Summary of the role

Associate Professors will engage with and support research and teaching activities. The post holder will be an innovative researcher with a strong and current record of research funding and international quality publications. Therefore the post holder will be a leading international figure with the ability to attract funding and world-class academics to their research group.

Applications from specialists in Immunology are very welcome. The immunologists will be able to work on novel and pioneering approaches using unique human pancreas samples obtained at the time of diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. The ultimate aim is to understand the underlying disease processes in order to stimulate the development and application of novel immunotherapies and inform the design of new clinical trials.  The availability of our new high-resolution, automated, digital pathology system will support this work by superseding current more laborious methods of image analysis.  Interdisciplinary work will be with our Living Systems Institute.

We are particularly interested in individuals who:

  • will bring their leadership, tools and skills and contribute their expertise to this diabetes research in the areas of Bayesian Statistics, Artificial Intelligence, Immunology and Cell Biology
  • and have educational strengths in the above areas

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.
