NEW: Permanent position open in our Department!! Lectureship in Soft Matter Grade 7/8

We seek to appoint a highly motivated, research-focused individual as a Lecturer to expand and complement our multi-disciplinary research portfolio in Soft Matter and Complex Fluids in materials processing in The Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering at The University of Liverpool.  You must be able to work within a multi-disciplinary internationally leading vibrant group, which combines the latest developments in soft matter, complex fluids, colloidal processing and 3D printing technology in collaboration with other lead academics and industrial partners. You will undertake research of an international standing and contribute to teaching (undergraduate and postgraduate levels) in the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering.

The appointment will be based on the proven research track record or potential of the candidate.  To strengthen the existing portfolio of activities, we are particularly interested in candidates who have an expertise in Soft Matter (Chemical Engineering/Physics) and/or Advanced Materials Processing to expand and strengthen the research led by Dr García-Tuñón, who holds an UKRI Future Research Leaders Fellowship – Smart formulations for manufacturing of functional three-dimensional hierarchical structures. Dr García-Tuñón is leading a multi-disciplinary research program at the interface between chemistry, materials and engineering.

We value the diversity of our departments and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance and we will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible (a minimum of 0.5 FTE). We are working to improve the gender balance in the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering as well as in the School of Engineering, and we particularly welcome applications from women.
