Sessional Instructor
Winter 2015

The Department of Chemistry has openings for a Sessional Instructor during the forthcoming Winter Session (2015) to teach Chemistry 481/MMS 805, subject to budgetary approval.

This course covers the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometry used in the determination of structures in Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. Major topics include the theory and use of NMR spectroscopy, in particular the use of 2D experiments and multi-nuclear NMR spectroscopy. Particular emphasis is placed on developing the students’ ability to interpret spectra and elucidate the structure of a molecule based on this evidence beyond the undergraduate level, as well as the role NMR has played as a structural tool in the pharmaceutical industry and academia.

MMS 805 course also has a practical component where the students are trained to acquire high quality NMR data needed for structural elucidation.

Successful applicants will have a minimum of a Master’s degree in a related area.  Preference will be given to qualified candidates with seniority on the UPEI Sessional Roster.
