Mander then returned to Australia in 1966 to join the academic fraternity as a Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of Adelaide.It did not take long till Mander was promoted to Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry in 1970 where he remained until 1975 when he relocated to the Australian National University Research School of Chemistry as a Senior Fellow where he has risen through the ranks to become one of Australia's leading Organic Chemistry professors. In 2004 the Australian Journal of Chemistry published a special issue for the occasion of Mander's 65th Birthday.Amongst his many scholarly activities, Mander contributed a chapter on 'Stereoselective Synthesis' to the classic text 'Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds' by Professors Ernest L.
