Our people enjoy all the typical benefits you would expect from a top ten UK university, but unlike a typical university department, we think and operate much more like a medium-sized business. We have over 720 staff and associates who support our work; in fact we're the largest department in the University both in terms of number of employees and our research income (we contribute around 38% of the University's total research income).
We encourage everyone to be creative, and to contribute towards pushing the department ever forwards. There is often the opportunity to get involved with projects that might normally be considered outside of a standard job description. There is good interaction between research, education, technical and professional support staff, and expertise is shared around the department according to need. There are also lots of opportunities to get involved with how the department operates, for example we run frequent workshops and seminars in order to share ideas and solve problems together.
Our facilities are excellent, and we're right at the heart of the campus. Read about our buildings and centres here.
We're a vibrant campus University, just 3 miles from the centre of Coventry. Our site is almost a mini-town in itself, and also offers several picturesque walking, running and cycling routes that take in woods, lakes and natural wildlife areas.
Our sporting facilities are world class, and include a gym, 25 metre swimming pool, a competition standard climbing wall, an indoor tennis centre and various tracks and sports pitches around campus.
Our library is so much more than the physical spaces and books. We want you to be able to access everything you need - services, spaces or collections – and make the most of what we have to offer.
You're never far away from a good cup of coffee and a tasty treat. Across campus you'll find a wide variety of coffee shops, sit-down restaurants, takeaway vendors, bars and pubs, and even fine dining options. Our monthly Food Market is also not to be missed.
