Whorrod Research Fellow in Sustainable Chemical Technologies

University of Bath - Chemistry

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) is a multidisciplinary initiative led by the Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the University of Bath, UK.  The CSCT incorporates the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Chemical Technologies (SCT) and brings together researchers with expertise across a wide spectrum of applied chemical sciences to establish an infrastructure for interdisciplinary collaborative research with a common theme of sustainability.

We are seeking an exceptionally motivated and qualified scientists and engineers as candidates for a five-year Whorrod Fellowship in SCT to build an independent research career and become a leader in their chosen field. The Fellow appointed is expected to be a strong candidate for a permanent academic post during the course of their fellowship.

The successful applicant will have postdoctoral experience in any area of sustainable chemical technologies and a background in any relevant discipline. They will be expected to build independent research complementary to, but not duplicating, current research in the CSCT. Applicants focusing on circular approaches to manufacturing, sustainable polymer processing, or industrial biotechnology are particularly encouraged to apply.

This will be the sixth post funded by an endowment to the CSCT from Roger and Sue Whorrod. In addition to the salary, the endowment will provide generous research costs and access to PhD studentships. Whorrod Fellows are closely involved in supervision and mentoring of CDT PhD students.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to provide research proposals prior to interview as part of the assessment process. 

Interviews will take place on 13th June 2018 and the post will be available immediately thereafter.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Matthew Davidson, CSCT Director (m.g.davidson@bath.ac.uk, 01225 386443, www.bath.ac.uk/csct).

The University of Bath is an equal opportunities employer and has an excellent international reputation with staff from over 60 different nations. To achieve our global aspirations, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
