We are building the university of the future. We are doing this through empowering and creating opportunity for all our students and staff so as they may learn, discover and enrich society locally, nationally and internationally. Our success is demonstrated by many accolades, including a TEF Gold Award, the THE University of the Year for 2017, The Times and The Sunday Times Modern University of the Year in 2018, a top-20 position in the 2019 Guardian University League Table, and a top-5 position in England for overall satisfaction in the latest National Student Survey.
The School of Science and Technology at NTU is a dynamic, diverse school with an outstanding reputation in teaching and a fast growing reputation in research and innovation. It is composed of six departments that span the sciences, including the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Sports Sciences, both of which are home to substantial activity of relevance to this post. The School is home to around 4,500 students, including around 500 MSc and 150 PhD students, and nearly 350 staff in substantive posts.
More than 9 out of every 10 of our final year students recommend studying for a degree at NTU. The School’s outstanding reputation in teaching is also reflected in its standing in the National Student Survey. Eight of the School’s programmes achieved 100% satisfaction in the most recent NSS, and five of its subject areas are in the top 10 of their field. An extensive ongoing building programme at the Clifton campus means the School is now home to numerous state-of-the-art teaching laboratories and other learning and teaching facilities.
The School has long been a critical part of NTU’s research and innovation powerbase, and the Biosciences have been at the heart of this. The excellence of its research is reflected in a Queen’s Anniversary Prize awarded to NTU in 2015. It is also the home of the multimillion pound-endowed John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, the newly established £24M Medical Technologies Innovation Facility, and the soon-to-be-established Institute for Digital Innovation, which will be based in the new £23M Engineering Building that is currently under construction at the Clifton Campus.
The Professor in Metabolic Health role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the leadership of the School of Science and Technology as it delivers on its bold vision for the future. You will have a clear, compelling vision for your field and be able to bring together others around this to create a major world-leading programme of research and innovation in metabolic health or related area. You will also contribute to the leadership of the University more widely and teaching within the biosciences.
So talk to us, tell us of a bold future you’d like to build and we will give you the support to make it happen.
