Are you a high performing Early Career Researcher looking to build success with the UK’s leading business-facing University?

The University of Hertfordshire is investing in its future research staff and infrastructure and is in the process of transitioning the delivery of its research under six Themes: Food; Global Economy; Health and Wellbeing; Heritage, Culture and Communities; Information and Security; Space.

The new Early Career Research Fellowship post is offered for 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 post, which is aligned with the Global Economy Theme, is focused on one or more of the following areas:

• Industrial Ecology and Symbiosis
• Materials resource efficiency
• Materials recovery and recycling to “close the loop”
• The use of alternative materials to reduce the consumption of “at risk” and strategic materials
• Build models to support a life-cycle approach and/or quantify environmental impact

For more information on the post, please refer to the Further Particulars information on our website.

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