You will be an outstanding research leader, able to attract high level funding and colleagues who are leaders in your field and share your talent and vision. Together you will build a successful research centre, harnessing the power and commitment of your team at one of the UK's leading universities.
Ambitious for the future, rising in league tables and investing in world-leading research activity, Leicester is a place committed to continued success in turbulent times. That is why we recently appointed three new Research Professors and continue to seek up to seven further Research Professors who share our ambition and passion for discovery.
Building on the success of the first round of research professorships, in this second round we are interested in hearing from leaders in their field who enhance and develop our existing research strengths. In return you will be able to spend all your time on research and be supported in the initial development of your chosen field by University funds for three years.
So visit www.le.ac.uk/researchprofessors for more details and to view video messages from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Bob Burgess, and from current Research Professors, who will share with you our commitment to this initiative.
We look forward to hearing your vision of our future together.The closing date for outline applications is 5.00pm on 1 March 2012.
