Lecturer or Associate Professor in Soft Matter Physics

Are you an influential academic with a proven ability to carry out teaching and research in Soft Matter Physics in the area of liquid crystals? Do you have the ability to provide academic leadership, to carry out high quality research, and teaching in Physics? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

We are looking for a dedicated and passionate academic who brings research and teaching expertise in Soft Matter Physics and who contributes to academic leadership in their area. You will join the well-established Soft Matter Physics Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Leeds, promoting values of collegiality within the academic community.

You will have a PhD in a relevant discipline and experience of research in your field, including good publications in peer-reviewed journals, successful research grant applications, engagement with external collaborators, e.g. standards committees and industrial collaborators, and key presentations at international conferences. You will be an experimental physicist and have a track record of interdisciplinary collaboration with theoreticians, chemists and experimentalists. You will also have a track record of leading and delivering UG and PG modules in the field. As a Lecturer or Associate Professor in Physics, you will be an outstanding individual, who will join us in providing academic leadership for the field. You will have research expertise in areas complementary to those in the liquid crystals part of the Soft Matter Physics group, particularly in liquid crystal optics (www. smp.leeds.ac.uk). We welcome applications from candidates who can contribute to research and teaching in the broad area of sustainability.

The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences holds the Athena Swan Silver Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining, and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET). The School of Physics and Astronomy holds Juno Practitioner status from the Institute of Physics and offers a number of family-friendly employment practices that are designed to enable a good work-life balance.
