The College of Science and Engineering/Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh is seeking a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (depending on experience) in the broad area of Marine Science.

The Opportunity:

This post is full-time (35 hours per week), however, the university is open to considering part-time or flexible working patterns and requests for hybrid working (on a non-contractual basis) that combines a mix of remote and regular on-campus working.

The university wishes to attract researchers with expertise in areas such as marine remote sensing, autonomous vehicles, moored instrumental arrays and/or ship-based observations, sampling with relevant and related data analysis and modelling skills with the view to understanding large-scale marine processes, cycles and fluxes, and/or the cumulative impacts of climate and environmental change along our coastlines and oceans that have societal relevance. The post holder will complement a strong team of multidisciplinary scientists with School expertise already spanning marine ecology and conservation, marine biogeochemistry, remote sensing, and palaeoceanography. Post holders will benefit from in house state-of-the-art oceanographic and remote sensing analytical and computing facilities and infrastructure, and links to our world-leading Bayes Centre data-science and artificial intelligence collaborative hub.

The successful candidate is expected to design and lead a portfolio of world class research in their respective field, contribute to knowledge exchange, participate in enhancing the collegial environment and inclusive ethos fostered by the School. The post holder is expected to teach, design, and lead a portfolio of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and demonstrate leadership through academic supervision and related administrative duties. Many opportunities exist for wider disciplinary linkages with other research horizons in the School, e.g. human and physical geography, earth sciences, as well as the broader University, such as in biology, maths, engineering, law and the humanities.

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • A track record of high-quality publications in the broad area of Marine Science.
  • A track record of research grant income, or strong potential depending on career stage.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • A commitment to high-quality teaching.
  • A commitment to collaborative working and collegiality across disciplines.

Application Documents:

  • CV
  • Cover Letter
  • Teaching Statement
  • Research Statement

Competitive salary:

  • Lecturer: UE08 £45,585 to £54,395 per annum (A revised salary range for this grade of £48,350 to £59,421 is planned to take effect from Spring 2024)
  • Senior Lecturer: UE09 £57,696 to £64,914 per annum (A revised salary range for this grade of £61,198 to £75,498 is planned to take effect from Spring 2024)
