and crystallography, and the properties and structures of
glasses, melts and mineral surfaces.  However,
applications from candidates with experience outside
these fields will also be welcome.

The appointment will be made at either University
Lecturer or University Assistant Lecturer level,
depending on the age of the person appointed, and will be
