School of Chemistry

Location:  Brayford
Salary:   From £16,000 pro rata
Please be advised that this post is available full time for one year or part time 18.5 hours per week for two years.
Closing Date:   Monday 31 August 2015

The University of Lincoln has established the Back to Science Programme to provide an opportunity for both women and men in STEMM subject areas, who have taken extended career breaks, to join an established research group, build confidence and gain contemporary research experience.

You will join an established research group, developing a research project under the guidance and supervision of an experienced academic. The aim of the post is to provide a sound platform designed to help kick-start careers, providing opportunities for researchers to develop independent research projects, funding applications and research publications, or undertake further study.

As well as developing your research, you will participate in an integrated training and development programme to build up key transferable skills, complementing the research training gained during the year.  You will have the opportunity to help shape and influence the trajectory of the training programme.

The post is part of the University’s Athena SWAN project 2014-17 and you will be based in the College of Science, which currently consists of seven Schools; Chemistry, Computer Science, Life Sciences, Pharmacy, Engineering, the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, and Mathematics and Physics.

If you would like to know more about this exciting opportunity, please contact Prof Belinda Colston, Professor of Analytical Chemistry and Cultural Heritage(

You are encouraged to make contact with a University of Lincoln academic member of staff to discuss potential areas of research and specific project ideas, and to build a short research proposal (based upon a modest budget of £5,000) which forms part of the application process and therefore must be submitted before the closing date. Please contact Prof Belinda Colston who will put you in touch with the relevant person.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city.

Please be advised that candidates for this post will need to be eligible to work in the United Kingdom as sponsorship is unlikely to be available for this post.

The closing date for this job opportunity has now passed, and applications are no longer being accepted for this position
