|Lecturer in Atmospheric Chemistry at RMIT (Melbourne, Australia) - Deadline: 9 April 2017
RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Our mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students, getting them ready for life and work.
Situated within the College of Science, Engineering and Health, the School of Science provides over 45 bachelor and postgraduate programs, and undertakes world class research across the disciplines of physical sciences, mathematical sciences and computer science.
One of RMIT's top-performing research schools, we deliver research that addresses the 'real life questions' essential to Australia's innovation agenda. Our high-quality teaching programs inspire students to pursue careers in a range of industries including health, materials technology, food, geospatial and surveying, environmental analysis, banking and commerce, as well as computing and IT roles and research and development across a wide range of areas.
The School has staff, students and facilities on both the City and Bundoora campuses, has 300 staff, 327 higher degree research students, 3347 coursework students and an annual budget of $120 million.
The Role and Your Responsibilities
The Lecturer in Atmospheric Chemistry will contribute to the teaching and research activities in the area of Environmental Science. You will work collaboratively and collegially with fellow academics to make a significant contribution to research by establishing and maintaining memberships, links and partnerships with academic, industry and professional communities leading to publications, grants and contracts. As part of a team, you will be responsible for the development and delivery of innovative courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level for programs, and for delivery of quality field work exercises. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills together with knowledge of academic administration particularly in relation to student related issues are essential.
Skills & Experience Required
To be eligible to apply, candidates must have a PhD in environmental chemistry, or equivalent, and demonstrated expertise in the atmospheric chemistry of particulate materials. You will have a focus on the analytical science of their contamination by trace organic chemicals or metals and associated environmental and human health risks.
You will have demonstrated ability to teach into core courses of Environmental Science programs and the ability to prepare high quality curriculum and course materials at tertiary level for undergraduate and post-graduate programs. Furthermore, you will have a demonstrated ability to undertake independent research that will contribute to existing School research areas, as evidenced by a strong research track record in publications, development of new research initiatives, competitive research funding, and building industry links and/or international collaborations

|Post-doctoral Researcher at the The University of Helsinki
Reaction kinetics and oxidation chemistry - Deadline: 13 March.2017
The Department of Chemistry of The University of Helsinki invites applications for a tree-year fixed term: Postdoctoral researcher position starting earliest April 1st 2017. Starting date is negotiable. The position will be filled with a 4-month trial period.
The position is available in the reaction kinetics and oxidation chemistry -research group led by Academy Research Fellow Arkke Eskola. While the group has concentrated mainly on experimental research, current position is for a candidate with significant, proven expertise in computational reaction kinetics, especially in reactive potential energy surface calculations (using Gaussian, Molpro etc.) and in master equation simulations. Objective is close interaction between experimental and computational research in the group.
The research interests of the group focus on reaction kinetics and oxidation chemistry in gas-phase under low-temperature combustion and atmospheric conditions. The selected candidate is expected to carry out research on the following systems: low-temperature combustion (oxidation) of resonantly-stabilized radicals; unimolecular and bimolecular reactions of stabilized Criegee intermediates.
The candidate is expected to be creative and motivated with a PhD degree in chemistry, physics, or related fields. Proven expertise, by scientific articles, in computational reaction kinetics is required, while practical experience in experimental research is highly appreciated (but not required). Good English language (oral and written) skills are required.
For further inquiries regarding the position, please contact Academy Research Fellow Arkke Eskola (firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information on the research group and publications, see both helsinki.fi/kemia/fysikaalinen/index.html and tuhat.helsinki.fi/portal/en.
Application should include (1) CV with a list of publications, (2) contact details for two references, (3) a brief description of research experience (1 – 2 pages), and (4) a copy of PhD’s degree certificate.
Please submit your application using the University of Helsinki Recruitment System via the Apply link (rekry.helsinki.fi/start). Applicants who are employees of the University of Helsinki are requested to leave their application via the SAP HR portal. The deadline for applications is March 13th 2017.
