The University offers every individual the opportunity to succeed. We want our staff to represent multi-faceted life experiences, varied cultural heritage and to encourage cognitive diversity. We recognise that the field is not ‘level’ and want to actively address barriers to progression. Markers of success to date include a low gender pay gap within the School where this post sits (6%) and holding an Athena Swan Bronze Award. We also challenge stereotypes and partner with networks both within and outside of the University to enhance inclusion in the workplace. For this particular post, we wholeheartedly encourage applications from individuals identifying with a minority ethnic heritage. Life and Medical Sciences has made significant progress in attracting diverse staff into academia over the past three years and we are keen that our staff base in sport studies also better reflects the students studying our discipline.
We offer a range of employee benefits including generous annual leave and discounted Sports Village memberships, personal and professional development and family-friendly policies. #GoHerts
