The successful candidate will contribute towards the maintenance and enhancement of the University’s reputation for research, knowledge exchange, teaching and scholarship and consequently must be an expert in at least one of these areas, will be REF-ready with a track record of world leading or internationally excellent publications and have a history of external fundraising.

UWE Bristol is a growing and ambitious university that is one of the largest providers of Higher Education in South West England – with over 30,000 students, 250,000 alumni and 3,600 staff.  We are globally connected and regionally embedded, and value teaching and learning very highly alongside research with impact. We offer a range of relevant degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. UWE graduates already have a high rate of graduate employment, but we are aiming to take this even higher through greater interaction between industry, research and education.

This post is based at our lively Frenchay campus where we have invested in the latest facilities and resources to give our students and staff access to everything they need to succeed – with £300m having been spent on new state-of-the-art learning spaces and accommodation to enhance our offer even further. Frenchay campus is within close proximity to excellent motorway links and within walking distance of two train stations, making it the ideal place to work for those wishing to commute to Bristol.

Bristol itself is a hub of social and cultural activity and is a big pull for students and employers alike. A place with a strong, creative and fiercely independent mindset. A city with a buzzing music scene, great restaurants and interesting business ventures. It’s not surprising Bristol is consistently named as one of the best places to live and work in the UK.

In addition to progressive pay rates we offer a wide range of staff benefits which includes a holiday allowance of 35 days as well as up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year, flexible working, excellent defined benefit pension schemes and a range of family friendly policies.
