We are looking for a chemist who enjoys transferring synthetic knowledge and skills to students. During the year, you will be the direct supervisor of groups of students at one of our teaching labs. You will ensure a safe and agreeable working environment for these students and teach them the 'tricks of the trade' of synthetic chemistry. You will also give positive feedback on the students' preparatory work, skills and reporting and grade them on these aspects. Lastly, you will contribute to the development, improvement and testing of synthetic experiments for various lab courses.
During periods in which no regular lab courses are taught (exam periods, student holidays) you will contribute to other departmental activities: routine maintenance of equipment, ordering equipment and chemicals, testing and improving experiments, and facilitating 'afternoon labs' for high-school students. You will be expected to be assertive and proactive in your approach to students and you should be able to combine clarity with a friendly and personal attitude.
Fixed-term contract: 1 year.
Additional employment conditions
Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
The Faculty of Science undertakes scientific research and offers courses in the natural sciences. Education is organised in four education institutes. The Institute for Molecular Sciences is responsible for the study programmes in Chemistry, Molecular Life Sciences, and Science. Most of the courses are given in English. The Molecular Sciences teaching lab organisation is headed by the lab coordinator and organises and facilitates lab courses for students in the three study programmes mentioned above in close collaboration with staff from the research departments. In four lab courses, spread over three years, students learn to perform organic and organometallic syntheses. The level of complexity and difficulty of the experiments increases with each study year. We offer students thorough, complete and challenging training in synthetic chemistry and strongly value a personal approach.
