The University of Bristol’s School of Chemistry seeks to appoint a Lecturer on the Teaching and Research Pathway. The purpose of the job will be to deliver teaching within the Faculty of Science, with a particular focus on supporting our new MSc in Scientific Computing with Data Science. The position will be part of Bristol Scientific Computing (BriSC) and the appointee will be based in the School of Chemistry (SoC), with strong links to other schools in the Faculty of Science (FoS). They will have the opportunity to develop a research programme at the interface of Chemistry and Scientific Computing.
What will you be doing?
Your main focus will be on developing, implementing and delivering teaching on 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/). Alongside this role, we are advertising a part-time senior lecturer post to lead on the development, marketing and delivery of this programme. Teaching in this programme will be delivered through small group tutorials, lectures, workshops and seminars. There will be significant opportunity to contribute to the preparation and development of content, both independently and collaboratively. You will also set and mark coursework and support other assessment tasks in these units.
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
We are looking for applicants with experience of teaching in higher education. You will need to have high-level computational and programming skills using modern languages and associated tools (e.g., Python, Jupyter, GitHub, C++ etc.) and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with a diverse undergraduate student body.
You will have a publication record appropriate to your current experience. As you will supervise and support research projects undertaken by students on the MSc programme, 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.
