The Faculty of Science and Engineering is seeking to appoint a new lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry. The School of Sciences is a vibrant multidisciplinary School encompassing Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Biomedical Science, Forensic Science and Physiology. The School is looking to appoint an outstanding individual to undertake teaching and research in the area of Inorganic Chemistry. We particularly welcome applications whose research and teaching expertise would enhance our activity in the area of synthetic inorganic chemistry. The post will involve contributing to the development and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching to students on our physical sciences programmes at all levels from foundation to masters, and may involve some teaching students from other schools. A commitment to outreach and community activities is essential for this role. You will have evidence of being able to deliver research outcomes that will contribute to the REF, either by evidence of independent research with the capability of attracting support or by engaging with one or more of the successful research areas that form part of the School’s research portfolio.  You will have a minimum of a good honours degree and doctorate in an area related to Inorganic Chemistry. Good communication and organisational skills are essential attributes.


The Department of Biology, Chemistry and Forensic Science is an active and expanding area within the University.  There are laboratory facilities available for physical sciences together with extensive facilities for materials science and materials testing on our Telford Innovation Campus. As part of the University’s on-going investment in science and technology, the Faculty’s research and teaching laboratory activity has recently relocated into a new £25 million laboratory building.  This houses state-of-the art teaching and research facilities to support chemistry.


We are committed to promoting and developing a culture of excellence, diversity and mutual respect that supports all of our staff and students and welcome applications from all sections of society.
