The University is committed to equality of opportunity and to selection on merit.  It welcomes applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as people with disabilities and females are currently under-represented within the Professoriate, it would particularly welcome applications from these groups.

Due to growth within the school we are currently undertaking an ongoing recruitment campaign; therefore expiration date of post advertisement is an estimation.
