The University of Lincoln is an ambitious institution with high aspirations

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.
