Recruiting the future of Women in STEM

Committed to promoting diversity and inclusion within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

Christine Raines and Tracy Lawson

At Essex, we are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion within STEM fields. Women are often underrepresented in many areas of STEM, but they bring a unique perspective to the field and provide valuable skills otherwise missed. Equally, Women working in STEM fields often find their career progression slower than their male colleagues. Essex is committed to seeking talented and ambitious female academics to join our team of experts and help us close the gender gap in these fields

At our university, you will have access to world-class facilities and resources, from the STEM Centre dedicated to the field; to our BabyLab, which studies the development of perceptual and cognitive abilities in infants.

Explore the range of world-class facilities at Essex.

As well as providing a supportive and inclusive community, we also offer a range of excellent staff benefits and discounts, such as access to our on-campus day nursery (provided at a discounted rate for staff), and excellent relocation packages for new staff grades 7-11. We also have a whole host of health and fitness benefits, as well as opportunities for professional development and career advancement.

Join Essex, and help shape the future of STEM - make a difference to the world, change our understanding of science and technology and take the first step towards a fulfilling and rewarding career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

Working at Essex has supported my career in a number of ways. I have been provided with numerous training and development opportunities which have enabled me to develop not only my research and teaching skills, but also my leadership and communication skills. I have also been mentored by female colleagues in STEM who have supported me in my research and teaching roles and provided guidance on career development.
