University of Exeter Medical School

In the Medical School at Exeter, everything we do is designed to make a positive impact regionally, nationally and internationally to the health, prosperity and wellbeing of individuals and communities.

The University was one of three winners to receive additional government funding following REF2014. For Medicine, 84% of our research was rated as world leading or internationally excellent. We are now investing in ambitious plans to grow, as a central priority of University strategy.

Our transdisciplinary research teams work together by applying their specialisms to understand health and disease, to undertake interventions and change care, ensuring the widest positive impacts of our research. We focus our research on two broad frameworks: promoting health through the life course, through our themes of Environment and Human Health and Ageing and Public Health; and generating and implementing research evidence which supports individuals living well with disease, through our research themes of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Risk, Neuroscience and Mental Health, and Health Services Research.

We’re proud to be innovators in education too, focused on training collaborative leaders who are well equipped to lead the NHS and healthcare in exciting new directions. Committed to working with our partners to deliver a world class student experience, our research-intensive learning environment enables our students to develop top class clinical and scientific skills and also benefit from our principles of translating our discoveries to personalised care and healthy communities.

As part of our ambitious plans for expansion we wish to appoint talented and experienced Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Associate Professors and Professors, both clinical and non-clinical across multiple specialisms. We particularly welcome applications from candidates holding individual fellowships and may make additional appointments to suitably qualified candidates.
