Candidates will be assessed on the quality of their scholarship, appropriate to their career stage; in particular:

  • evidence of emerging leadership in their respective field, as demonstrated by research achievements and future plans;
  • extensive experience of analytical methods appropriate to the discipline; ability to apply these methods to produce robust results;
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills, as evidenced by publications and other research communication;
  • ability to work without close supervision, prioritise work, manage time effectively and make independent decisions;
  • this appointment cannot be held in conjunction with any other full-time employment.

Consideration will also be given to the degree of fit of the proposed topic of research with the College’s research and teaching interests.
