Inspirational applicants are sought for an open-ended, full-time Lecturer (Assistant Professor) post in Chemical Engineering at the University of Bath.

This is integral to the success of our rejuvenated degree course offerings and the commitment, through our teaching and research activities, to address the big challenges of today such as climate change, sustainable energy, population growth & an ageing population, and clean water for all.

You will be a hard-working and ethically minded PhD graduate in Chemical Engineering or a closely related subject, with a good first degree in Chemical, Biochemical or Process Engineering. 

Through your teaching, you will have an interest in developing the next generation of chemical engineers, so the ability to teach a wide range of chemical engineering subjects at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels on all our courses is expected, including core subjects such as reaction engineering and process design. You will have a growing publication record and international reputation appropriate to your career stage, and you will demonstrate a clear fit to the Department’s research profile with a focus on reaction engineering. Potential for winning and delivering on research grants and successful supervision of research students and staff is expected. You will also contribute to academic management and leadership in both teaching and research, and be an active member of the department and university community.

You will be joining a progressive and successful academic environment, and will benefit from the collaborative and well-established Department and Faculty systems at the University of Bath. This is supported by a strong mentoring environment in the Department, and the University’s professional development programme for new lecturers. 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

In addition to the application form, you must include a full and up-to-date CV together with an outline of plans for the post. Your outline, up to four pages long, will focus on research including funding sources and should also cover teaching.

Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Skype calls will be in week commencing 23 September 2019.
