Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw (DKO) Fellowship – The University of Manchester at Harwell (2 posts available)

Salary: £36,024-£56,021 per annum (depending on experience)

Faculty/Organisational Unit: Science and Engineering

Location: The University of Manchester at Harwell

Employment type: Fixed Term, 60 Months

Closing date: 28/05/2024

One of the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s flagship schemes for investing in Early Career Researchers and increasing the diversity of our staff is the Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Fellowship (DKOs). These represent a strategic investment in outstanding researchers who will shape our future research portfolio. The Fellowship is an excellent stepping stone to establishing an independent research career and gaining a full time permanent academic position. In 2024 we plan to appoint DKOs associated with our strategic partnership with the central facilities based on the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire including the Diamond Light Source and the ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility. The strategic areas of interest for these fellowships are associated with the use of these facilities in understanding:

  • Catalytic processes
  • Quantum materials
  • Magnetic materials
  • Formulation science and engineering.

As well as these specific areas of science and engineering, there is a strong desire to develop further capability in:

  • Imaging
  • Photoelectron emission
  • Scattering
  • In situ/operando environments
  • Scientific computing.

These areas should be regarded as a guide to where we anticipate making appointments; however, outstanding candidates in science and engineering who are outside of these areas will also be considered and are encouraged to apply.

The University actively fosters a culture of inclusion and diversity and seeks to achieve true equality of opportunity for all members of its community. The Faculty welcomes applications from all sections of the community and are committed to having a representative workforce. Across the Schools we hold Bronze and Silver Athena SWAN Awards, which recognise our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and particularly the advancement of women’s education and careers in STEM.

The University also holds a Bronze Race Charter Mark recognising our commitment to improving the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education. In addition, we are a Disability Confident Employer, guaranteeing an interview for any disabled applicant who meets the minimum requirements for a job.
