Rise to the challenge - opportunities for research leaders with grand ambitions

Professorial and Readership appointments

Teesside University has a bold vision to help transform lives and economies. Underpinning this vision is a commitment to excellence in practical and impact-focussed research aligned to five interdisciplinary Grand Challenge themes: Health and Wellbeing, Resilient and Secure Societies, the Digital and Creative Economy, Sustainable Environments, and Learning for the 21st Century.

We are seeking to appoint 12 new research leaders with talent, energy and track record around whom we will grow our teams over the next two academic years and establish the research areas that will make us distinctive.
