Applications are invited for the following University offices:
Appointments made at University Lecturer level will be for an initial period of three or five years, with the possibility of reappointment to the retiring age. The pensionable scale of stipends for a University Lecturer is £22,299 a year, rising by eleven annual increments to £34,390.
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 £19,486 a year, rising by six annual increments to £24,193.
A University Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology is required to take up appointment on 16 January 2002, or as soon as possible thereafter. The successful applicant will assume responsibility for teaching clinical pharmacology, therapeutics, and toxicology in the Department. Currently, this involves formal lectures and seminars. Pharmacology is taught by the Department of Pharmacology in the pre-clinical course and the person appointed would be expected to contribute to this teaching where appropriate. The Lecturer will also be expected to develop an independent research programme within the Centre of Veterinary Science in an appropriate area of interest. There are considerable opportunities for collaboration with both existing research programmes in the Department and elsewhere in the University.
Candidates should have relevant experience, a good research record, and the enthusiasm to expand that research in the Lectureship. They must be Members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons or hold a veterinary degree qualifying them for membership, and should have a Ph.D. Degree or equivalent higher degree. Further professional qualifications such as the Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology would be an added advantage. Preference will be given to those applicants with a track record of research in this area.
Further particulars are available from the Secretary, Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, Madingley Road, Cambridge, CB3 0ES (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org), to whom applications should be sent so as to arrive by Friday, 14 December 2001. A curriculum vitae and a publications list with the names of three referees are required but there is no application form.
A University Lecturer or University Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Physics is required to take up appointment on 1 April 2002, or as soon as possible thereafter, in the areas of experimental and/or theoretical biological physics. Successful candidates are likely to have backgrounds in physics, chemistry, or biology. Biological physics is a priority development area in the Department. Related work is already ongoing in the Optoelectronics, Polymers and Colloids, and Theory of Condensed Matter groups in the Laboratory. These activities have been enhanced by the arrival in Cambridge of Professor C. M. Dobson, who has already established part of his research group in the Cavendish Laboratory. Current areas of interest in biological physics include: single molecule behaviour, femtosecond spectroscopy, membrane structure and function, functional biopolymers, and electron microscopy.
The post is however open to suitably qualified candidates in any area of biological physics, including theoretical studies. It is intended that the successful candidate will play a major role in the co-ordination of biological physics research within the Department, including introducing appropriate undergraduate courses, as well as setting up an independent research programme. In addition, new interdepartmental activities, for example, in nanotechnology, medical physics, and the interplay between biophysics and biochemistry, are being developed which provide additional opportunities for collaboration across the University.
More details of the current research and teaching programme of the Laboratory may be obtained from Professor M. S. Longair, Cavendish Laboratory, Madingley Road, Cambridge, CB3 0HE (email@example.com) and also from the Department's website (http://www.phy.cam.ac.uk/). It is anticipated that some funds will be available to assist individuals to progress their research as rapidly as possible.
Applications (two copies) including a curriculum vitae, a statement (up to six pages) of research experience to date, plus research plans for the future, and addresses of three referees should be sent by 15 January 2002 to Mr P. Aslin, Secretary of the Appointments Committee, Institute of Astronomy, Madingley Road, Cambridge, CB3 0HA.
A suitably qualified person is sought to undertake general duties as a Personnel Consultant in relation to the institutions within the scope of the Council of the School of Technology, and to undertake specific projects, most particularly the development and implementation of policy in respect of Contract Research Staff. Appointment is for a probationary period of three years, with the possibility thereafter of reappointment to the retiring age.
