Tenure-Track or Tenured Faculty Positions at the Department of Chemistry, KAIST 2020-03-24

              Tenure-Track or Tenured Faculty Positions at the Department of Chemistry, KAIST

The Department of Chemistry at KAIST (https://chem.kaist.ac.kr) invites applications for tenure-track or tenured positions at all professor levels beginning in the spring of 2021. We seek outstanding candidates in all areas of chemical science, excluding computational chemistry, but are particularly interested in applicants with a research focus in experimental physical chemistry (integrated with materials/nano/bio), organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Exceptional candidates with interests in other areas, including multidisciplinary approaches and new emerging subdisciplines are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates must have a doctorate in chemistry or a related science, and some postdoctoral experience is preferred. Candidates will be expected to establish a creative, vigorous, and independent research program and excel in teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels. The Chemistry Department at KAIST places a priority on teamwork, communication, and collaboration among its faculty.

Application process

1.     Submit the following application materials via e-mail (hee-seung_lee@kaist.ac.kr) by May 22, 2020.
