The University is committed to equality of opportunity and has a policy on arrangements for part-time work.
Applications are invited for the following University offices:
Appointments made at University Lecturer level will be for three or five years in the first instance, with the possibility of reappointment to the retiring age. The pensionable scale of stipends for a University Lecturer is £20,811 a year, rising by eleven annual increments to £32,095.
Appointments made at University Assistant Lecturer level will be for three years, with the possibility of reappointment for a further two years. The statutory limit of tenure of a University Assistant Lectureship is five years, but all holders of the office of University Assistant Lecturer are considered for possible appointment to the office of University Lecturer during the course of their tenure. The pensionable scale of stipends for a University Assistant Lecturer is £17,238 a year, rising by six annual increments to £22,579.
Two University Lecturers or University Assistant Lecturers in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. Applications are invited from candidates with very strong personal research records and commitment to teaching in the mathematical sciences. It is expected that the first of these positions will be filled within the numerical analysis area. The second position is open to candidates with research interests in any branch of applied mathematics and theoretical physics, with some overlap with the interests and research agenda of current DAMTP staff; these include high-energy particle physics, cosmology, relativity, mathematical astronomy and astrophysics, wave theory, and fluid mechanics. Teaching responsibilities will include delivery of undergraduate and graduate courses and supervision of graduate students. Both posts are available from 1 October 2000.
Further particulars are available from Professor D. G. Crighton, FRS, Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Silver Street, Cambridge, CB3 9EW (tel. 01223 337860, fax 01223 312984, e-mail email@example.com), or see the Department's website (http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/vacancy/jobs.html).
Applications (twelve copies), including a curriculum vitae, a publications list, a one-page research statement, and the full names, addresses, telephone/fax numbers, and e-mail addresses of three academic referees, should be sent to Professor Crighton by 31 March 2000. Applicants should indicate which of the two positions they wish to be considered for.
University Lecturer or University Assistant Lecturer in Structural Engineering, to take up appointment on 1 October 2000 or as soon as possible thereafter. The post will be held in the Civil Engineering Division of the Engineering Department, and preference will be given to applicants with a research interest and design experience in steel structures.
The Department has an international research reputation in structural engineering, founded on the research of Professors Baker and Heyman on plastic theory, and currently continued by Professor Calladine on shells and buckling, Drs Morley, Burgoyne, and Lees on composite structures and concrete, Dr Middleton and Mr McRobie on bridges, reliability theory, and structural dynamics, and Drs Pellegrino and Guest on deployable structures. The successful candidate will have, or be expected to develop, a record of world class research commensurate with the Department's international standing and 5*A research rating. Applicants should have design and research experience, should preferably be Chartered Engineers, and should be prepared to take an active part in the Department's research as well as teaching of the four-year undergraduate course.
University Lecturer or University Assistant Lecturer in Mechanics (with an emphasis on Dynamics), to be held in the Mechanics, Materials, and Design Division of the Department of Engineering. The successful candidate will have a higher degree and an active record of excellence in research. Expertise in experimental methods and instrumentation would be particularly welcome, and research interests in one or more of the following areas would be an advantage: (i) the mechanics of transport systems; (ii) machine elements; (iii) impact dynamics; (iv) micro-electro-mechanical systems. The person appointed will be expected to play a full part in the teaching of the four-year undergraduate course leading to the B.A. and M.Eng. Degrees and in the supervision of graduate students.
University Lecturer or University Assistant Lecturer in Nanotechnology, within the Electrical Division of the Engineering Department. Nanotechnology is one of the key technologies which underpins the future development of advanced devices and device materials. The successful candidate will have a proven research record in an area related to the development of advanced devices or materials. Expertise in one or more of the following would be an advantage: (i) electron beam lithography; (ii) scanned probe microscopy; (iii) molecular electronics; (iv) materials processing; (v) advanced materials for device fabrication; (vi) bio-electronics. The person appointed would be particularly encouraged to establish interdisciplinary research programmes within the Engineering Department and with other University Departments. Current research activity of the relevant groups can be found at http://www2.eng.cam.ac.uk/~nano-www/ and http://www2.eng.cam.ac.uk/~www-edm/.
In each case, further particulars and an application form can be obtained from the Secretary of the Faculty Board of Engineering, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ (tel. 01223 332615, fax 01223 766364, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org), to whom completed application forms and a curriculum vitae should be sent, so as to reach him not later than 24 March 2000.
Applications are invited for a temporary teaching post in the Faculty of History in the field of Twentieth-century British Political History. The appointment will be made from 1 April 2000 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for a fixed term of two years, within the salary range £17,238 to £22,579 (six increments) a year, depending on age and experience. The post is likely to attract a teaching Fellowship at an interested College.
Further particulars are available from the Secretary of the Appointments Committee, Faculty of History, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9EF (tel. 01223 335350, e-mail email@example.com), to whom applications (twelve copies) should be sent so as to reach her by Wednesday, 8 March 2000. No application forms are issued. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, indicating any teaching experience, a list of all important publications and major pieces of unpublished work, and the names of three referees. Candidates should ask their referees to send their reports direct to the Secretary of the Appointments Committee so as to reach her by Wednesday, 8 March 2000. Presentations and interviews will be held on Monday, 20 March 2000.
