The School of Biosciences is seeking to make up to four appointments at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader level to enhance the research, impact and teaching profile of the School.  Led by an ambitious research and development strategy, we are seeking to build upon and develop our established research strengths.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who can demonstrate research excellence focused on the molecular cell biology of health, disease and ageing with a view to translating outcomes into novel therapeutic approaches.  Applicants with a focus on the biology of membranes in these settings are particularly encouraged to apply.  All applicants must demonstrate an alignment with our existing research programmes and, for the senior positions, be able to lead and strengthen our research through their addition to our team.

Applicants should also be able to demonstrate a track record of effective teaching commensurate with career stage and an enthusiasm for flexible teaching across the range of programmes (UG: Biochemistry, Biological and Biomedical Sciences; PG: MSc Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine; Biosciences MRes; Level 7 Research Scientist Degree Apprenticeship). Experience of teaching in areas such as physiology, metabolism, stem cells and regenerative medicine, molecular genetics, and protein science would be advantageous.

 Any application must be able to demonstrate your necessary teamwork skills to foster collaboration with existing Biosciences colleagues and to build links both within the University and externally, including the aptitude and ability to engage in continuous professional development.

You should clearly state how your appointment will build critical mass within the School and support the University mission through high quality, exploitable research that is accessible for business and has a positive impact on society.
