End of my teaching activity 2015

In the spring term 2015 I was teaching 1/3 of EFN610M, Inorganic Chemistry 4.
As far as I know this will be the end of my teaching activity at the University of Iceland, that I started in the fall semester 1973.

No Doctoral or Postdoctoral Possibilities

Please note that due to my retirement in early 2013, I am NOT ABLE to accept any applications for doctoral or postdoctoral positions. However, I still keep my office at the Science Institute and I work there at some further publications.
