Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry or Biophysics - REQ171086

Loughborough University - Department of Chemistry

Closing Date 1 January 2018

The School of Science at Loughborough comprises Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Maths and the Maths Education Centre. As a School we work collaboratively, with research strengths spanning across the core fundamental sciences, as well as cross-cutting themes. The Department of Chemistry is part of the School of Science at Loughborough University. Chemistry currently comprises some 350 undergraduates, 50 postgraduate MSc students, 80 postgraduate research students and approximately 30 members of academic staff, as well as a range of dedicated technical and support staff. Our academic and research staff are nationally and internationally recognised as experts in their chosen fields and as such the majority of our research was rated as internationally excellent in the REF 2014. As a result, the Department is highly active in research and enterprise, with academic staff and research students engaged in many high profile, cutting edge research projects with strong foundation in fundamental and applied physical and biological sciences. The University has recently established a Natural Science undergraduate course spanning chemistry, maths, physics, bioscience, geography and materials. This draws expertise across a number of Schools to deliver teaching expertise, as well as providing a strong research led teaching base.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Senior Lecturer to support our ambition for a successful Natural Science programme. For this position, we would specifically encourage applications from candidates whose research experience and direction encompass one or more of the broad facets of biochemistry or biophysics, including pharmaceutical development and aspects interfacing with biomaterials and medical devices/ cellular therapeutics, such as regenerative medicine. In addition, the successful candidate will have a caring attitude towards the sustaining Loughborough's excellent student experience.

Candidates should have an established track record of outstanding research with impact and of attracting external funding. They will initiate and participate in collaborative activity with School members and across the University.

The position will commence as soon as possible.
