We provide an environment that supports academic excellence, encourages mutual support and teamwork and nurtures the development of young academics. 

We are dedicated to the creation/expansion of a successful and dynamic teaching and research academic team that enhances the School’s reputation. 

The appointed academic will be expected to supervise PhD students, Masters students and students on industrial placements.
