Your chance to make a difference at a top five university

Be part of our outstanding academic community

We have exciting opportunities for Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Readers and Professors in a variety of subject areas and research disciplines. We also have up to 10 Doctoral Prize Fellowships on offer.

At Loughborough University, we value diversity and are committed to delivering excellence through the development of our inclusive and respectful culture. We would particularly like to encourage applications from female academics, academics with a disability and academics from ethnic minorities as we are actively seeking to increase numbers of staff from these under-represented groups.

The opportunities vary across our Schools and Departments, so take a look at the individual pages for more information.

The closing date for applications is 18 March 2020.
