The University of York has, as a strategic goal, that by 2030, it will be known for its ambitious and effective industry partnerships. As a University for Public Good, we will innovate in partnership with business and industry to create a more equitable and sustainable future that considers society, culture and the environment alongside economic prosperity. Truly a University for the Public Good.
To fulfil this ambition, we launched a transformational initiative to Build Industry Engagement and Impact. At the heart of this transformation is the recruitment of outward-facing experts who will champion, lead and inspire research translation and engagement with industry and business. We are seeking candidates who have considerable experience working in or collaborating with business and industry in order to realise this ambition. We are seeking to appoint up to four Research Professors as part of this initial round of recruitment.
Applications are welcomed in any discipline(s) where a significant opportunity can be demonstrated to enhance our strategic industrial partnerships. Areas already identified where we have great potential to expand existing collaborations include: healthcare and biomedical sciences, biotechnology, creative technologies, environmental sustainability and safe autonomous systems. We are interested in engaging with both researchers already in higher education and colleagues in industry/business seeking to move into an academic setting.
Female candidates, and candidates who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, are strongly encouraged to apply as they are currently under-represented in senior academic roles at the University.
We recognise the potential of part-time working and the ability to balance work and personal/family commitments. We are also keen to explore joint appointments with business or industry and the mutual benefits this could bring.
