The Natural Sciences programme recruits strong students who are keen to have a broad education both within different scientific disciplines and at their interface. Currently, the programmes offered provide opportunities for students to select units from different departments, including those external to the Faculty, and the majority of student programmes involve two academic disciplines. For more details please see

Over the next three years, Curriculum Transformation will provide opportunities to develop this offering and to explore the potential for greater interdisciplinary activities to run alongside the more traditional single discipline modules.

There are two Director of Studies roles in Natural Sciences. One position has responsibility for the management of Years 1&2, the other takes responsibility for Years 3-5. We are seeking to recruit to both positions from August 2019 for a period of 3 years (renewable) on a part-time basis (0.3 fte).

At their heart, these roles involve the day-to-day management of the undergraduate degree programmes (BSc and MSci). However, they are enhanced by membership of the core Natural Sciences team which involves participation in additional programme-wide activity. For further particulars, see the job description.

The successful applicants will be keen to work as a key team member within Natural Sciences as well as liaising with colleagues from other academic departments and professional services and they will be committed to interdisciplinary science education.

Applications should be made via the University jobs page and should provide an outline of your relevant experience for the role (max 250 words) and your aspirations for the role (max 250 words). You may indicate a preference for the Years 1&2 or Year 3-5 role but it is not necessary to do so.

Dr Jane White ( will become the Head of Natural Sciences from 1 August 2019 and is happy to receive any informal enquiries about the roles.

Interviews will take place in w/c 1 July 2019.
