The Place of Useful Learning
Professor of Physics and Life Sciences
Applications are invited for a Professorship in Physics and Life Sciences (PaLS) within the Nanoscience Division in the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde. This interdisciplinary position will extend and complement the University’s existing strong research programmes within molecular nanometrology and biophysics. The successful applicant will have experience, for example, in the interactions, dynamics and reactions of model biological systems, and those within cells, using techniques such as, spectroscopy, microscopy, time- resolved methods, nanotechnology and modelling. Studies at the single molecule level are of particular interest. The position is part of a new initiative in PaLS by SUPA (Scottish Universities Physics Alliance) following the award of £48m institutional and Scottish Funding Council investment.
You will be based in the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde and will be expected to develop and strengthen collaborative projects across University and SUPA. You will be expected to build up an internationally leading research activity, attract significant funding, publish in leading journals and contribute to teaching and to the strategic and operational management of the Department.
With a PhD (or equivalent) in Physics or relevant discipline, you will have an excellent track record of publication in highly rated academic journals, of securing research funding and of delivering teaching at all levels.
