Lecturer in Nutritional Science

University of Birmingham - School of Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Sciences

Grade 8 - Starting salary is normally in the range £38,896 to £46,414. With potential progression once in post to £52,219 a year.

SportexR is a world-leader in exercise and nutrition research. Our research portfolio includes implementing community-based lifestyle interventions to reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes, nutritional intervention strategies to maintain and/ or improve musculoskeletal function in frail populations, the investigation of novel methods to enhance sporting performance, as well as mechanistic studies of the responsiveness of the human body to nutrition at a cellular and sub-cellular level. This is supported by dedicated research facilities that are second-to-none in the UK, if not globally in our field.

To compliment and continue our success in this area, we are looking to strategically recruit an individual with a strong academic background in Nutritional Science, with an interest in applying their expertise to physical activity/exercise contexts. In addition to supporting the School’s existing research, the provision of specific expertise in Nutritional Science will foster new interdisciplinary collaborations across the College and University (e.g., Psychology, Chemical Engineering, Medicine and Dentistry). It will also significantly strengthen undergraduate and postgraduate teaching offering through development of new modules/ programmes, such as public health nutrition, clinical nutrition and nutrition policy.

The post holder will contribute to capacity building in research and teaching within a field for which the School has a globally-recognised reputation, as well as support a highly research active and successful research income-generating Physiology Research and Teaching Group.
