Unestablished Lecturer (Fixed Term)

The Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy invites applications for a University Lectureship in Device Materials to develop oxide thin-film manufacturing technology / new processing methodology for non-volatile memory.

The funds for this post are available for 5 years in the first instance. The Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy invites applications for a University Lectureship in Device Materials, following the award of a Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies to Professor Judith Driscoll to develop oxide thin film manufacturing technology / new processing methodology for non-volatile memory. The Lectureship will support the research programme of the Chair, department teaching and administrative activities, and therefore the ability to teach a range of materials science topics, especially in the device materials area at undergraduate and postgraduate level, is essential. This work will likely include the delivery of existing courses, and the development of new teaching materials, lecture courses, examinations, laboratory classes and administration. You should hold a PhD in Materials Science (or a cognate discipline) and have a strong record of relevant research. You will join us with relevant experience in the device materials field and ideally have experience in more than one of the following areas: oxide film growth, memristors, memory materials, thin film device fabrication, electrical testing, materials characterisation. The funds for this post are available for 5 years in the first instance but a further 5 years of funding may be possible depending on a successful mid-term review by the Royal Academy. This Lectureship will be based at the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy.

It is anticipated that shortlisted applicants will be invited to Cambridge in mid-to-late September 2019 to give a presentation and formal interview. The lectureship is available from 1st October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

 

For informal enquiries please contact the Head of Department, Professor Paul Midgley, pam33@cam.ac.uk or Professor Judith Driscoll, jld35@cam.ac.uk

Please quote reference LJ20051 on your application and in any correspondence about this vacancy.
