Departmental Lecturer in the Department of Physics, Clarendon Laboratory and at Lady Margaret Hall

The department of Physics is looking to recruit a Departmental Lecturer to teach at Lady Margaret Hall.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 5 years and is part time working 6 hours a week averaged over the three six-week teaching Terms during the appointment.

The role is to engage in advanced study and primarily lecture and teach undergraduate and graduate students, and to conduct independent research in ultra-high intensity lasers, laboratory astrophysics, and/or beyond the standard model searches (broadly defined). The ideal candidate may also be involved in planning, setting up or executing experiments at high-power lasers and/or x-ray Free Electron lasers, perform data analysis (with appropriate computational methods) and/or develop new computational models where needed.

The successful candidate will undertake advanced academic study to underpin lectures and class teaching and provide tutorial or class-style teaching to undergraduates of the College. They will supervise undergraduate and/or conduct practical classes using laboratory or workshop equipment and share responsibility for the teaching of Physics within LMH, and contribute to the general oversight and organization of Physics teaching within the College.

As a secondary commitment alongside teaching, they will manage their own academic research activities and write research articles for peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, and reviews, and give poster presentations or briefings to disseminate research findings at conferences.

The successful candidate will also liaise with examiners and academic staff regarding teaching arrangements and student performance, and with funding bodies, stakeholders, and researchers in related fields to share information and expertise.

Applicants should hold a relevant postgraduate qualification (preferably a doctorate) and have experience in teaching and research.
