree in fall 2016. The University of North Carolina Asheville, the designated undergraduate public liberal arts institution of the UNC system, seeks applicants for a position as a Research and Teaching Fellow in our department of chemistry. This post-doctoral position is part of a new initiative at UNC-Asheville, the GlaxoSmithKline Scholars Program, funded by the North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation. This program is an excellent career development opportunity for Ph.D. chemists who are specifically interested in teaching and research careers at primarily undergraduate institutions. A central aim of the Scholars Program is to provide academic training within our liberal arts university setting to aspiring faculty members. The individual in this position will receive mentoring and feedback from a program faculty member in teaching lectures and lab sections and guiding undergraduate researchers in synthetic organic chemistry and/or natural product isolation. We hope to attract applicants with enthusiasm for undergraduate education and the capability of working with a multidisciplinary team of faculty and undergraduates to further its research goals. This position is for 12 months with a second year as a renewal option, and has salary and benefits highly competitive for an entry-level post-doctoral position.
The position announcement is found at https://jobs.unca.edu/postings/2360 and includes a list of required documents and additional details. We greatly appreciate your help in directing qualified and interested applicants to this application site. We will begin review of applications in early November and the position will remain open until filled.
The Natural Products Research Group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cape Town (UCT) is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PDRF) to join the research group. The Fellow will be working primarily on a UK Royal Society funded project in microbial natural products for tuberculosis drug discovery.
We are seeking for a candidate with extensive experience in natural products purification and isolation (HPLC and other chromatography techniques) and structure elucidation (NMR and MS data acquisition and interpretation). Experience in molecular biology and microbiology (culturing microorganisms, PCR, etc) will be considered an advantage. Responsibilities will include performing research, writing research publications and grants, and training students.
The Fellowship begins in January 2017 for an initial period of one year, and is renewable depending on satisfactory academic progress. The Fellowship will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience, with a base that is at the top end of the pay scale for PDRFs in South Africa and more than sufficient to live comfortably in Cape Town.
Interested individuals should contact Dr Sunassee by email (email@example.com), with a copy of their CV or résumé.
