The School of Chemistry at the University of Lincoln has quickly established a strong position by developing an ambitious research agenda alongside Employer-Engaged STEM taught programmes. Building on success in innovative student programmes and in our recent success in our first REF submission to Chemistry, the School is investing to considerably enhance its position and further its reputation in the application of chemistry in research and innovation. Substantial on-going investment has been realised in research and teaching facilities and assembling specialist support teams. Combined, these have created a dynamic and modern working environment for the School.
For this lectureship, we are targeting individuals with the ability to develop our programme in cutting-edge science and support our future research ambitions. Research in the School promotes inter-disciplinarity and aligns to three research groups: Advanced Functional Materials (e.g. energy capture and storage, electronic and optical materials, supramolecular and reticular materials, solid state materials and catalysis, formulation science), Innovative Analytical Methodologies (e.g. analytical and forensic chemistry, sensors, 2D- and 3D-imaging) and the Chemistry-Biology interface (e.g. green chemistry, drug discovery and development, forensic bioanalysis and toxicology, omic sciences). These research groups map to the University’s interdisciplinary research themes, particularly Sustainability, Health and Wellbeing, Rurality Heritage and Digitalisation
A commitment to working within multidisciplinary teams and an enthusiasm for developing research-integrated teaching will be strong attributes in the successful candidates.
We are seeking applicants with significant research track record and the potential for strong engagement with the School’s research groups, particularly Innovative Analytical Methods. In addition, an ability to contribute to the School's accredited programmes across chemistry and forensic science will be an advantage. Early career candidates will be able to demonstrate the ability to teach in specialist areas in chemistry and have an enthusiasm for broadening their experience across the chemical sciences.
We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups. The School of Chemistry is an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder and the University of Lincoln is an equal-opportunities employer and an Athena SWAN Bronze Institution and rated Gold in the recent Teaching Excellence Framework. For informal enquiries, please contact email@example.com for the attention of Professor Tasnim Munshi, Deputy Head of School.
We strive for a diverse workforce with the very best employees and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. The University encourages applications from underrepresented groups inclusive of Black, Asian and other minoritised/marginalised ethnic groups, all gender identities and expressions from the LGBT+ community, candidates with a disability, and those that practise different faiths and beliefs, to enhance our One Community where we strive to be kind, patient, and supportive of each other.
