While at the University of Jordan, Mubarak served as the Chairman of the Department of Chemistry between September 2008 and December 2009 and as the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Science since December 6, 2009. He has also been appointed as an Adjunct Professor of chemistry at the Indiana University in 2009. He is the author and coauthor of more than 100 research papers and has supervised and cosupervised 35 theses and dissertations. Mubarak’s research program is broadly based on synthetic organic chemistry, especially the synthesis of compounds with expected biological activity. In addition, his work involves synthesis and sorption properties of chelating polymers. Moreover, Mubarak also does collaborative work with the Indiana University in the field of organic electrochemistry which basically involves electroreduction and electrooxidation of organic compounds using various electrodes in nonaqueous solvents.
