Anniversary Research Lectureships - Permanent career path for outstanding post-doctoral researchers

Posted on 1 March 2012

The Department is seeking to recruit an Anniversary Research Lecturer

The University of York is creating up to twenty new Anniversary Research Lectureships. These posts are aimed at providing outstanding post-doctoral researchers with an opportunity for an extended period of research and a permanent career path.

Anniversary Research Lecturers will spend a three-year period establishing a strong personal research profile, followed by a transfer to an established academic post, comprising teaching and research.

We anticipate that competition for Anniversary Research Lectureships will be intense. Successful candidates will have concrete plans for generating research income and are likely to have demonstrated several of the following achievements:

1.      First-authored publications in the 3*/4* REF bands.

2.      Evidence of achievement as an independent researcher (fellowships, grants, prizes, invitations to speak at international conferences).

3.      Evidence of potential for excellence in teaching and supervision of students.

4.      The ability to pursue a distinct line of research which will enhance the work of one of the Department’s established research groups.

5.      Intellectual maturity and leadership potential.
