About the role
We are looking for a Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry to join the School of Chemistry at the University of Leicester. We are looking for someone who can make important contributions to both research and teaching. We are especially keen to receive applications from those whose research contributes to some of our main research themes, particularly clean energy, materials, or chemical biology.
In terms of teaching, you will work as part of a vibrant team delivering innovative teaching across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. This includes delivering lectures, classes and seminars, curriculum development, designing and marking assessments, personal tutoring, responding to student queries, outreach activities and employer engagement. You will also help us to deliver teaching in China under the auspices of the Dalian Leicester Institute. You will be able to join other colleagues as part of our ‘flying faculty’ team who will travel to China and deliver intensive teaching in short blocks of time (typically two weeks).
We will support you in developing your career and, in turn, you will play a key role in ensuring our continued success and fulfilling our future ambitions.
We are looking for an enthusiastic scientist capable of constructing a long-term research programme of high quality and high impact. We are also looking for an educator capable of inspiring interest, curiosity and drive for learning in our students. You will have a real passion for the subject matter and be motivated to provide the very best experience for our students using your expertise and skill to ensure all reach their potential.Additional information
