The School of Physics at the University of Bristol seeks to appoint a Lecturer whose role will be to deliver a world-class research programme in detection materials and technology, as part of our Materials and Devices Theme; you will also deliver undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. This full-time post is an exciting opportunity to be part of a high-profile university which values its international leading research track record which you will complement/enhance.
What will you be doing?
You will be developing an independent research group, publishing high impact publications obtaining external research funding. Potential areas of interest include investigation of novel radiation-hard materials and the development of transformative world-class high-rate particle detection technologies, including detectors, driver electronics, its power supply and communication. Detection materials includes wide and ultra-wide bandgap semiconductor materials, and others. The application of detection technology widely ranges from radiation monitoring for nuclear decontamination and decommission, space technology (e.g., satellites and space shuttles), border control, medical applications, particle physics detectors at international accelerators and facilities which are essential for ground-breaking new discoveries.
You will also be involved in a range of undergraduate teaching activities in the school, including small group tutorials, lectures, workshops. There will be opportunities to contribute to the preparation and development of units. You will engage effectively with the University’s Cultivating Research-rich Education and Teaching Excellence (CREATE) scheme.
