The University of Bristol’s School of Chemistry seeks to appoint a Senior Lecturer on the Teaching and Research Pathway. The primary purpose of the job will be to deliver teaching within the Faculty of Science, with a particular focus on promoting, directing and supporting our new MSc in Scientific Computing with Data Science. It is our expectation that the appointee will become the programme director. They will also have the opportunity to establish a nationally and internationally leading research programme at the interface of Chemistry and Scientific Computing.
What will you be doing?
Your main focus will be on directing our new postgraduate taught programme (MSc in Scientific Computing with Data Science, https://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/2023/sci/msc-scientific-computing-with-data-science/), which will include developing, implementing and delivering teaching activities, both independently and collaboratively on units led by other members of staff. Alongside this role, we are also advertising a full-time lecturer post to help to deliver this programme. In addition, you will contribute to the marketing and recruitment activities for this and related programmes, which may involve outreach and public engagement.
You will have the opportunity to establish your research programme and your research interests should align with the School of Chemistry’s and the Faculty of Science’s strategic ambitions in Scientific Computing. You will develop and supervise individual and group research projects undertaken by students on the MSc programme, alongside establishing your research programme.
You should apply if
Our overriding objective is to appoint an experienced individual with the vision and ambition to lead teaching and development in the broad area of Scientific Computing, as well as contributing to the development of Digital Chemistry, which is a strategic priority for the School.
You will contribute extensive teaching experience, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including the design of new units and course materials, and a track record for successful design and implementation of teaching and research programmes.
You will have an established reputation within your academic discipline and will be producing research of international quality. Your research interests should align with the Faculty of Science’s strategic ambitions in Scientific Computing which encompasses computational science, machine learning, automation/flow and digital chemistry, along with other areas where computing and data contribute substantially to the development of new insights, such as the prediction and analysis of spectroscopic data, atmospheric chemistry, theory/modelling, robotics, automation, or astronomy.
Please include concise summaries of both your teaching and research plans in the context of this appointment with your application. Details of the MSc programmes can be found at https://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/2023/sci/msc-scientific-computing-with-data-science/ and the job description for this role describe the research and teaching environment at Bristol.
