Research in this group includes synthesis, self-assembling materials, stimuli-responsive systems, and molecular and macromolecular bio-active systems. Preference will be given to candidates whose chemical research interests relate to biology (e.g. chemical biology, biomaterials, drug synthesis, controlled delivery, anti-microbial agents) to build upon existing collaborative strengths between the School of Chemistry and Forensic Science and the School of Biosciences (https: // www. kent.ac.uk/biosciences).

In addition to previous teaching experience, the post holder should have a clearly defined research agenda with a track record or clear potential to publish in peer-reviewed journals and leading or supporting research projects.
