An introduction to the major areas of modern chemistry, including organic and biological chemistry; physical chemistry and chemical physics; and inorganic/materials chemistry. The first section of the course is an intensive study of the principles of structure and reactions of organic molecules, as well as an introduction to the importance of organic molecules in biological processes.
The next section introduces methods of structure determination, and the properties and uses of inorganic elements including novel materials and catalysts. Finally, the last section covers the physical chemical principles that underlie molecular structure, reactivity and energy. The laboratory provides an introduction to important chemical techniques as well as practical illustrations of lecture material. It consists of several experiments over the year and provides experience in physical chemistry, organic and inorganic chemical reactions.
A Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related field is required for Sessional Lecturer (Laboratory Coordinator). Experience in lecturing and/or coordinating laboratories in inorganic and physical chemistry at the university level is preferred. Please note: Undergraduate or graduate students and postdoctoral fellows of the University of Toronto are covered by the CUPE 3902 Unit 1 collective agreement rather than the Unit 3 collective agreement, and should not apply for positions posted under the Unit 3 collective agreement.
