The University of Lincoln is an ambitious institution with high aspirations and a rapidly improving profile that seeks to be a leading UK University. Its strategy is to combine outstanding research with research-engaged teaching and learning, and practice useful to the wider community.

The School of Sport and Exercise Science was established in 2006 and now delivers highly successful undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and has a small but thriving postgraduate research community. Key priorities within the School are teaching and research. The School provides an excellent teaching environment that is facilitated by a ‘state of the art' Human Performance Centre, a dedicated facility for applied sport and exercise science teaching and research, which includes Physiology, Psychology and Biomechanics laboratories, and dedicated Strength and Conditioning and Sports Therapy suites. The School also has a Motion Capture Hub that has a focus of connecting with commercial partners and businesses.

This appointment is primarily to take a leadership role in the research of the School. This would take the form of supporting and mentoring academic staff to produce high quality research with impact, encouraging the increase of grant bidding activity within the School and support colleagues in the development of Impact Case Studies for the next REF. We are not specifying the subject discipline of the professorial position, but the appointed person will align with research that is currently being conducted within the School and will provide academic leadership through an active contribution to their discipline. The appointed person will have an established and sustained a profile as an expert within their field, making an outstanding impact in a significant area in research that maintains, enhances, and improves the University's national and international reputation in their academic field.

Professors are involved in University service beyond the School and College and will make a major contribution to the work of the University.
