University of Southampton logoIt’s seeking ambitious researchers and academics to further strengthen its reputation for education, research excellence and enterprise – the university’s ‘triple helix’.

Positions are available across all subject levels and at all levels of seniority.

There’ll be a particular focus on four key themes – artificial intelligence, sustainability and resilience, decarbonisation, and engineering better health.

These have been chosen both to build on the university’s existing strengths and to address important challenges and opportunities facing the world.

“We’re a successful, ambitious organisation, full of remarkable people achieving incredible things.

“This investment in our people shows how determined we are to accelerate our growth.

“People are at the heart of all we do – whether that’s through our life-changing research, focused on providing real and positive outcomes for others, or our dedication to making sure our students get the best experience and opportunities.

“We’re fully committed to be an organisation where people with genuine talent can succeed no matter what their background.

“Join us and you’ll have the opportunity to help make real and lasting impact for future generations.”

Southampton ranks among the world’s top 100 universities and the UK’s top 20.

It also landed 13th for the UK in this year’s QS World Sustainability rankings.

Mark SpearingProfessor Mark Spearing, vice-president (research and enterprise), added: “The University of Southampton is an outstanding place for ambitious researchers who want to progress their careers and ensure their work can make a lasting difference.

“This is well illustrated through our economic impact report and our sector-leading performance in the Knowledge Exchange Framework.”
