Applications are sought for three academic positions at the level of Lecturer to Professor in Analytical/Separation Science and Engineering in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Manchester. These posts are associated with the establishment of the industry led initiative – CAMS (Community for Analytical and Measurement Science) of which the University of Manchester is a Tier one academic member. CAMS represents a large consortium of partners in an industrial led activity mainly from the chemical and biomedical industries and aims to give a central platform to UK and Irish activities in analytical and measurement science. It is anticipated that these strategic appointments will be in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.

We seek outstanding individuals whose research is driven by analytical challenges. The academic and industrial members of CAMS have prioritised four thematic areas namely: Complex Mixtures Separations and Detection; Data Analytics; Point of Use Sensors and Photonics; and Novel Instrumentation in which there is an urgent skills gap and need for innovation. We welcome applications from candidates whose research and teaching strengths are in Analytical/Separation Science and Engineering, and expect at least one of the appointments to contribute to the development of teaching material for a new distance learning course in Analytical Science at MSc level, with an emphasis of data analysis and curation. Areas of particular interest include, separation science, microfluidics, mass spectrometry, proteomics, metabolomics, instrument development, electrochemistry, solid state NMR spectroscopy, sensors and diagnostics and in all aspects of analytical data science, data mining and chemometrics.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering has world leading research in Analytical/Separation Science and Engineering including in mass spectrometry electrochemical sensors, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance, spectroscopy, chemical sensing. Beyond the Schools of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering there are very strong links in this area to research within the School of Earth and Environmental Science, the School of Physics, the School of Materials and to the Faculty of Biology Medicine and Health. There is also strong interconnectivity with research institutes within the university, especially the Manchester Institute for Biotechnology, the Photon Science Institute, and the Royce Institute.

Salary and a competitive start-up package are by negotiation, with scope to fully recognise applicants of the very highest standing. These posts are advertised as full-time, but a part-time appointment may be considered.
