The University of Groningen is looking for an early-career academic who is interested to start a tenure track that focuses on education and who can strengthen their teaching and research in the field of sustainable drug development. The discipline of sustainable drug development aims to train students in drug development based on Green Chemistry principles. This is needed because ageing of the population brings about increased drug use, which stresses the eco-system and may adversely impact our long-term health, e.g. due to resistance to antibiotics. The candidate will incorporate Green Chemistry elements into relevant Bachelor and Master courses, enabling pharmacy students to gain knowledge not only about conventional chemical reactions, drug design and production, but also on how to modify these to reduce their eco-toxicity and enhance sustainability. The candidate’s research may support current research lines in the area of Green Chemistry within the research group Chemical and Pharmaceutical Biology (GRIP) and may lead to an independent research line focusing on, for instance, computational chemistry and engineering, artificial intelligence in drug discovery or engineering, or green and sustainable pharmaceutical production.
