The Department of Physics at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the fixed term Career Development Fellowship. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Physics.

Successful applicants are normally expected to be within 8 years of completing their PhD, although career breaks for parental leave and/or health reasons will be considered.

The posts are also open to those who are returning to academia after a career in another sector.
