You will be expected to conduct an original research programme of international standing in any discipline within experimental light-matter interactions. Your research should complement, enhance and expand current research activities within the Metamaterials Research Centre and the School of Physics and Astronomy. The research should have measurable outcomes that reflect your growing international reputation. You will be expected to publish regularly in internationally recognised peer-reviewed journals and present your results at international scientific conferences. Also, the successful candidate will be expected to generate income from external sources to support his/her research programme.
Teaching responsibilities will include a contribution to the School’s undergraduate and post-graduate activities; for example, preparing and delivering lectures, designing and leading teaching modules, delivering formative and summative assessments, and supervising and examining PhD students. You may also provide seminars and small group tutorials, supervise and assess undergraduate research projects, and if required demonstrate in undergraduate labs.
Management and administration is likely to involve contributions at School level, and/or making an important contribution to some managerial/leadership activities (e.g. working groups) within the University. This may include contributions to knowledge transfer, enterprise, business engagement, public engagement, widening participation, schools outreach, or similar activities at Department/School level or further within the University.
