The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology is seeking to appoint two Assistant Professors (University Lecturer) from October 2023 or sooner. The successful candidates will be designated as an Associate Professor once probation has been successfully completed.
Assistant Professor (Biotechnology NQ33328)
The Department wishes to appoint a researcher in the field of Biotechnology. This is a deliberately wide definition to appeal to a broad spectrum of applicants and ensure accessibility for under-represented groups, but we expect the successful candidate to strengthen one, or both, of our core strategic themes of sustainability and healthcare. Themes we have a particular interest in strengthening are Biofuels, Bioprocessing, molecular Biotechnology, computational biotechnology, agricultural biotechnology, but the overriding criterion is research excellence, and we will consider candidates both from theoretical and experimental research areas.
Assistant Professor (Fluid Mechanics NQ33330)
The Department wishes to appoint a researcher in the field of Fluid Mechanics. The successful candidate will have an internationally recognised research track record in a field that underpins one, or both, of the departments impact themes in sustainability and healthcare. Topics we have a particular interest in covering include any of, or combinations of, low Reynolds number flows, flows in nanotechnology and biological systems, simulations of industrial flows, natural environment flows, rheology, two phase flows.
Closing date for both roles is 6 January 2023
