The Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London is at an exciting time in its history. Already a world-leading Department, from mid-2018 we now occupy state-of-the art research facilities at Imperial’s new White City Campus following our move to the £170M Molecular Sciences Research Hub. This state-of-the-art facility allows for significant expansion of our research activities, bringing together work in Molecular Sciences across the College, and with external partners, to tackle global grand challenges.
As part of this expansion, applications are invited for six Lecturer/Senior Lecturer posts in Chemistry, commencing on 1 September 2021. Applications are welcomed from forward thinking and innovative individuals in any area of Chemistry.
At the heart of the Department is a culture of citizenship, inclusivity and collaboration and we encourage applicants to apply who are keen to help the Department to build on this positive environment.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
