Liverpool Hope University is a vibrant community with high scholarly standards. We are proud of our past, confident in our present and ambitious for our future. Research is central to our curriculum development and enhancement and all academic staff at the University engage in research. Building upon our REF 2014 submission we are looking with ambition and confidence to the next REF, strengthening even further our research degree programme (PhD and EdD). This developing research expertise builds upon and complements our already well established reputation for excellence in teaching and learning. Our policy is to combine these elements of our work in keeping with the University’s stated academic profile as a research-informed teaching University of distinction. It is in this context that we now seek scholars in a number of areas who will join with us in pursuit of excellence; these opportunities include the post of:
Lecturer in Nutrition
Applications are invited for an outstanding candidate with a broad knowledge and experience of food and nutrition. The successful candidate is required to have a PhD in an appropriate area of nutrition or food science and to be committed to conducting research of a high quality. Registration with the Association for Nutrition (AfN) or demonstration of eligibility of registration is essential.
The appointed Lecturer will make a full contribution to the School of Health Sciences in terms of a demonstrable commitment to teaching, learning, scholarship and research, and associated activities towards supporting a diverse student population, and maximising their potential.
The post holder will be expected to teach on and develop the broad nutrition and food science curriculum at undergraduate and postgraduate level. In line with this, applications are particularly welcomed from individuals who are able to contribute to the teaching of nutrition and food science elements especially with excellent knowledge and understanding of consumer sciences and sensory evaluation of food. Additionally, candidates should be competent and confident in application of the knowledge of dietary guidelines in nutrition especially within the field of new product development. The post holder must therefore be able to contribute to our nutrition and food science teaching including development of laboratory practical sessions, for instance, within the area of sensory analysis, nutritional biochemistry, nutrient profiling, reformulation and recipe modification at undergraduate level. Knowledge and experience of working in food and nutrition sector and especially in sensory analysis settings is desirable.
The post is permanent, subject to the normal probationary period of twelve months.
We recruit staff nationally and internationally as we seek out the best to help build Hope for the future. If you join us you will be doing so at an exciting and challenging time as we work to build a liberal arts inspired university of distinction in the UK. If you have the energy, drive and commitment to assist us in this task, we would be delighted to hear from you.
