Lectureship (Assistant Professor) in Experimental Atmospheric Chemistry


5 March 2024 - 9 April 2024


The University of Leeds is an internationally leading institution at the forefront of innovative research and education in Chemistry and adjacent disciplines. Our vision is to deliver innovative research and distinctive education programmes that align with the most pressing issues facing global society, and to help realise a sustainable and healthy future for all. We are now seeking to recruit four new academic staff who will lead research programmes aligned with these pressing challenges; and contribute to our taught undergraduate and postgraduate education programmes that focus on chemistry and addressing global challenges.

We are now seeking to recruit a Lecturer who will use an experimental approach to understand the fundamentals of chemical processes within Earth’s atmosphere. This may involve basic research and applications of the kinetics, dynamics, and spectroscopy of species within reactive media in the gas and condensed phases or at interfaces.

By joining us, you will be part of a dynamic team that is leading international developments in understanding the chemistry of the Earth’s atmosphere. You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities, encompassing laboratory, chamber, and field instrumentation, within a collaborative interdisciplinary research environment that encourages creativity and exploration. Additionally, you will contribute to the education of the next generation of chemists and interdisciplinary scientists, making a lasting impact on the field. You will be supported through a dedicated start-up fund, access to our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, and engaged mentorship. We look forward to welcoming a passionate and dedicated colleague who will help us to continue our mission of making, understanding, and exploiting discoveries in atmospheric Chemistry. There must be a clear vision as to how your research would complement and enhance existing research activity in the School of Chemistry.
