We seek someone with an (inter)national reputation and publication record in materials modelling who is keen to develop independent research programmes and to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training in materials modelling. If you meet these criteria and hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with significant post-qualification research experience, this could be your next role.
This 4-year post has been created to fulfil a teaching and research need in the area of mathematical and computational modelling of materials in the Department of Materials. It will provide you with an opportunity to contribute to management and leadership of the Materials Modelling Laboratory alongside Professor Jonathan Yates; and also to contribute to tutorial teaching in Materials Science at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
Within the department you will have the opportunity to contribute to and gain experience with undergraduate and post-graduate teaching in Materials Science. Undergraduate teaching will include lecture courses and practical classes, including assisting with developing new courses. You will also co-supervise final-year undergraduate research projects and post-graduate research projects. You will also be expected to develop research activities both independently and working with internal and external collaborators.
You will also be responsible for providing small group tutorial teaching (primarily to Corpus Christi students). You will be expected to teach across a range of materials science topics and in particular those that are closer to the physics end of the Materials Science spectrum.
All applications must be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement as part of your application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 3 June 2019. Interviews are scheduled to take place at the Department of Materials on 19 June 2019 and you must be available on this date, either by Skype or in person. Please note in normal circumstances only interview travel expenses within the UK will be reimbursed.
