The Department will be making four new appointments for the academic years 2012-13 and 2013-14. These have been made possible by success in external funding competitions that has brought new income to the Department, including funded research leave and/or remission from undergraduate teaching for Professor Tim Cresswell (AHRC) and Dr Pete Adey (Leverhume Trust)
Formal details of the posts and application procedure can be found at https://rhul.engageats.co.uk
The closing date is 24th June 2012.
