"Spicy world of NanoScience"
Please see below details of three new Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level positions at the University of Strathclyde for which applications are now invited. The appointments are to be made within the broad area of bionanotechnology and would be expected to complement existing research activity in this area. As part of this theme, one of the areas that we are interested in strengthening is in time resolved bionano studies, including ultrafast spectroscopy and next-generation imaging. I would therefore ask that you pass this on to any people who you think maybe interested in applying. More details can be found at http://www.mis.strath.ac.uk/Personnel/open/1792011.htm. Anyone interested is encouraged to contact myself (neil.hunt(a)strath.ac.uk) or head of the physics department Prof Rob Martin (r.w.martin(a)strath.ac.uk) for any informal enquiries.
The vision of the University of Strathclyde is bold and transformational, placing it among the leading international technological universities. This promises an institution that is vibrant, dynamic and internationally focused, carrying out cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge exchange of global relevance. This post forms part of the University’s Strategic Academic Investment Scheme (SAIS) which is focused on recruiting the best talent to enhance capacity and leadership in areas identified as critical to Strathclyde’s future.
The Departments of Pure and Applied Chemistry and Physics seek to appoint to these posts which will expand their multidisciplinary area of bionanotechnology within the University. You will preferably have a background in chemistry or physics and be comfortable working between disciplines and as part of a larger ongoing activity. The posts support investment in the Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) which has been created at Strathclyde with bionanotechnology as one of the main themes of expertise. As well as a track record of high achievement in fundamental research, you will be expected to engage actively with end users and industry. Applications are particularly encouraged from high achievers supported by fellowships, who are looking for a significant career enhancement.
The University has a transformational agenda as an international technological University. To address major research challenges of significance in the 21st Century, multidisciplinary teams are being brought together in an exciting new development to combine strengths in engineering, science, business and the social sciences. At £89 million, the project is Strathclyde’s single-biggest investment in its research capacity. The University’s innovative approach has attracted financial backing from Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Funding Council who recognise TIC’s potential to redefine the way Scottish Higher Education works with industry and maximise the impact of knowledge exchange. The bionanotechnology theme is one aspect of TIC with these posts designed to add to the critical mass in this area and provide future growth.
