Our guiding principle is “excellence in research, excellence in teaching”. Therefore, we expect the successful appointee to assist in delivering relevant and inspiring teaching to one or more of our degree courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Candidates will be required to conduct internationally excellent research demonstrated through publications in high quality peer-reviewed journals.
