We support our academic staff with a rich personal development programme, seed funds for mobility and networking, grants writing support, internal funding scheme for PhD studentships, and engagement with industry partners and facilities. We have a strong team-based working style and we support new academics in a friendly and collaborative environment and expect them to be excellent team players and communicators.
