Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) is advertising a “Vice-Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme”. This is a three-year Fellowship period during which you will have a research-focussed workload which will ensure no formal scheduled teaching in Year 1; 50% of typical teaching workload in one semester in Year 2; and 50% of typical teaching workload across full year in Year 3. The Vice-Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme aims to appoint exceptional academics to permanent appointments within the University’s areas of research excellence, which includes Solar and Space Physics. These appointments are being made at every level and so we welcome applications for Professor, Associate Professor, and Assistant Professor in the broad area of Solar and Space Physics. There is the possibility of multiple appointments.
You will join the Solar and Space Physics research group – a successful group pursuing high-international-priority research across the broad remit of Solar and Space Physics, based in the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering. Evidence of the group’s success includes funding from STFC, NERC, Leverhulme Trust, Royal Astronomical Society, the US Air Force, UKSA, and four UKRI Senior Fellows. Further information on the research group can be found here https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/mathematics-physics-and-electrical-engineering/research/solar-and-space-physics/
We particularly welcome hearing from applicants from historically under-represented groups.
You must have relevant subject expertise with specialist knowledge gained through research activity, professional practice or consultancy. You are expected to have a strong publication record that is commensurate with your career stage and research field. At Assistant Professor level, we are seeking a commitment to, and passion for, delivering innovative education at all levels. If you are not already experienced at lecturing, you will be supported by the University to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) either by portfolio or by Post-Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP). At Professor/Associate Professor level, you will assist the Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellor to maintain and enhance the University’s national and international reputation in your academic field. You must demonstrate continuing academic achievement, and provide academic leadership (of your subject and associated colleagues) through active contribution to your discipline and to the life and work of the Faculty and the wider University. This will include contributing to significant change within practice, the discipline, profession and/or community at regional, national and international level. We offer all applicants full guidance on the application process. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Professor James McLaughlin, Head of Group, via email@example.com
