The School of Applied Sciences is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Analytical Toxicology.
The successful candidate will utilise previous experience of service or academic delivery in this area drawing upon their knowledge and abilities in analytical toxicology, laboratory-based quality management systems and data interpretation and reporting processes to successfully design, coordinate, and deliver modules and extensive practical experience to undergraduate and postgraduate students specifically in this and related subject areas. Previous experience of an industry/working environment in these areas is essential. Candidates will also be expected to have experience of the use of analytical instrumentation used in the field of analytical toxicology, a deep understanding of the science of toxicology, specimens and standard operating procedures used in the field, plus laboratory regulation and governance processes with the ability to train students across the academic levels.
As a Senior Lecturer at USW, the successful candidate will be expected to develop learning materials and research in line with professional body requirements, the successful candidate’s own experience, and through engaging with external organisations and companies to secure opportunities for research and student learning. The role will also require delivery of training in a wider range of common analytical techniques such as chromatographic and spectroscopic analysis, particularly related to forensic and criminal investigation, but also to students in other related subject areas.
The successful candidate will also assume the responsibilities of Course Leadership of our flagship BSc/MSci Forensic Science course acting as a figurehead both internally and externally with overall responsibility for the recruitment, retention, progression, personal development and employability of students as well as quality and quality assurance monitoring of the course. Therefore, previous experience in the above or in a related capacity is desirable as is the knowledge and understanding of quality and standards in this field of education.
The successful candidate would be expected to be involved in Research and Scholarly Activity, and this engagement would deliver evidence, practice and research-based learning within the curriculum, and produce research-based outputs (e.g. research articles, publication proceedings etc). It would be anticipated that the candidate would engage with one or both of the School of Applied Sciences’ Research Groups in Physical and Analytical Sciences and Biological Sciences and seek to collaborate internally and externally on relevant projects.
The successful candidate will join a team of academic staff and current and ex-forensic practitioners in the Forensic and Analytical Science subject area, who are involved in the education and skills-based training of a large number of students who are aiming to enter the world of work as forensic scientists or within roles in the criminal justice system, and work closely with colleagues in the academic subject area of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science.
This position is based at the Pontypridd (Glyntaff) Campus of the University of South Wales.
The terms and conditions of the post (including grade and salary) will be those of the University of South Wales.
START DATE: This post is likely to commence in January 2020 but may be available for commencement earlier.
