  • Candidates must be able to demonstrate that their research has publication potential in top level journals. The Department values ‘quality over quantity’. The successful candidate will be an engaged academic who enjoys working in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment and shows enthusiasm for collaborating with colleagues within the department and across disciplines.
