The School of Chemistry at the University of Lincoln has quickly established a strong position by developing an ambitions research agenda alongside its successful Employer-Engaged teaching programmes. We are seeking to substantially enhance our position across its key strategic areas of Chemistry and Forensic Science. 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 research groups: Advanced Functional Materials (e.g. energy capture and storage, electronic and optical materials, supramolecular and reticular materials, solid state materials and catalysis, formulation science), Innovative Analytical Methodologies (e.g. analytical and forensic chemistry, sensors, 2D- and 3D-imaging) and the Chemistry-Biology interface (e.g. green chemistry, drug discovery and development, forensic bioanalysis and toxicology, omic sciences). These research groups map to the University’s interdisciplinary research themes, particularly Sustainability, Health and Wellbeing, Rurality Heritage and Digitalisation

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 for strong engagement with the School’s research groups, particularly Innovative Analytical Methods. In addition, an ability to contribute to the School's accredited programmes across chemistry and forensic science will be an advantage. Early career candidates will be able to demonstrate the ability to teach in specialist areas in chemistry and have an enthusiasm for broadening their experience across the chemical sciences.

We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups. The School of Chemistry is an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder and the University of Lincoln is an equal-opportunities employer and an Athena SWAN Bronze Institution and rated Gold in the recent Teaching Excellence Framework.
