Are you a high performing early career researcher looking to build success with the UK’s leading business-facing University?

The University is investing in its future research staff and infrastructure, and is in the process of transitioning the delivery of its research in Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics. The role will assist in the further development of research excellence and provide both increased external profile and internal focus for Hertfordshire’s research activities.

It is essential that you have:
• An undergraduate honours degree at a minimum 2:2 (or equivalent in a relevant discipline).
• A PhD or equivalent in a relevant subject or equivalent experience.

The new Research Fellow post is offered on a five year term in the first instance. It is our expectation, however, that the successful appointee will grow their research activities to become a permanent academic staff member by the end of that period. 

The University offers a range of benefits including a guaranteed pension, professional development, family friendly policies and discounted memberships at the Hertfordshire Sports Village.

For more information on the post, an opportunity to speak to the research lead and to discuss how the University supports researcher development, please go to the relevant Further Particulars on our website.
