King’s College London Chemistry is seeking an experienced administrator to provide high quality administrative support to academic staff in the grant seeking and grant management aspects of their roles.

About the Department of Chemistry

King’s vision is to firmly establish a contemporary department, which realises the transformative power of Chemistry in interdisciplinary research.

We believe that realising the profound impact chemical sciences has across discipline interfaces is central to the scientific advances that are needed to solve some of the most pressing problems of the 21st century in medicine, energy, and the environment. This can be achieved by exploring innovations in Chemical Biology, Biomaterials Science, Bioelectricity, Synthetic Biology and Nanomedicine and key partnerships including the Francis Crick Institute and industry.

We are passionate about chemical education and offer modern BSc and MSci degree programmes in Chemistry, and our flagship programme, Chemistry with Biomedicine. All programmes offer the opportunity to undertake a Year’s Professional Placement

We believe an inclusive workplace delivers greater impact and key part of our ethos is equality, with a dynamic and fulfilling culture for all, and an emphasis on tackling the under-representation of women in science.

If you are excited by the opportunities we offer, we would like to hear from you. You can find out more about us at:
