Applications are invited for a permanent Lectureship in Sport and Exercise Nutrition in the division of Food, Nutrition and Public Health. FNPH is a dynamic and growing group part of the Department of Life Sciences based at the New Cavendish Street site.  

We have a successful portfolio of three main course areas: BSc Human Nutrition, MSc Sport and Exercise Nutrition and MSc Global Public Health Nutrition.

We want to recruit an ambitious individual who is able to thrive in a research-led environment, whilst being committed to delivering high-quality teaching/administration activities. We benefit from excellent purpose built laboratories for teaching, research and consultancy to support the student experience across the levels. The successful candidate will also contribute to research and income generating activities across the department through collaborative applications to existing research programmes and contributing to the Human Performance Laboratory client consultation platform.


The successful applicant is required to hold a PhD in a relevant area, up-to-date specialist knowledge in a relevant area, a recognised academic research profile and a record of involvement in applications for external funding for research and knowledge transfer. Furthermore, experience of involvement in research projects and teams, a significant publication record reaching recognised international standards, a REF profile appropriate to your career stage and ideally membership of a relevant professional body. If English is not first language, evidence of IELTS English assessment with a score of 7.0 in each component (or equivalent) is essential.
