The School of Chemistry at the University of Lincoln has quickly established a strong position by developing an ambitions research agenda alongside Employer-Engaged STEM taught programmes. It is seeking to substantially enhance its position across its key strategic areas of Chemistry and Forensic Science, and further its track record in the application of chemistry in research and innovation.  Substantial investment has been realised in new research and teaching facilities and specialist support to create a dynamic and modern working environment for the School.

For these lectureships, we are targeting individuals with the ability to develop our programme in cutting-edge science and support our future research ambitions. Research in the School promotes inter-disciplinarity and aligns to three themes: advanced materials (e.g. electronic and optical materials, supramolecular and reticular materials, catalysis), innovative chemical methodologies (e.g. organic synthesis, analytical chemistry, and formulation science) and the chemistry-bioscience interface (e.g. drug discovery and development, and forensic bioanalysis and toxicology) and we are seeking enthusiastic individuals to promote one or more of these themes.

An ability to provide a broad contribution to the School's accredited programmes across chemistry and forensic science will be an advantage.  A commitment to working within multidisciplinary teams and an enthusiasm for developing research-integrated teaching will be strong attributes in the successful candidates.

We are seeking applicants with significant research track record and the potential to provide a sustained contribution to all aspects of the Schools’ activities including research, teaching and academic administration.  Early career candidates will be able to demonstrate the ability to teach in specialist areas and have an enthusiasm for broadening their experience across the chemical sciences.
