Following a recent major award, our Diabetes Centre of Excellence is expanding substantially.
This permanent, full time post is available at the University of Exeter Medical School, College of Medicine & Health, one of the fastest growing medical schools in the UK.
Summary of post
Professors will be senior academics recognized nationally and internationally for their expertise, drive and ambition in research, education, training and leadership, areas in which they will play major roles within the College. The post holder will be a highly influential and innovative researcher with a large research portfolio and an exemplary current record of research funding and major publications. As a leading international figure they will have the ability to attract substantial, sustained funding and world-class academics to Exeter. They will contribute to the strategic vision of the college across all areas, collaborate with our research centres, work with staff individually to ensure they achieve their potential, and have key roles in developing the research and education culture and international reputation of the University of Exeter Medical School.
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.
