Forensic Science is a key component of long-standing and successful STEM provision at the University of Lincoln. Since the inception of the School of Chemistry in 2014, supported by a £6.8m award from HEFCE's Catalyst Fund and strategic University investment in infrastructure, the Forensic Science programmes reside formally in the School.

The School builds on a tradition of applied sciences at Lincoln, and operates interdisciplinary research themes at the Chemical-Biology Interface (e.g. toxicology, pharmacology, pharmaceutical development) and Innovative Analytical Methods (including chemical and bioanalytical methods, forensic analysis, omic sciences) and Advanced Functional Materials (e.g. catalysis, sensors, energy capture and storage). Professional Practice in key areas such as forensic casework is a vital dimension for the Schools ambition to deliver research and training with impact for wider society.

The taught Forensic Science portfolio includes undergraduate Forensic Science and Forensic Chemistry and post-graduate Forensic Science and Forensic Toxicology degrees. An innovative undergraduate curriculum in undergraduate Forensic Science was re-validated recently and is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences. The programme is based on four key themes (Biological Sciences, Analytical Sciences, Crime Scene Science and Professional Practice) and the delivery team combines academic and professional practitioners.

We seek dynamic and enthusiastic scientists to help the development of Forensic Toxicology as a key theme at the University through experience in relevant research and/or professional practice. An ability to lead provision in one or more specialist arenas at the Chem-Bio interface (e.g. toxicology, drug analysis and mass spectrometry) alongside research and/or professional experience in bio/analytical science would be advantageous. A commitment to working within multidisciplinary teams and an enthusiasm for developing research-integrated teaching are strong aspects of the role.

We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups. The School of Chemistry is an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder; the University of Lincoln is an equal-opportunities employer, an Athena SWAN Bronze Institution and was rated Gold in the recent Teaching Excellence Framework.
