The Bioanalytical Research Group (Bioanalytical Unit) at the Department of Forensic Medicine is seeking an outstanding scientist for a new full-time position as assistant professor (four year period) or associate professor (five year period). The position is vacant as soon as possible or by agreement. After the temporary period of employment, there is a possibility of subsequent permanent employment as associate professor. The candidate is expected to establish his/her own research group within bioanalytical chemistry as applied to human disease (medicinal chemistry/ toxicology) and/or forensically relevant questions.
The research group will be an integrated part of the Bioanalytical Unit, which is a research and development entity at the department’s Section for Forensic Chemistry. The department houses top-facilities and research environment for conducting both quantitative as well as qualitative analysis of small molecules i.e. endogenous or drugs/ medicinal compounds in biological matrices. Moreover, labs are available for conducting cell and molecular biology based experiments. Currently, the Bioanalytical Unit is active within drug and metabolite quantification and profiling (metabolomics), drug and metabolite toxicology, chemo-proteomics and small molecule screening mostly applied to forensically or human disease/aging related research questions.

The candidate should be an ambitious researcher with original and long-term research visions within bioanalytical chemistry, targeting problems of human disease and/or unmet needs within forensic science. It would be desirable that the candidate could support or further develop the expertise already available at the department. The candidate is expected to raise additional funding from external sources (EU, national public and private funding agencies, industrial collaborations), but will receive an attractive start-package and have access to excellent research facilities and infrastructure for conducting both LC-MS/MS and LC-qTOFMS analysis as well as laboratories for supporting molecular biology studies.
Candidates must hold the following qualifications:
• Appointment as assistant professor requires a PhD degree or equivalent as well as academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding a position as researcher or postdoc. Appointment as an associate professor furthermore requires research and teaching qualifications at such level as can be attained following a satisfactory period of appointment as an assistant professor, but which could also be achieved otherwise. It is assumed that applicants for the associate professorship have received supervision and training in university education and have received a positive written assessment of their teaching qualifications
• Strong background and track record within the field of research
• Demonstrated ability to publish in major research journals and to disseminate research at conferences
• Demonstrated ability to raise funding for research purposes
• International experience (e.g. post graduate stays at well reputed research institutions)
• Capable of working in an interdisciplinary environment
• Be fluent in written and spoken English
