As part of a programme of strategic growth within the Department of Life Sciences, the Division of Biosciences is looking for proactive and motivated academics to contribute to its ongoing success. We are inviting applications to two positions to build on and complement our existing strengths across teaching, research and employability.

The successful applicants will contribute significantly to the research profile of the Division of Biosciences, which includes staff with interests in inflammatory and infectious disease, immunology, human health, toxicology, epidemiology and big data analysis, cell biology, cancer biology, radiation biology, transcriptional regulation, ageing and genetics.

We run a suite of undergraduate taught programmes in Biomedical Sciences and Life Sciences, and have recently established a new taught postgraduate degree in Disease Mechanisms and Therapeutics. The post holders will contribute to the continuing success of these activities as well as to the Division of Biosciences at Brunel University London. We are seeking candidates with experience in either of the following two subject areas:

  • Mechanisms of Inflammation, Infection and Immunity
  • Big data analysis, including use of large-scale epidemiological, biological, genetic and genomic datasets related to human health

You will combine producing world-class research in your area of Biomedical Science with enthusiastic, student-centered and research-led teaching. The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a relevant field, supported by substantial experience at postdoctoral or equivalent industrial level, with a proven research track-record, demonstrated through high quality outputs that will contribute to our upcoming UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) submission.

We are proud of the exceptional development structure for early career academics at Brunel University London. Under our Academic Life Cycle policy, the appointment to Lecturer will be subject to a two year probationary period (with reduced teaching duties) followed by a two year development period. Subject to meeting probationary and development targets, the post holder would normally be promoted to Senior Lecturer after four years.

We work hard to provide a supportive and positive environment and the Department of Life Sciences holds an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. We are also a Disability Confident employer. The diversity of our staff adds greatly to this inclusive ethos, and we particularly welcome applications from women and under-represented groups.

Closing date for applications: Wednesday 18th September 2019
