The School of Physics, University of Bristol seeks outstanding candidates for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in experimental condensed matter physics. We are particularly interested to complement our existing strengths in either “soft, active or biological materials” or “quantum materials”. Current research includes studies of high temperature superconductivity, novel metal oxides, self-assembly, slow dynamics and active matter systems. Our key experimental techniques include x-ray/neutron/light scattering, super-resolution optical microscopy, the use of low-temperatures/high magnetic fields and materials growth and characterisation. There is a strong experimental and theoretical community in condensed matter physics across the Science Faculty.

The successful candidate will establish an internationally leading independent research programme and deliver excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. They will also demonstrate a strong commitment to securing grant funding. An appointment may be made at the Lectureship/Senior Lectureship/Reader level, depending on the experience and calibre of the candidate.

Both the School and University are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment as set out in our equality, diversity and inclusions pages. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities, especially from women and other groups currently under-represented in academic posts.

The closing date for application is 30 April 2019.

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to Prof. Stephen Hayden (s.hayden@bristol.ac.uk) and Prof. C. Patrick Royall (chcpr@bristol.ac.uk).

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
