The School of Sport and Exercise Sciences seeks to strategically develop its world-leading profile of teaching and research excellence by the appointment of leading academics across the core disciplines of Sport and Exercise Sciences.

The emphasis of this post is to enhance our genetics and epigenetics focus, extend our world-leading research, impact and student competency within these disciplines.

You will also be expected to demonstrate an ability to support other applied sport and exercise science disciplines (inc., physiology, sport nutrition, strength and conditioning) and support the creation and subsequent supervision of project students and applied placements within the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences.
