University of Leeds - School of Molecular & Cellular Biology / Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology

Location: Leeds - Main Campus

Faculty/Service: Faculty of Biological Sciences

Category: Academic

Contract Type: Fixed Term (Successful completion of a 5 year probationary period leading to confirmation as grade 9 Associate Professor.)

Interview Date: To be confirmed

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Biomolecular In-Cell NMR and related topics?  Do you have an excellent research record and proven success obtaining funding? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Do you aspire to become an academic leader in your field?

As a University Academic Fellow, you will carry out research, teaching and associated administration in the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology within the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology and contribute to academic leadership in the field of in-cell NMR structural biology. The Astbury centre brings together a large group of structural molecular biologists, chemists and physicists working on the structure and function of a wide range of biological molecules, biomolecular assemblies and complexes. The University of Leeds is investing £17 million in a state of the art laboratory for structural biology providing the Astbury Centre with instruments for NMR spectroscopy (including 950 MHz) and Electron Microscopy (two Titan Krios) competitive with the very best in the world.

You will embark on a five-year development programme, successful completion of which will lead to your promotion to Associate Professor.

The Faculty of Biological Sciences holds the Athena SWAN Bronze Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).
