Work with us, not for us
With a shared vision, we are a community of more than 4,000 colleagues, all committed to our goal of becoming the University of the Future.
“There’s variety, and there’s challenge. No two days are the same. Today, I’ve got this fantastic view of the University and the whole HE sector: a view that’s bigger and far wider than the one I started out with, when I first arrived."
“I really appreciate the leadership, support and autonomy I’ve been given here, and all the incredible opportunities to take on senior roles and responsibilities.”
“We’ve got some incredibly diverse characters – and I think that’s my favourite thing about NTU.”
“The job brings together all of my biggest passions – faith, social justice, and helping people to reach their potential. NTU has helped me find my calling.”
Professor and Head of Sport Science
We are seeking to appoint a new Head to continue to lead the Department towards international excellence.
With over 70 members of staff and 1,000 students, our Department of Sport Science has a long and established history for delivering sport-related programmes. Investment in people and facilities is a cornerstone to our success; facilities include six well-equipped physiology laboratories, the British Olympic Association approved environmental chamber, a newly opened sport and exercise psychology laboratory, the recently refurbished performance analysis suite and two biomechanics and neuromuscular performance laboratories.
Our Sport, Health and Physical Enhancement Research Centre combines expertise from staff in Sport Science, Sport Engineering and Biosciences to form a critical mass of researchers within specialisms that are internationally excellent and have societal, sporting and economic impact. Interdisciplinary working is critical and there are excellent collaborative opportunities with colleagues in Biosciences including the John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre, Chemistry and Forensics, Computer Science, Engineering and in Mathematics and Physics.
We are seeking to appoint a new Head to continue to lead the Department towards international excellence. As our Head you will work collegially in ensuring that our diverse and large student cohort reach their potential and, with a focus on career progression of the team, an important part of your leadership brief will be the support of their roles, whether this be in encouraging our upward research trajectory or developing teaching and practice pathways.
