Summary of the role

The post holder will be recognised internationally as a research rising star. They will lead a dynamic research group which will take forward novel ideas, secure funding sufficient to ensure the sustainability of the research team and deliver innovative research projects. They will supervise and enthuse undergraduate and postgraduate students in research and excel at teaching. The post holder will produce research outputs at an appropriate level and disseminate their research to academic, healthcare and patient communities. Collaboration with other colleagues in the College of Medicine and Health, the Living Systems Institute, Centre for Medical Mycology and Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is very much encouraged as is the development of external national and international collaborations.

Specialists in Clinical Science, Cell and Molecular Biology, and Experimental Medicine are encouraged to apply. They will work on innovative research of the human beta-cell, exploring the effects of genetic mutations identified in patients with diabetes on for example beta cell development and function in order to improve the understanding of the development and function of the human insulin producing beta-cell.  A key link with our work on human beta-cell development will be the establishment of beta-cell models based on pluripotent stem cells. Experimental medicine investigation of patients with genetic mutations will be crucial in this area. This work will be facilitated by the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research facility, which can provide patient specimens from genotyped patients as well as state of the art clinical facilities. Interdisciplinary work will be with our Living Systems Institute.

We welcome applications from individuals who have the skills described above but who have not, as yet, applied those skills to diabetes research but are keen to do so, as well as those already working in diabetes and its associated conditions.
