Queen Mary University of London is one of the world’s leading universities (in the top one per cent of universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education). We have an impressive reputation for academic excellence, reinforced by our membership of the Russell Group of leading UK universities, which helps us to attract some of the brightest minds to study, teach and research here.

We work across the humanities, social sciences, law, medicine and dentistry, and science and engineering. We are based in a creative and culturally diverse area of east London and are the only London University able to offer a completely integrated residential campus at our Mile End home.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the life of the department in a more general way, for instance by undertaking appropriate administrative duties.

The successful candidate would ideally be able to take up his or her appointment as soon as possible.
