Join the Department of Chemistry as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Reader in our thriving Organic Chemistry section.
In our department we offer an exceptional environment for research, teaching and learning and we wish to support you to reach your potential for internationally leading research, in the broad field of sustainable chemical technologies and/or healthcare, including chemical biology. We would also be interested to hear from you if your research interests lie in “organic chemistry” in the widest sense.
About the role
If you have experience interacting with and complementing existing research within a department this would be advantageous.
You should hold a PhD and be able to demonstrate the potential to develop an internationally leading research programme, to acquire significant funding from UK and international sources, and to produce high quality publications.
Application Requirements & Selection Process:
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Professor Andrew Burrows, Head of Department ([email protected]), Dr Simon Lewis, Head of Organic Chemistry ([email protected]) or Dr Gan Shermer, Director of Teaching ([email protected]), however, please submit your application via the University website.
Please provide both research and teaching statements of up to two pages for each in addition to a full CV and a statement of commitment to EDI.
Your research statement needs to outline your plans and intentions for research activity and grant capture over the coming five years. This document will be treated in the strictest confidence and with full respect for ownership. The teaching vision should outline your areas of teaching expertise and a range of potential teaching subjects as well as course development interests. These are mandatory components of the selection process, without which we will be unable to progress your application.
What we can offer you:
We are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment for all staff, including mentorship and flexible working arrangements. The Department and the University both currently hold Athena SWAN Silver awards, and we are working to further improve equality, diversity and inclusion. If you would like to discuss any EDI issues or other aspects of the working environment with a member of staff who is not involved in the recruitment process, please contact Professor Petra Cameron ([email protected]).
