PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS
The Department of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Hull invites applications for a full professorship from internationally leading researchers. Applications are sought in one of the following three areas: astrophysics, laser applications or the interface between physics and biomedical science. Significant start-up funding is available and further academic appointments will be made once a professor is appointed.
We are looking for an internationally leading researcher who complements existing academic staff. Our Astrophysics and Gravitation group spans a range of topics including cosmology, extra-galactic observational astronomy, string theory and solar physics. This group would be strengthened by appointment of an astronomer with expertise in theory/modelling. Applicants with interests in magneto-hydrodynamics, simulations of large-scale structure, galaxy evolution, observational cosmology or solar physics are particularly encouraged to apply. The laser group has interests in ablation, patterning, pulsed laser deposition and femtosecond laser science. Applicants with interests in green technology, laser processing of biomaterials or surface modification for photonics are particularly welcome. In biomedical science, we are especially interested in applicants with expertise in one of the following areas: imaging, sensing, solid-state physics for diagnostics and treatments, radiotherapy, biologically assisted self-assembly, healthcare technologies or whose research couples condensed matter and biology.
To discuss this role informally, please contact either Professor Steve Kelly, Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, +441482466347, firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Professor Mary O’Neill, Head of the Department of Physics and Mathematics, +441482465246, email@example.com
