Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Astronomy

As part of a strategy to rapidly expand our Physics programme, the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics (MSP) is looking to appoint a number of Observational Astronomers. We are looking for enthusiastic academics with expertise in any area of observational astronomy. Newcastle University expects to grow its Physics academic staff by employing ~30 Physicists over the next 5-7 years.

The successful candidate(s) will have the opportunity to help shape the research and teaching associated with this expansion. We are committed to using this opportunity to build a Physics environment with Equality and Diversity at its core. As such, in addition to a strong research track record, the successful applicant(s) will have a genuine interest and commitment to developing the role of under-represented groups in Physics, and an interest in establishing innovative, evidence based programmes that will target these groups at all levels. In addition, the successful candidate will need to demonstrate the potential to be a strong role model for the values of equality, diversity and inclusion.

The successful candidate(s) will be expected to establish their own area of expertise, but may find synergies with our existing areas of strength (galactic magnetism, stellar and planetary (magneto-) hydrodynamics, cosmology and relativity). Similarly, there will be opportunity to leverage our strengths in statistics.

For more information or informal enquiries, please contact Dr Tamara Rogers, tamara.rogers@ncl.ac.uk or call +44 (0) 191 208 7294.
