Lecturer Forensic Toxicology 
Full-time, Fixed Term 5 Months
AC2 £35,550 - £42,418 per annum 

The School of Science and Sport is a multidisciplinary school, with a diverse range of programmes delivered at our Paisley, Hamilton, Ayr and London campuses with a combined total of circa 1600 students. Teaching and Research are at the heart of all of the School's activities; NSS teaching scores are at 100% in some of our Undergraduate programmes, and we are looking to build and diversify from the success of REF2014.

You will be a highly motivated individual with relevant experience in pharmaceutical analysis and forensic science. Joining a small but progressive team of individuals in delivery and development of forensic science provision within the School, you will be required to deliver advanced courses in forensic toxicology and courses in general chemistry and forensic science.   Having a degree in chemical or forensic science or a closely-related discipline and a teaching or training qualification, you will help the team grow the programmes, delivering excellence in the field.  

The teaching provision is centred on the BSc Hons in Forensic Science and the BSc Hons Chemistry (RSC accredited).  The programmes are mainly delivered on Paisley Campus. You will be based at our Paisley Campus, but a willingness to travel, including internationally, is an essential aspect of this post. 

For informal enquiries about this post please contact Dr Ciaran Ewins, Senior Lecturer  (0141 848 3206) or Professor Fiona Henriquez, Interim Assistant Dean, Education (0141 848 3119)
