Clinical Lecturer or Senior Clinical Lecturer

University of Liverpool - Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Programme suitable for scientists looking for an opportunity to broaden experience and develop cross-disciplinary skills. Six clinical/non-clinical Fellowships are available on this unique, collaborative research training programme, which will provide novel training and research opportunities in fundamental mechanistic toxicology, exposure modelling, exposomics and clinical pharmacology/drug safety.

The programme will be jointly administered by three establishments (two Fellows based at each Centre), these will be the MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science (MRC-CDSS, University of Liverpool), the MRC Toxicology Unit (MRC-TU Leicester) and the MRC-Public Health England (PHE) Centre for Environment & Health (MRC-PHE CEH, Imperial College and King’s College London). The scheme brings together combined scientific expertise of staff from the participating Institutions in pharmacology and toxicology to provide an exciting new framework for research, training and interaction with industry. Each Fellowship will be allocated to a host institution. Projects will be joint between two of the three Centres with approximately 3-6 months being spent at the partner Centre, thereby ensuring that Fellows benefit from the varied working environments and facilities on offer to enable the acquisition of a wide-ranging applied skills set.

On completion of a Fellowship, individuals will be highly competitive to apply for Senior Fellowships and establish independent research programmes.

Examples of possible projects include studies into toxicities associated with i) immune check-point inhibitors (CDSS, MRC-TU), ii) alcohol liver disease (CEH-CDSS), iii) nanofibre (e.g. carbon nanotube) exposure (MRC-TU, CEH-PHE), iv) pathways that link sodium excretion, blood pressure and cardiovascular disease (CEH-PHE, MRC-TU).

The MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science is now inviting applications for a Clinical Lecturer or Clinical Senior Lecturer to this programme.  We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with considerable experience of innovative research and a strong publication track record. You must hold a PhD in a relevant discipline. Experience of molecular toxicology/pharmacology would be advantageous.
