We are seeking a talented researcher in Theoretical Astrophysics to join the School of Physics and Astronomy. The Astrophysics Group within the School has 8.4 academic staff and is the premier UK research group in the field of star and planet formation. The group combines multi-wavelength observational and theoretical expertise, with excellent access to international telescopes and dedicated University HPC facilities. This post is aimed at strengthening our portfolio in theoretical astrophysics. We particularly encourage applications from those with complementary research experience to members of the group, especially in fluid dynamics, circumstellar disks, and modelling of star and planet formation. A demonstrated ability and willingness to collaborate with observational colleagues is essential.
You will have an excellent research record and international standing in your research field, the ability to collaborate effectively, evidence of obtaining external research funding and a passion for delivering first-class inspirational teaching and supervision within a research-intensive university. As a Lecturer, you will carry out research, teaching and associated administration within the School, Faculty and University, making a positive contribution to the student experience and working with colleagues and students of all cultures and backgrounds. For appointments at Associate Professor Level, you must also be able to demonstrate a proven track record of successful and substantive grant applications, the capacity to deliver an outstanding student experience and an ability to undertake successful academic leadership.
