Forensic Science is a key component of long-standing and successful STEM provision at the University of Lincoln. Since the inception of the School of Chemistry in 2014, supported by a £6.8m award from HEFCE’s Catalyst Fund and strategic University investment in infrastructure, the Forensic Science programmes reside formally in the School. However, to maximise the subject’s interdisciplinary footprint, the programmes operate jointly with Lincoln’s School of Life Sciences as the Forensic Science Subject Centre.
The School builds on a tradition of applied sciences at Lincoln, and operates interdisciplinary research themes at chemical-materials and chemical-biology interfaces including analytical chemical and/or biological methods (e.g. pharmacology and toxicology), sensor development, active functional materials, structural or spectroscopic methods, and novel synthetic methods.
The taught Forensic Science portfolio includes undergraduate Forensic Science and Forensic Chemistry and post-graduate Forensic Science degrees. An innovative undergraduate curriculum in undergraduate Forensic Science was re-validated in 2017 and was re-accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences in the same year. The programme is based on four key themes: Biological Sciences, Analytical Sciences, Crime Scene Science and Professional Practice.
We seek a dynamic and enthusiastic scientist to support the development of Forensic Science as a fixed term appointment as maternity cover. An ability to taught lead provision in one or more specialist forensic methods (e.g. fingerprinting, blood pattern and DNA analysis) alongside research experience in bio/analytical science methods would be advantageous. Additionally, the successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to support a broad contribution to the School, particularly in developing aspects of Professional Practice. A commitment to working within multidisciplinary teams and an enthusiasm for developing research-integrated teaching are strong aspects of the role
