Vacancy ID #: FAC0000154
The Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (ESE) in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill wishes to recruit a Research Assistant Professor (non-tenure-track, fixed-term appointment, for four years) to conduct research, mentor students and participate in the academic programs of ESE. The position will involve collaboration with investigators from a variety of funded projects to provide chemicals that are not available commercially, both as the natural abundance compounds and isotopomers labeled with stable isotopes (13C and 15N), including but not limited to nucleobase/nucleoside and protein adducts of biologically active metabolites of low molecular weight polychlorinated hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Other anticipated chemical syntheses include highly oxygenated derivatives of low molecular weight unsaturated hydrocarbons and organosulfate and nitrate ester derivatives as standards for analysis of atmospheric transformation products. The faculty appointee will in addition assist in the training of graduate and undergraduate students working on projects requiring synthesis or structural determinations.
A PhD in organic or medicinal chemistry, with a minimum of three years post-doctoral/research associate experience in synthetic chemistry.
Qualification and Experience:
Experience encompassing synthesis of a broad range of compound classes is required. The applicant should be skilled in independent development of efficient synthetic schemes, and also highly familiar with interpretation of standard techniques for structural characterization, particularly mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance, including heteronuclear 2D spectra, demonstrated by a commensurate publication record. Operational experience with mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance instrumentation would be highly desirable.
Special Instructions to Applicants:
For consideration, please submit your application through http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/9165. Please submit a cover letter, detailed curriculum vitae including list of publications, and the names and contact information of at least three references. At least two of the suggested references must be from independent scholars who have not published with the applicant. Support for this position is contingent on extramural funds.
