Applications are invited for the post of Associate Professor of Materials to be held in the Department of Materials, with effect from 1 September 2024 or soon thereafter.

The successful candidate will work at the Department of Materials and also will be appointed to a Non-Tutorial Fellowship at Keble College. The Department of Materials at Oxford University is a world leader in energy materials, theory and modelling of materials, and microstructural and nanoscale characterisation of materials, as well as sub-stantial activities across a range of materials systems and technologies. 

The Zero Institute was recently formed in Oxford to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon energy system (see  The foundation of the institute includes new academic posts in the departments of Materials, Engineering Science and Geography, and as one of six initial appoint-ments (and the second within the Department of Materials) this offers a significant opportunity to help shape the direction of this new initiative. The envisaged post has a particular focus on zero-carbon energy conversion and storage, with any research direction within this field considered, espe-cially materials considerations of hydrogen and related energy carriers.  We are seeking an exception-al candidate, who will complement our existing activities in the department of Materials, and who will contribute to strengthening our teaching and research. The successful candidate will have a doctorate in materials science or a closely related subject, and will have a record of internationally excellent re-search, supported by strong publications commensurate with their career stage.

The successful candidate will be required: to build an independent research group, consistent with the department’s strategy that produces research outputs of the highest international quality, to dis-seminate that research; to engage in knowledge transfer activities; to teach, supervise and examine undergraduate and postgraduate research students; and to participate in the administration of the department.

We are a Stonewall Top 100 Employer, Living Wage employer, holding an Athena Swan Bronze Award and Race Equality Charter Bronze Award.

All applicants will be judged on merit, according to the selection criteria.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 22nd April 2024.

Interviews are expected to be held on 11th and 12th June 2024.
