The Department of Chemistry at Yale is seeking a PhD-level scientist to direct a newly formed and fully funded Catalysis and Separations Center. The Center will contain equipment and instrumentation to support research in synthetic chemistry at Yale, with an emphasis on homogeneous catalysis. The Director of the Center will be appointed as an Associate Research Scientist (or Postdoctoral Associate depending on prior experience) and will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of Center instrumentation and assisting student and postdoctoral researchers with performing experiments in the Center. They will also be responsible for the Center budget and charging user fees.
The successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent degree, likely in the fields of synthetic organic or inorganic chemistry, and research experience in homogeneous catalysis. They will be well versed in a range of analytical techniques for the identification and purification of organic compounds (e.g. HPLC, LCMS, GC) and be able to repair and maintain instrumentation. Familiarity with data analysis and coding is desired, but not required.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, a short statement (~300 words) describing their qualifications for the position, and arrange for three confidential letters of recommendation. Please submit all materials through http://apply.interfolio.com/110978. The review of applications will commence on the 15th of September 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
