Opening For Faculty position - Astana

 Nazarbayev University is seeking highly-qualified international faculty to join its rapidly growing Chemistry programs in the School of Science and Technology. Launched in 2011, the school tripled in size in 2012, and continues growing, with new undergraduate areas of chemistry and biological chemistry.

Nazarbayev University has partnered with some of the most recognized names in international higher education, working together to establish a unique English-language western-style educational experience. A rich network of international relations may enable a wide range of opportunities for collaboration in areas such as faculty and student exchange programs, joint curriculum development, and open-ended research and development activities.
 
The university is highly competitive, with its student body selected from the top high schools throughout the country. Entering students first participate in the renowned University College of London foundation year program, and thus enter the SST program with extensive orientation, language training, and academic preparation. The University is now preparing to recruit students internationally.
 
The NU campus is located in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, in the heart of the new and ultra-modern Left-Bank region of the city. Incoming faculty can expect western style and traditional cultural living experience similar to any midsize North American or European cosmopolitan city including a rich and vibrant atmosphere which includes excellent clubs and restaurants, theater, music, opera, dancing, art museums, modern or traditional bazaar shopping, professional and amateur sports, recreation, and much more.
 
The Department of Chemistry seeks applicants with a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry at the ranks of assistant and associate professor for fulltime positions. Excellence in research is essential, and a strong teaching record is mandatory. Nazarbayev University seeks strong candidates to complement our current and future research efforts who can work well in a team. Special consideration will be given to applicants with research interests in the above-cited areas.
