Looking to make waves?

In the 2014 REF, Swansea University made the biggest jump of any of the research-intensive universities, from 52nd in the UK rankings to 26th. With the opening of our new science and innovation Bay Campus in September 2015, a £450 million investment and one of the largest knowledge economy projects in Europe, we are gearing up for even greater things to come.

Founded by industry in 1920 to serve the needs of industry and society, Swansea University remains true to this vision, with an impressive record for business co-location and an outstanding record on research impact.

The University delivers world leading research in Science and Engineering, Medicine, Arts and Humanities and Social Science. To maintain its strong upward trajectory, Swansea University is making over 30 key appointments including a College Head, Chairs, Associate Professorships, and lecturers. We seek talented and ambitious individuals with the resilience to embrace risk and challenge, and to work creatively across disciplinary boundaries.
