After postdoctoral research with Professors Larry Que and David Bocian, he took up a faculty position at UiT – The Arctic University of Norway in 1996, where he is now professor of chemistry. He has been a Senior Fellow of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (1997-2004), a co-PI at the Center for Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (2007-2017, a Center of Excellence of the Research Council of Norway), and on several occasions a Visiting Professor at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Dr. Ghosh has contributed to many areas of porphyrin-related research and most recently has developed the area of 5d metallocorroles. He has served on several editorial boards, including those of the Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, and Journal of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines. An avid teacher and communicator, he edited the popular science book Letters to a Young Chemist (Wiley, 2011) and (with Steffen Berg) wrote the PROSE-award–winning textbook Arrow Pushing in Inorganic Chemistry: A Logical Approach to the Chemistry of the Main Group Elements (Wiley, 2014).
