The Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing at Coventry University is one of the largest in the UK, and is nationally and internationally renowned as a centre of innovation for its teaching, learning and research of computing subject areas.

The School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics is one of three schools within the faculty and has a very successful suite of courses supported by excellent staff, teaching facilities and laboratories. The school is responsible for the development of a thriving portfolio of teaching and research.

The School of Computing Electronics and Mathematics is looking for a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Statistical Physics or Condensed Matter Theory to expand the current very successful Statistical Physics group. The successful candidate will have a significant body of high quality research outputs, have a doctorate and a history of income generation commensurate with expectation for the discipline.

The Statistical Physics group carries out research in fundamental questions of critical phenomena and phase transitions, both theoretically and numerically, as well as applications of Statistical Physics to areas of Complexity, Networks (transport, social, etc), Soft Condensed Matter, Nonequilibrium Quantum and Classical systems as well as pushing the boundaries in modern computational methods for simulations in physics. The group has strong and excellent national and international links.

The successful candidate would be expected to contribute to research in areas which would complement and/or extend the current activity and would be expected to participate actively in the academic life of both the school and the research group.

The position comes with teaching duties mostly within our undergraduate programmes in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics, but the person recruited could also contribute to the school's teaching in Data Science, Machine Learning, Programming, etc depending on interests and qualifications.

For informal discussion about the position, please contact the Head of School, Professor Damien Foster (ab5651@coventry.ac.uk) or the Head of the Statistical Physics group, Professor Ralph Kenna (csx267@coventry.ac.uk).

As one of Coventry's biggest employers we will provide an excellent benefits package and a personal and professional development programme that will help you to achieve your aspirations.
