Applications are invited for Lecturer/ Senior Lecturer positions in Chemical/Biochemical Engineering within the Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry (CEAC) Group, part of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (EAS). In the case of exceptional candidates, with extensive experience of chemical engineering programmes in the UK HE sector, appointment at a senior level (Senior Lecturer or Reader) will be considered. Three appointments are available.

CEAC is internationally recognised for its thriving world-class research along with the quality of its graduates and record of graduate employability. The Group emphasises the close relationship between chemical engineering and chemistry in both its teaching and research. Principal research areas are in Polymers, Advanced Materials, Catalysis and Bioenergy, encompassed within our two EAS Research Institutes; Aston Institute of Materials Research (AIMR) and the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI). AIMR undertakes multidisciplinary cutting-edge research in biomaterials, polymers, inorganics, nanomaterials and bitumen. EBRI, with its own multi-million pound premises on campus, focuses on biomass, bioenergy and catalysis research for a sustainable future.

You must hold a first degree in Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering or an appropriate Science related discipline and a PhD in a Chemical/Biochemical Engineering related field. You will participate fully in the teaching duties of the Group as well as in its research activity.   

You can be in the early stages of your academic career but you must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching, and also evidence of high quality research in Chemical or Biochemical Engineering areas with a clear ambition to develop an internationally recognised research activity. 

Candidates with an ability to teach Process Control, Process Design or Biochemical/Bioprocess Engineering  topics at all levels are particularly sought.
