Academic opportunities in interdisciplinary sciences at King’s College London

We are recruiting academic positions at all levels as part of a major investment in science at King’s. A total of 64 new academic positions will be appointed in the coming years, alongside extensive investment in new laboratories, teaching spaces and cutting-edge education programmes, that will rapidly scale King’s science capabilities and build on our rich history of scientific breakthroughs from developing the theory of electromagnetism through to the world’s first human-to-human blood transfusion.

This is an exciting time for science at King’s. Successful candidates will play a key role in developing and executing internationally leading research, working synergistically across disciplines, and identifying and growing promising early career researchers, as well as supporting the education of scientists of the future. You will be based at one of our central London campuses in one of the UK’s largest and most renowned universities with a mission to make the world a better place. Appointments will be made according to best fit across our four science-focused faculties: the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences; the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine; the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences; and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.

 In this academic year we are focused on recruitment within three interdisciplinary areas including Net Zero. Our net zero research spans across multiple science and engineering disciplines, as well as the social sciences. The King’s Centre for Net Zero was launched in 2023 with a mission to be a world leader in combining fundamental science and technological solutions for decarbonising our economy and society. This recruitment round is focused on the fundamental science behind net zero research and innovation. It is an opportunity to join a growing interdisciplinary research community focused on whole systems approaches.
