The School of Physics & Astronomy is seeking to recruit two Lecturers in Astrophysics. We are looking for motivated individuals to develop and deliver high quality, innovative teaching to our well-qualified undergraduate population, while undertaking an independent research programme in astrophysics. The School is internationally recognised for its research (http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics-astronomy/research/), and has been rated top ten in the UK for over twenty years.
We are particularly interested in applicants who complement and extend our current research programmes in astronomy from exoplanets and their host stars, star formation, galaxies, active galactic nuclei and cosmology. Applicants should have a strong record of research in astrophysics and some teaching experience, preferably at the undergraduate level. The applicants should possess a PhD in Astronomy.
Applications are particularly welcome from those with a commitment to the School and University's aspirations towards equality, diversity and inclusivity. The School has Juno Champion status, which recognises physics departments who take action to embed better working practices for all staff and to address the under-representation of women in UK and Irish universities, and holds an Athena Swan Silver award. The University Strategy has “Diverse St Andrews” as one of its key themes and acknowledges an institutional priority towards greater racial and ethnic diversity. The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, demonstrated by its Gender and Race Equality Charters and Athena SWAN award for women in science, HR Excellence in Research Award and the LGBT Charter.
