In addition, the candidate is expected to develop relationships and partnerships externally/internationally to foster collaboration and generate income. Therefore the person must have a flexible approach to work, being willing and able to travel nationally and internationally. She / he should be self-motivated, an effective communicator and able to work as an individual and as a member of a team. Although this is primarily a research-focused role, the candidate will also be involved in teaching and in the supervision of students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
