Job Description

To promote a flexible workforce, the University will consider applications from individuals seeking full time, part time, job share, or term time only working arrangements.


As part of the continued development of Physics and Engineering at Aberystwyth University, we are looking to appoint a Lecturer in Radio Spectrum Physics and Engineering, with appropriate expertise and experience to develop an independent research programme, to contribute to the department’s teaching and research portfolio and to develop new master’s level provision in Radio Spectrum Physics.

The successful candidate will enjoy considerable scope to shape the direction of the scheme in line with their expertise. They would be joining a diverse, vibrant and dynamic department that focuses on delivering high quality teaching and research with impact.

The successful candidate will also contribute to the development of the new National Spectrum Centre that will research, develop and test the next generation of spectrum-dependent systems and applications needed by the UK, whilst creating new high value jobs for Wales. The aim of this new facility for the UK is to create an ecosystem between government, industry and academia to train the next generation of scientists and engineers.

The post is initially fixed-term for one year with a focus on the development of master’s level provision through a new MSc in Radio Spectrum Physics and Engineering. The successful candidate will also be responsible for developing, maintaining and delivering their own area of research within the remit of the department and faculty, and also seek external funding.

The successful candidate will be an educator and researcher with experience of teaching within Higher Education, and hold a PhD in a relevant area of physics or engineering.
