Lecturer in Physical or Physical Organic Chemistry

Staffordshire University - School of Law, Policing & Forensics

Location: Stoke campus

Interview Date: Monday 14 May 2018 

We are the Connected University. We’re connected to the needs of our students, to business and to society.

Staffordshire University has its main, city centre campus in Stoke-on-Trent. In addition to this, we have Centres of Excellence in Stafford and Shrewsbury, and a global network of more than 20,000 people studying our degrees internationally. Our industry connections and emphasis on experience make our graduates among the most employable in the UK. Our silver award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework recognises excellent standards of learning and teaching, while 78 per cent of our research is world leading or of international importance (Research Excellence Framework 2014).  Our interdisciplinary network of research centres drives the publication of hundreds of papers each year.

As part of the expansion of our science provision, we are proud to be launching a suite of new undergraduate chemistry courses in September 2018. These will be based in our state-of-the-art Science Centre in Stoke-on-Trent and will benefit from our high-quality teaching and research laboratories, plus a great array of analytical and technical equipment, including NMR, SEM and XRD.

We are now seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic chemist to join our team from the outset of these exciting developments. You will be a Physical or Physical Organic Chemist with a PhD (or have submitted your PhD thesis) in an appropriate area and be able to teach a broad range of topics in physical and physical organic chemistry – a knowledge of materials or polymer chemistry will be an advantage, although not essential.

Being an innovative and passionate educator, you will play an important role in developing teaching materials, laboratory classes and contributing to the overall success of our new Chemistry courses. You will also play an active part in our recruitment activities, work with schools and colleges, our wider programme of public engagement activities and working towards securing accreditation with the Royal Society of Chemistry.

As an active researcher, you will be supported in developing your profile, research team and being part of future REF submissions.
