The Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences is committed to building on its strong academic and research credentials in the application of sport and exercise to human performance and health. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), for example, the Division was ranked 5th in the UK for research power and 1st in the Greater London Area. This reflects a strong tradition in sport, health and exercise sciences coupled with major investment in state-of-the-art facilities for both research and teaching. The facilities include a newly refurbished, world-class Indoor Athletics Centre.
Applications are invited for a full-time Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (Biomechanics) post within the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (part of the Department of Life Sciences) at Brunel University London. The post is aligned to a growth plan within the Division and intended to bolster both our undergraduate (at Lecturer level) and postgraduate (at Senior Lecturer level) teaching provision, as well as add capacity to our research in the area of sport and exercise biomechanics. The post-holder will contribute both to the delivery and promotion of the Division’s suite of undergraduate degree programmes and, given present circumstances relating to the coronavirus pandemic, will need to demonstrate competence in delivering elements of their teaching remotely (i.e., via online platforms). We are likely to continue with dual delivery into the future, as it has proven popular with students.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD in sport and exercise biomechanics or a closely related area (e.g., neuromechanics), have appropriate teaching experience in higher education, and have an emerging research profile (Lecturer level) or an established research profile (Senior Lecturer level) with publications suitable for submission to the next REF. At Lecturer level, the post-holder might be about to complete a PhD (i.e., has submitted their thesis and is presently preparing for their viva voce examination). The post-holder will be expected to supervise undergraduate work placements, undergraduate major projects, master’s-level dissertations and Doctoral Researchers. They will also engage with our flagship Tutoring@Brunel scheme. At Lecturer level, teaching activity will be almost exclusively at undergraduate level while at Senior Lecturer level, there will be a blend of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
We are proud of the exceptional development structure for early-career academics at Brunel University London. An appointment at Lecturer level will be subject to a 2-year probationary period followed by a 2-year development period. If the post-holder meets probationary and development targets, they will have the opportunity to apply for promotion to Senior Lecturer after 4 years.
