The Department of Physics seeks to appoint a full-time Lecturer to enhance and complement our thriving activities in theoretical condensed matter physics. We are looking for candidates with an outstanding research profile in areas such as strongly correlated systems, low-dimensional materials, quantum transport, electronic properties of materials, or subjects related to quantum optics and quantum information.

You must have a strong track record to conduct original and innovative research, have a portfolio of high-quality research publications, and demonstrate excellent teaching abilities, including the potential to supervise postgraduate students.

You should have a record of, and potential for, attracting research funding from a range of sources, and are expected to be able to participate and take a leading role in group and institutional grant applications.

Lancaster University is a leading UK University. The Physics Department is widely recognised for its strength in research (the 2nd highest fraction of world-leading 4* research outputs in REF2014 and top-ranked overall in RAE2008) and teaching (ranked 2nd by the Guardian for entry 2016). The Department has a core complement of 40 members of academic staff and a thriving community of post-doctoral researchers and PhD students. The Department is very well resourced, providing access to state-of-the art laboratories and computing facilities, and benefits from recent large scale investments into its research and teaching infrastructure.
