Together, Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences form a higher education community that places faith in people and scientific knowledge. Leading experts in the fields of technology, health and society are changing the world at Finland’s second largest multidisciplinary higher education institution. www.tuni.fi/en
Be it energy harvesting and storage, sustainable use of resources, or fight against diseases, chemistry is central to solving many of present-day global challenges. Our vision at Tampere University is that disruptive solutions to many global problems rely on the development of new molecules and materials and on in-depth understanding of their behaviour. Around these themes, the University has decided to further strengthen its chemistry activities through new tenure track appointments.
We invite applications for 1-2 tenure-track positions within the broad field dealing with Chemistry of Functional Molecular Materials. While we are broadly interested in excellent candidates who can complement our present activities, we will give special attention to candidates who have strong expertise in some of the following fields:
We are looking for candidates who have excellent future potential at their respective career stage and who can establish independent world-class research activities at Tampere University.
If successful, you will be placed at the level of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Full Professor, based on your experience and expertise. While in the early stages of your career (especially in Assistant Professor position) the focus is on research, in time you will be expected to contribute increasingly to teaching, curriculum development and graduate and post-graduate student supervision.
The positions will be placed in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, in the Chemistry and Advanced Materials (CAM) community. Our research strategy is to use chemical approaches for the design and fabrication of functional compounds and materials. We also offer a broad and high-level chemistry education required for successful career development in research and industry.
We presently have five research teams at CAM. Synthetic Chemistry team develops bioactive organic substances, functional photoactive compounds and new synthesis methods. Photonic Compounds and Nanomaterials team works on the design, modelling, and characterisation of novel photoactive structures which for example can be used by Hybrid Solar Cells team in their work towards eco-friendly, low-cost, and stable photovoltaics. Smart Photonic Materials team develops functional and stimuli-responsive systems for applications in soft-matter photonics, soft robotics and biomaterials science. Supramolecular Chemistry of Bio- and Nanomaterials team develops tools to track and analyze interactions of drug carriers and cells and tailored materials for pharmaceutical applications.
You should have a doctoral degree and experience on scientific or technological research in a relevant field.
We are inviting you to be a part of a vibrant, active and truly international research community and a research environment with top-class laboratories and research instruments. This area enjoys strong support from the University level. The multidisciplinary research environment offers opportunities to develop interdisciplinary research expertise via collaboration e.g. in different fields of engineering and natural sciences.
Initial appointment as Assistant Professor / Associate Professor is for five years and, subject to successful performance, you will become a tenured member of faculty staff at the end of the first five-year period. You will be supported throughout the five-year period to ease transition to faculty positions. Full professors will hold a permanent appointment from the outset. The expected start date will be individually negotiated with the candidates and a trial period of six months applies to all our new employees.
We also offer assistance for setting up a research group. The extent and conditions of the funding will be discussed with the candidates during the recruitment process.
Salaries are based on the job demands and employees’ personal performance in accordance with the Finnish University Salary System. A typical starting salary for an Assistant Professor is approximately 4000 - 4200 EUR/month, for an Associate Professor approximately 4600 - 4900 EUR/month and for a Full Professor 5600 – 5800 EUR/month. Higher salaries may be agreed dependent upon experience and/or performance.
We offer a wide range of staff benefits, such as occupational health care, flexible working hours, excellent sports facilities on campus and several restaurants and cafés on campus with staff discounts. Please read more about working at Tampere University.
Finland provides one of the most advanced and comprehensive social security in the world. It includes for example sickness benefits, various family benefits and a comprehensive healthcare system. For more information on Finland, please check InfoFinland and This is Finland.
Please submit your application through our online recruitment system (link below). The closing date for applications is Wednesday 20 November 2019 (at 23.59 EET / 21.59 UTC).
Please write your application and all accompanying documents in English and attach them in PDF format. Applications should include the following documents:
Candidates may be invited for a video interview during the first stage of the recruitment process. The most qualified candidates will be invited to Tampere University for an interview and may undergo an aptitude assessment. They will also undergo a review by external experts and may be required to give a demonstration of their teaching skills.
