The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is seeking to recruit two Associate Professorships. The first 3 years of these permanent appointments will be a Research Leader Fellowship with an opportunity to drive our research programmes.

These Research Leader Fellowships will be focused on delivery of high-quality research and will be focused on your development. They include executive coaching, senior mentoring and leadership training, a £30k per annum research acceleration fund and a significant reduction in teaching requirements for across the first 3 years. We want you to succeed and will provide all of the support needed to achieve your very best.

You will make a positive contribution to fostering the collegial environment and leadership within the department and university and have a strong desire to support the leadership and professional development of others.

Currently highly ranked in the UK for Chemical and Environmental Engineering, we are part of a multidisciplinary Faculty of Engineering with a vision for excellent research aligning with the themes of zero carbon, manufacturing, healthcare, energy, built environment, transport and, all underpinned by the need to achieve a sustainable world.

We are collaborative and supportive, determined to meet the most demanding chemical and environmental engineering challenges that the planet faces. You will be joining a highly multidisciplinary environment where collaboration between Faculty staff, students and external stakeholders is key to the successful delivery of our curriculum and research impacts.

You should have a growing national and international reputation for your research excellence within your discipline with the potential, with our support, to go on and deliver significant impact.

Your research will align and integrate with our themes and research activities, strive to be innovative and impactful, and you will develop national and international networks, working with the best teams, producing high quality outputs and communicating to researchers and the public alike, whilst securing external research funding.

Your vision and focus will support our goals in making the University of Nottingham where Chemical and Environmental Engineering changes the world. More information on our faculty research activities can be found here ( ).

An integral part of your future role, after the first 3 years, will be developing your passion for world-class teaching and curriculum leadership in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. You will ultimately need to be able to deliver and supervise teaching and learning activities in a CEE laboratory environment.

You will need to work proactively with colleagues, Directors of Education and Student Experience, and a wider educational team to design, develop and deliver high-quality teaching and learning experiences and you will be a clear and confident communicator with the ability to engage and inspire students and colleagues across the Faculty. 

You will be educated to first degree or PhD level in a discipline such that you are comfortable contributing broadly across our programmes and have the ability to provide engineering context to your teaching.

Within our diverse department where, for example over 1/3 of staff and students are women, we look for colleagues who hold to University of Nottingham values of inclusivity, ambition, openness, fairness and respect: you will put the development of a positive research and teaching culture at the heart of everything you do.
