We are seeking to recruit, a Reader in Physics within the School of Science and Engineering at the University of Dundee. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, enthusiastic and collegiate individual with an excellent research and funding record, with experience of delivering high-quality undergraduate courses. We will consider candidates with less experience; appointment at the Senior Lecturer or Lecturer level is also possible. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Physics, or a related discipline, and will contribute to the teaching of physics and maintain, or develop, a vigorous independent, experimental research programme. Current strengths within the School include biophysics, especially biophotonics, soft matter physics and computational biophysics; laser-matter interactions; nano and functional materials including energy; electronic, optical materials and devices; photonics, including complex photonics and laser development; space technologies; solar physics and astrophysics. We are particularly looking for a candidate working within the broad area of photonics, for example complex photonics, biophotonics, soft-matter photonics, nanophotonics, or laser development. We deliver single and joint honours MSci and BSc courses in Physics and the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching on these programmes.
The role is full-time and permanent. Closing date for receipt of applications: Monday, 21 August 2017. Interviews will be held on 26th September 2017.
