University of Plymouth - School of Biological and Marine Sciences

Location: Devon, Plymouth
Salary: £38,205 to £54,395 Grade 7/8, per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 23rd February 2024
Closes: 17th March 2024
Job Ref: B0065

The Marine Sciences team within the School of Biological & Marine Sciences at the University of Plymouth is seeking to appoint a new Lecturer to take a major role in delivering and furthering our hydrography teaching and research. Plymouth has a long history of teaching in hydrography and the subject is a key area of growth within the University. Expertise of particular interest would include applications of hydrography in the coastal environment, with a focus on data collection (including experience with autonomous platforms) to further understanding of coastal processes, or studies of coastal and/or inner-shelf marine geoscience which shed light on coastal evolution and sediment transport processes.

You will either be a highly motivated academic, with experience in marine survey, or an experienced individual with extensive proven expertise in hydrography through commercial practice. You will be expected to make a major contribution to and further develop our MSc Hydrography programme, as well as associated undergraduate courses within the Marine Science subject area (including our BSc (Hons) Ocean Exploration and Surveying course). You will also be expected to introduce new capabilities to the globally recognised Coastal Processes Research Group (CPRG).

While this role is closely aligned to our BSc programmes in Ocean Exploration and Surveying and Ocean Science, and the postgraduate programmes, MSc Hydrography and MSc Applied Marine Science, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to teaching across the Marine Sciences Subject Group https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools/school-of-biological-and-marine-sciences/marine-science

You will have a doctoral degree, equivalent international qualification or commensurate level of recognition/national profile in a relevant discipline (e.g., Hydrography, Oceanography, Marine Geoscience), supported by experience at postdoctoral or industry equivalent level, and a proven track record of high calibre research/industry outputs of a quality likely to contribute to our future UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) submission or enterprise income. Clear evidence of successful grant applications (or industry equivalent) as a PI is desirable. All activities that you undertake within this role need to be in compliance with the University’s Safety Policy and undertaken in a way that demonstrates the University’s commitment to Equality and Diversity for staff, students and partners.

It is expected that the successful candidate would be hired on a teaching only contract but a balanced pathway contract could be considered in the case of a research active candidate.

The successful candidate may be required to obtain an ATAS Certificate prior to this research being undertaken.

Please demonstrate how you meet the essential criteria outlined in the knowledge, qualifications, training and experience elements of the job description in your supporting statement.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the role then please contact Daniel Conley: by email at daniel.conley@plymouth.ac.uk

Interviews are likely to take place week commencing Monday 22 April 2024 and you will be notified if you have been shortlisted or not.

This is a full-time position working 37 hours per week on a fixed-term basis for 2 years, due to business demand. This position is fully expected to become permanent following successful conclusion of a probationary period.

Closing date:  12 midnight, Sunday 17 March 2024
