comment Career Shift from Computational Chemistry to Experimental Chemistry
Go for it. If they've offered you the job, they have confidence in you. Anything you need to relearn, can be done so on the job. It will be easier the second time around.

comment Should one disclose his/her family information in an academic job interview?
I suspect the last paragraph is country-dependent. In Sweden, this is nonsense, I would say. Swedish society is more tolerant to child-rearing. Indeed, it is actually viewed upon favourably that you've taken 6 months off to look after children (even as a man).

This may actually depend upon the country one is interviewing in. Such questions may even be illegal in some countries, as it may lead to discrimination.

comment Is there an implied requirement to include citations?
It would be worth asking your instructor. In general for academic research papers, one does include citations, because original academic research builds upon existing knowledge.

Are you willing to narrow Europe down a little. It's a big country. In most places you will need to speak the language to get a faculty position, though this is changing.
