Applications are invited for an appointment as Lecturer above the bar in Optical Instrumentation at NUI Galway.

The School of Physics offers BSc programmes (including options in Applied physics, Astrophysics, and Biomedical physics), MSc programmes (in Astronomical Instrumentation, Key Enabling Technologies, Medical Physics, and Occupational and Environmental Health & Safety), and PhD programmes (in Astrophysics, Atmospheric Physics, Biophotonics, Biomedical Physics, Exposure Science, Laser-enabled Manufacturing, Marine Physics, and Nanomaterials).

The School is seeking applications from suitably qualified candidates with a strong background in physics for the position of a lecturer above the bar. The successful candidate must have a proven ability to teach across many areas of our undergraduate physics programmes. The successful applicant will carry out their own research programmes in an area related to optical instrumentation aligned with the School's MSc programmes. Preference will be given to those candidates who are considered well-placed to develop externally funded research contracts that leverage existing research strengths in the School. For consideration as a lecturer above the bar, a considerable impact of independent research achievements in optical instrumentation is expected.

The School actively promotes equality and diversity throughout all of its activities and recruitment. To this end, the School welcomes applications for this permanent position from candidates on either a full- or half-time basis. When applying for the position candidates must clearly state whether they are applying for a full- or half-time post; candidates may not apply for both full time or half time positions.

The School will fill the position on the basis of merit with the most suitable single full-time or half-time applicant being offered the post.

The School of Physics has been awarded ‘Practitioner’ status of the Institute of Physics’ Juno Project, hence the School welcomes applications from suitably qualified female candidates.

The closing date for applications is 3rd August 2017.

Informal enquiries can be made to the Dr. Gerard O'Connor, Head of School, Physics, NUI Galway, Ireland. Tel +353 91492513, Gerard.oconnor@nuigalway.ie
