We are seeking an individual with a strong track record of income generation and high-quality research publications.

You will be supported in the role to further develop your own academic career in your identified academic pathway (Learning & Teaching, enterprise, research or professional practice) through access to a range of resources available to all University staff and through a coaching approach to personal development.
