The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the Faculty of Science of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, has an opening for a position as FULL PROFESSOR, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, or ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (tenure track) in PHARMACEUTICAL ANALYSIS.
The University of Geneva is a higher education and research institution with more than 17000 students from 150 countries studying in the heart of the city in a dynamic and international environment.
The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences is part of the Faculty of Science. It has been among the best Schools of Pharmacy in the world for several years.
Analytical Sciences have contributed to the reputation of the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences as a center of excellence in pharmaceutical research and this opening for a new chair of “Pharmaceutical Analysis” confirms and underlines the importance of this discipline. This will be a full-time appointment (i.e.100 %). Duties will include teaching at all levels and research activities. The successful candidate is expected to raise external research funding and will have to fulfill management and organizational duties within the institution. The selected candidate must contribute to the advancement of the Analytical Sciences related to new therapeutic entities and the development of innovative methodologies to create a cutting-edge and internationally recognized research and education program in pharmaceutical analysis. The success of new complex therapeutics has created new challenges in pharmaceutical analysis. As a result, innovative techniques and methodologies must be found to meet demands concerning the number of components that must be separated in complex or minute matrices. Our existing state-of-the-art equipment will fully facilitate this research activity. Research into analytical methodology to measure pharmaceuticals at the patient point-of-care (e.g. patient bedside, patient’s home, at the pharmacy) or more specific issues such as single-cell analysis approaches would also be of great interest to the School.
Ph.D. degree or equivalent. The candidate must have a strong background in the theory and practice of analytical separation science (incl. MS) and/or in the field of spectroscopic/imaging analysis. The candidate must be able to collaborate with a large variety of research groups, both within and outside analytical chemistry. The candidate should have an international reputation in his/her field, a strong publication record, and demonstrate the ability to obtain extramural funding from national and/or international bodies. The candidate must be fluent in English and must be keen on learning the French language within two years.
Starting date: September 2023
