We believe a person's potential is not simply defined by grades or backgrounds, but by a willingness to question, to collaborate and to push at the edges of knowledge and their own potential. At the University of Essex we've been challenging conventions since 1964 – come and challenge us!
Essex provides a home for the tenacious, the bold, the inquisitive and those impatient for change. From pioneering research to student activism, we have never accepted the status quo. We share an equal commitment to excellence in education and excellence in research and we are on a quest to appoint people who will help us achieve our goals.
We are home to a truly global community for original thinkers who seek to change the world for the better. Part of an elite group of ‘dual intensive’ universities, Essex is not only gold rated for teaching excellence but also top 25 for research in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019. The University is 29th overall in the Good University Guide and 22nd for international outlook in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021.
We are committed to:
delivering high-quality teaching in a friendly and supportive environment
- internationally significant research
innovation and enterprise
Our staff and students are members of the University for life, working together in a research-led educational environment to inspire us to want to explore and embrace what we do not yet know.
As an employer, we offer a range of benefits and a commitment to career development and equal opportunities in an environment that both reflects and creates a rich interaction of people, disciplines and ideas.
