The Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry of the Faculty of Science at the University of Geneva seeks outstanding candidates for tenure track assistant professor in analytical chemistry to further strengthen its vibrant scientific environment.

All areas of analytical chemistry will be considered although research that complements the existing themes of aquatic sensors, bioanalytical mass spectrometry, bioelectrocatalysis and coordination and metallosupramolecular chemistry within the Department would be preferred.

The successful candidate will lead a visible and independent research group at an internationally competitive level that will be externally funded and teach at the BSc and MSc level.

Founded in 1559 by Jean Calvin, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is dedicated to thinking, teaching, dialogue and research. With 16’000 students of more than 140 different nationalities, it is Switzerland’s second largest university. UNIGE offers more than 280 types of degrees and more than 250 Continuing Education programmes covering an extremely wide variety of fields: exact sciences, medicine and humanities. Its domains of excellence in research include life sciences (molecular biology, bio-informatics), physics of elementary particles, and astrophysics. UNIGE is also host and co-host to six National Centres of Competence in Research: Frontiers in Genetics, Materials with Novel Electronic Properties (MaNEP), Chemical Biology, Affective Sciences, Synaptic Bases of Mental Diseases and LIVES-Overcoming vulnerabilities in a life course perspective. Just like the city of Geneva itself, the university enjoys a strong international reputation, both for the quality of its research (it ranks among the top institutions among the League of European Research Universities) and the excellence of its education. This acclaim has been won in part due to its strong ties to many national and international Geneva-based organizations, such as the World Health Organization, the International Telecommunications Union, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
