Exceptional applicants are sought for two open-ended, full-time Lecturer (Assistant Professor) posts in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bath, UK.  These appointments are integral to the successful operation and development of Chemical Engineering at Bath which includes significant growth in student and staff numbers and in funding.  The research area of both posts is Membrane Technology - one with a focus on water treatment and the other on gas separations.

You will be a highly ambitious PhD graduate, with a good first degree in Chemical Engineering or a very closely related discipline.  You will have a growing publications record and international reputation appropriate to your career stage, and be able to make significant and sustained scholarly contributions to the Department based on research excellence and integrity that fit mainly in the Department's flagship Centre for Advanced Separation Engineering.  Potential for winning and delivering on research grants – including those with industrial relevance and impact – and successful supervision of research students and staff, is expected.  Capability and willingness to teach Chemical Engineering at undergraduate and postgraduate levels (including in design), and to contribute to academic management and leadership, are also expected.

The successful applicant will work in a progressive and successful academic environment, and will benefit from the collaborative and well-established Department and Faculty system at the University. This is supported by an effective professional development programme for new staff. The lifestyle advantages of working and living in one of the most beautiful and accessible areas in the UK are an added attraction.

Selection Process

All applications are online.  They must include a full and up-to-date CV and an outline of plans for the post (up to four pages).  This outline will focus on research (including funding sources), but should also cover teaching.  Please include a Skype address in your application details as we normally contact applicants for initial discussions prior to shortlisting.  Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.  Shortlisted candidates will be invited to Bath to meet staff and students, tour the Department and University, give an oral presentation to staff and research students, and attend a formal face-to-face interview on 8 February 2018.  We expect the successful applicants to be in post as early as possible thereafter.
