Lecturer in Molecular Biosciences, University of Kent

University of Kent, Kent, United Kingdom
Application deadline: 19 Aug 2019

The University of Kent are seeking to appoint two members of academic staff at Lecturer level. It is expected that the appointees will conduct internationally-leading research activities and provide quality teaching to both undergraduate and postgraduate students within the School of Biosciences.

The University is also interested in attracting applicants with interests in ‘global challenges’ projects in partnership with Low and Middle Income Countries, to complement recently-awarded ‘GCRF’ grants totalling £11 million to this and a sister School in this University. Applications will be considered from those who are looking for their first academic post, as well as applications from individuals who already hold a permanent or fixed-term position in a UK or overseas academic or research institution. Applications are also encouraged from those that hold a major independent research fellowship funded either by a Research Council (e.g. MRC, BBSRC, EPSRC), a charity (e.g. Wellcome Trust, Leverhulme Trust, CRUK) or an international funding agency (e.g. HFSP, EMBO, Marie Curie).

As a Lecturer in Molecular Biosciences you will:

  • Establish and sustain a vibrant, well-funded research group within the School of Biosciences to secure external research funding through research, enterprise grants or contracts to support a well-defined research agenda, which will deliver outputs of international excellence;
  • Contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the School, undertaking academic duties such as the setting of examination papers, marking, invigilation and pastoral support of students, so as to sustain the delivery of high quality teaching;
  • Undertake such specific school roles and management functions as may be reasonably required by the Head of School; attending School meetings, participating in other committees and working groups within the School, the Faculty and the University to which the post holder is appointed or elected.
