Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation

Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Gravitational Wave Science

Employment Type: Full-time, permanent

Salary: £38,833 to £47,772 per annum

Position Number: ZZ004181

Closing date: 6th November 2017

Start date: 1st April 2018 or by agreement

 

The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth invites applications for a senior lectureship in gravitational wave science, as part of a new research group, complementing existing research at the ICG.

 

The ICG is a world-leading research institute in cosmology and astrophysics. In REF2014 96% of our research outputs were judged internationally excellent or world leading. We are now looking to expand into gravitational wave research, supported by external research funding and our undergraduate courses in Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology. We encourage applications from scientists with an excellent record of high quality research publications related to gravitational wave science, innovation, impact and external grant funding (which may include research fellowships).

 

Applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups in science. The ICG and the University of Portsmouth hold Athena SWAN bronze awards and we are an Institute of Physics Project Juno Supporter. These projects show a commitment to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality in science and create a better working environment for men and women.

 

The ICG consists of 13 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers, more than 20 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme.

 

ICG is a member of several major astronomical surveys (Sloan Digital Sky Survey, Dark Energy Survey, Large Synpotic Survey Telescope, Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument) with major involvement in ESA’s Euclid satellite mission and the Square Kilometre Array.

 

The University of Portsmouth is a member of the South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More information can be found at http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/

 

Please contact the ICG directors, Profs Bob Nichol (bob.nichol@port.ac.uk) and David Wands (david.wands@port.ac.uk), to discuss this opportunity. Your application (application form and CV) should be submitted via the online application system by the closing date. Your application will be processed and conducted in compliance with UK legislation relevant at that time.
