The salary will be paid at Professorial Grade, £66,084 to £82,837 per annum, inclusive of £3,223 per annum London Allowance.

This post will be permanent.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.

The Department of Physics is seeking to appoint a Professor in Experimental Biophysics to undertake internationally leading research in the area of Biological and/or Soft matter Physics and take a lead role in the delivery of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The appointee will have research interests in experimental biophysics with the aim of consolidating and diversifying existing research within the Department, which currently includes experimental work in super-resolution imaging; fluorescence microscopy; Raman spectroscopy; and single molecule mechanics, combined with coarse-grained and all-atom simulations. To this end, the areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, cell mechanics, molecular motors, natural and naturally-inspired molecular machines, biophysical chemistry, biomimetic materials, bio-inspired engineering and biomechanics. 

The successful candidate will be expected to work alongside colleagues to develop an internationally-competitive, innovative research programme. They should have a high-quality and growing research profile with an excellent publication record, international esteem and, where appropriate, evidence of research funding.

We particularly welcome applications from female and black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented in the University at this level.

The selection process will include a panel interview, an assessment, a presentation.
