Applications are invited for a University Assistant Professor to work in the area of materials chemistry, broadly defined, including biologically inspired materials, and bio-hybrid materials for energy and other applications. The post is linked to the Anne Logue College Lectureship at Newnham College, to which the successful applicant will be simultaneously appointed. This linked post is intended to support and promote the study of chemistry and research in chemistry by women.
The successful applicant will have excellent record of research in materials chemistry (broadly defined), and will be expected to develop a dynamic, high quality and externally-funded research programme at an international level. Interdisciplinary and collaborative research is strongly encouraged across the university and its associated institutes.
This post, subject to satisfactory completion of a probationary period (up to 5 years), leads to a tenured position as University Associate Professor. The University has a merit-based promotions procedure leading to Professor Grade 11 (equivalent to Reader) and then to Professor Grade 12 (Full Professor) via the University's Academic Career Pathway scheme.
Applicants must have a PhD degree in a relevant subject, significant post-doctoral experience, and strong evidence of research excellence. University Assistant Professors are expected to develop and lead their own research programmes, so must be able to demonstrate a significant degree of independence.
Candidates must demonstrate a firm commitment to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Within the Department of Chemistry the successful applicant will be expected to contribute to and develop courses within the general area of materials chemistry, covering both specialised and core material. As a College Lecturer, the successful applicant will engage in directing studies, teaching, admissions interviews and other duties agreed within the College for between 4 and 6 hours a week during term time, for which an additional stipend will be paid.
