Equality and Diversity
We are a friendly department with a warm atmosphere and a dedication to being inclusive, diverse and fair.
The Department of Physics has a high proportion (15%) of female physics professors compared with the national average (4%). We welcome everyone and are strongly committed to fostering diversity within our community as a source of excellence, cultural enrichment, and social strength. Our family-friendly policy includes flexible working hours, maternity and paternity leave policies, and on-campus daycare for under-fives.
Lancaster University and the Department of Physics are also committed to breaking down barriers and improving access to Higher Education through its widening participation programmes.
The equality and diversity committee within the Department of Physics meets regularly to continue to strive for a welcoming, inclusive, diverse and fair department.
