Exceptional applicants are sought for an open-ended, full-time Lecturer (Assistant Professor) post in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bath, UK. This appointment is integral to the successful operation and development of Chemical Engineering at Bath which includes significant growth in student and staff numbers and in funding.

You will be a highly ambitious and qualified PhD graduate, with a good first degree in Chemical Engineering or a very closely related discipline. You will have a growing publications record and international reputation appropriate to your career stage, and be able to make significant and sustained scholarly contributions to the Department based on research excellence and integrity that fit within one or more of the Department's activities: Centre for Advanced Separation Engineering, Water Innovation and Research Centre, Bioprocessing Research Unit and Reaction and Catalysis Research Unit). Potential for winning and delivering on research grants – including those with industrial relevance and impact – and successful supervision of research students and staff, is expected. Capability and willingness to teach Chemical Engineering at undergraduate and postgraduate levels (including in design), and to contribute to academic management and leadership, are also expected.

The successful applicant will work in a progressive and successful academic environment, and will benefit from the collaborative and well-organised Department and Faculty system at the University. This is supported by an effective professional development programme for new staff. The lifestyle advantages of working and living in one of the most beautiful and accessible areas in the UK are an added attraction.
