- an outstanding track record of research for their career stage and discipline, including high-quality publications, research funding and/or prizes and awards

- an aptitude to lead and inspire others within the research team and institution more broadly
- potential to act as an ambassador in their research field and more widely
- Part-time appointments will be considered on a pro-rata basis.
