Make the exceptional happen with us

Welcome from the Provost

We want to find solutions for some of humankind’s greatest challenges and support our talented students to achieve more than they ever thought possible. At the University of Exeter we believe that partnership with academia, industry, business and with our community will help us to achieve this. 

If you have a strong track record of working collaboratively with external partners whether to deliver impact, conduct innovative research or to enhance the student experience we would like to hear from you.

This microsite showcases some of the great work our current staff are doing and offers links to find out much more about the University and the support offered to our academics. You will find links to our current vacancies on this microsite but we would welcome a conversation with you about your research area at any time.

"Exeter is a vibrant, regional University. Its global outlook and diversity fosters a culture of open-ness, innovation and collaboration with researchers from all backgrounds; in industry, in non-Government organisations and at other universities. Exeter’s entrepreneurial research culture enables me to explore new horizons, establish enduring research partnerships and exploit the latest research technologies. Working in this way I have been able to build a multinational team focused on solving long-term problems in sustainable energy, pollution and health. For example my work with Shell is investigating how to make bacteria produce biofuels which could revolutionise our approach to global fuel challenges."
