University Lectureship in Biological/Biomedical Physics

The University has made a major investment in biological/medical and soft matter physics with the building up of a new research activity in the Department of Physics (including new laboratories), the appointment of a Herchel Smith Professor of the Physics of Medicine, and the recent appointments of several lecturers in experimental soft matter and bio-medical physics. Applications for a further appointment in this broad area are now invited.

Applicants should have a PhD and a strong track record in relevant research together with successful teaching experience. An experimentalist is preferred who will develop a programme that fits within this broad area, either spanning the interface between physics and biology/clinical medicine or in the general field of soft matter with an interest in biology, in either case complementing current research activities.

The appointment will be for a probationary period of five years, with appointment to the retiring age thereafter, subject to satisfactory performance. Further details of the posts can be found at

Applications, including a curriculum vitae; a statement (up to six pages) of research experience to date and of research plans for the future; and a completed CHRIS/6 application cover sheet ( ) Parts I and III only, should be sent by email to the Head of Department's Office (email, to arrive no later than Friday 2 March. Candidates should ask their three referees to write directly on their behalf to the Head of Department, Professor James Stirling, (email by Friday 2 March.
