University Lectureship in Biological/Biomedical Physics

The University has made a major investment in biological/medical and soft matter physics with the building up of a new research activity in the Department of Physics (including new laboratories), the appointment of a Herchel Smith Professor of the Physics of Medicine, and the recent appointments of several lecturers in experimental soft matter and bio-medical physics. Applications for a further appointment in this broad area are now invited.

Applicants should have a PhD and a strong track record in relevant research together with successful teaching experience. An experimentalist is preferred who will develop a programme that fits within this broad area, either spanning the interface between physics and biology/clinical medicine or in the general field of soft matter with an interest in biology, in either case complementing current research activities.

The appointment will be for a probationary period of five years, with appointment to the retiring age thereafter, subject to satisfactory performance. Further details of the posts can be found at

Applications, including a curriculum vitae; a statement (up to six pages) of research experience to date and of research plans for the future; and a completed CHRIS/6 application cover sheet ( ) Parts I and III only, should be sent by email to the Head of Department's Office (email, to arrive no later than Friday 2 March. Candidates should ask their three referees to write directly on their behalf to the Head of Department, Professor James Stirling, (email by Friday 2 March.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
