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 across Lincoln’s College of Science, specifically with the Schools of Life Sciences and Pharmacy. 

The School builds on a tradition of applied sciences at Lincoln, and operates interdisciplinary research themes at the Chemical-Biology Interface (e.g. toxicology, pharmacology) and Innovative Analytical Methods (including chemical and bioanalytical methods, mass spectrometry) and Advanced Functional Materials (e.g. catalysis, sensors, energy capture and storage). Professional Practice in key areas such as Forensic Science is a vital dimension for the Schools ambition to deliver research and training with impact for for the next generation of Forensic Scientists. 

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 dynamic and enthusiastic professionals for this position to support the development of Forensic Science through experience in relevant research themes and/or professional contexts. An ability to lead provision in one or more specialist forensic methods (e.g. toxicology, trace evidence, DNA, analytical and/or bioanalytical methods) alongside research and/or professional experience in bio/analytical science would be advantageous. Additionally, the successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to develop a broad contribution to the School’s taught programmes in Forensic Professional Practice. A commitment to working within multidisciplinary teams and an enthusiasm for developing research-integrated teaching are strong aspects of this role.

We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups. The School of Chemistry is an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder; the University of Lincoln is an equal-opportunities employer, an Athena SWAN Bronze Institution and was rated Gold in the recent Teaching Excellence Framework.

We strive for a diverse workforce with the very best employees and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. The University encourages applications from underrepresented groups inclusive of Black, Asian and other minoritised/marginalised ethnic groups, all gender identities and expressions from the LGBT+ community, candidates with a disability, and those that practise different faiths and beliefs, to enhance our One Community where we strive to be kind, patient, and supportive of each other.
