Career Details

Within Lancaster, Lambert became a Full Professor in 1990, Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Science and Technology, (2005 – 2010) and in 2010 was awarded a Research Professorship.

He was awarded a QinetiQ Fellowship (2009) was elected as a member of Academia Europaea (2006) and  elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics (2000).

He conceptualised, initiated and created the Lancaster Quantum Technology Centre and was the Founding Director until 2013. He led the Physics Department to the highest possible scores in RAEs 2001 and 2008.

Over the past 20 years, Lambert has led five European research collaborations, each 2-3 MEuros and involving 10 EU partners. Recent industry partners include BP Exploration, QinetiQ and IBM Zurich.

During 2005-6 Lambert led a European-level Forward Look in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology.

He was Director of the £4.8million North West Science Grid and a Board Member of the N8 Molecular Engineering Traslational Research Centre.

In 2004 he created and wrote the Call for the 10 Meuro European Science Foundation, Eurocores programme, "Fundamentals of Nanoelectronics."

In 1997, he was Founding Director of the EPSRC/IOP Theory of Condensed Matter Annual Summer School, ‘Physics By The Lake.’ In 1999, he co-founded the Windsor Summer School series.
