They will be expected to engage closely with the work of colleagues in ASNC; to generate and participate in collaborations with colleagues in other Faculties and Departments in Cambridge; to develop proposals to attract significant external funding; and to develop the kinds of public and professional engagement that will maximise the impact of their research.

The successful applicant will support and maintain the University's national and international reputation for excellence in teaching.
