The MRC Centre for Medical Mycology at the University of Exeter seeks to appoint to several open rank posts to further strengthen an integrated team of exceptional scientists and clinicians from across multiple disciplines to conduct world-leading research aimed at tackling a major global threat to human health.
MRC Centre for Medical Mycology (MRC CMM) at the University of Exeter
The MRC CMM is a world-leading research centre that is helping to tackle the global threat to human health caused by fungal diseases. Fungal infections now kill more people worldwide than malaria and similar numbers to tuberculosis. The MRC CMM is one of the most ambitious strategic investments in medical mycology and integrates researchers from multiple fields of expertise to increase our understanding of fungal pathogens and cognate immune defences, and to identify new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat fungal diseases. A major activity of the Centre is to increase capacity in fundamental and clinical research in medical mycology through research and training programmes for medical and biosciences students, clinicians and early career researchers. The Centre has established a satellite research and training Unit in Cape Town and is in the process of establishing similar Units in South America and in Asia. The MRC CMM also has numerous strategic interactions with other national and international groups and actively promotes the public engagement and understanding of our science.
