Assistant/Associate Professor in Chemistry
University of Lethbridge, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry



Position Details

The University of Lethbridge is seeking applicants for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Organofluorine Chemistry within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The University of Lethbridge has strategically targeted fluorine chemistry as an area of strength by establishing the Canadian Centre for Research in Advanced Fluorine Technologies (C-CRAFT) and now seeks an exceptional researcher able to expand this strength. While applicants with expertise in organofluorine chemistry are highly encouraged, we invite all fluorine chemists who would complement the existing expertise in fluorine chemistry within C-CRAFT to apply.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has 23 members (14 research-active faculty and 9 instructors). C-CRAFT is a collaborative and highly collegial team of six independent researchers and their trainees who have fluorine chemistry as their entire or partial focus. The current complement has expertise in inorganic, organometallic and computational chemistry, electrochemistry and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The University has superb characterization facilities, with excellent access to a suite of NMR and EPR spectrometers and X-ray diffraction equipment (Rigaku Supernova Cu/Mo dual source X-ray diffractometer and Miniflex powder XRD). The University of Lethbridge Magnetic Resonance Facility includes: 300 (liquid), 500 (solids) and 700 (liquids and solids) MHz Bruker spectrometers and a Bruker EMX-Plus X-band EPRspectrometer (with N2 and He(l) cooling). The NMR spectrometers in the facility have been optimized for work with 19F, with probes capable of simultaneous 1H and 19F spectroscopy. The Department has just moved into a new state-of-the-art 38,500-m2 Science and Academic Building designed to foster innovative research and teaching initiatives in the sciences ( Specifically, the facilities and laboratory spaces foster collaborations within and between disciplines. The successful candidate will benefit from laboratory and office spaces reserved for this Tier 2 CRC position. Descriptions of the Department and the Facilities can be found at:

Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars, and the successful candidate must meet the requirements for the position of Tier 2 Chair as defined by the CRC program ( The successful candidate will be nominated for a Tier 2 CRC, and, upon successful nomination, will be hired at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications and experience. The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience in chemistry. The proposed chair will be expected to establish an innovative, independently funded, and internationally competitive research program in any area of fluorine chemistry that involves both undergraduate and graduate researchers and to participate in the University’s Canadian Centre for Research in Advanced Fluorine Technologies (C-CRAFT). C-CRAFT members combine synthetic, analytic and computational expertise in fluorine chemistry, rendering Lethbridge, Alberta a hub for fluorine chemistry in Canada. With many national and international collaborators, C-CRAFT’s influence reaches beyond Alberta.
