The University of South Wales Faculty of Life Sciences and Education is seeking to appoint an exceptional senior academic as a Professor, to further develop the research profile of the Sport, Health and Exercise science programme, in preparation for the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 exercise.
During the most recent (2014) REF, over two thirds of the research submitted was rated world leading or internationally excellent overall, with Sport and Exercise Science ranked 15th in the UK for world-leading research. This position represents another major investment in the University's research ambitions and is integral to planning for its next REF (2021) submission, as it looks to build on previous success.
The role holder will be expected to make substantial contributions to research, publication and income generation aligned to the research interests of the Neurovascular Research Laboratory, which is situated within Sport, Health and Exercise Science programme, as well as the early planning and development of the University’s REF submission. The post-holder will also be expected to contribute to the teaching/supervision of undergraduate and/or postgraduate students.
