Job Description

We are building the University of the future. We are doing this through empowering and creating opportunity for all our students and staff so as they may learn, discover and enrich society locally, nationally and internationally. Our success is demonstrated by many accolades, including The Guardian University of the Year for 2019, The Times and The Sunday Times Modern University of the Year in 2018 and the THE University of the Year for 2017.

The School of Science and Technology is a dynamic, diverse school with an outstanding reputation in teaching and a fast-growing reputation in research and innovation. The School is composed of six departments that span the biological, mathematical, physical and sports sciences. It is home to around 4,500 students, including around 500 MSc and 150 PhD students, and nearly 350 staff in substantive posts.

The School has long been a critical part of NTU’s research and innovation powerbase. The excellence of its research is reflected in the Queen’s Anniversary Prize awarded to NTU in 2015. It is also the home of the multimillion-pound endowed John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, the newly established £24M Medical Technologies Innovation Facility, and the soon-to-be-established Institute for Digital Innovation, based in the new £23M Engineering Building at the Clifton Campus. These developments are part of an extensive ongoing building programme at the Clifton campus so that the School is now home to multiple state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories and facilities.

The Associate Dean for Research role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the leadership of the School of Science and Technology as it delivers on its bold vision for the future. You will have primary responsibility for leading the formation and delivery of the School’s research strategy. As a member of the School senior management team, you will also contribute more widely to the leadership of the School and University. As a Professor you will continue to undertake a substantive world-leading programme of research in a field relevant to the School.

So, talk to us, tell us of a bold future you’d like to build, and we will give you the support to make it happen.
