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 three 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 and the Centre for Genome Engineering and Maintenance (CenGEM), which includes staff with research interests in areas such as genetics and genome engineering, DNA damage and repair, toxicology, epidemiology and big data analysis, cell biology, cancer biology, radiation biology, transcriptional regulation and ageing.

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 any of the following three subject areas:

  • Changes in DNA structure and/or chromatin function, with a focus on damage induced by environmental exposures, such as radiation and/or environmental chemicals.
  • Genetics of ageing, with a focus on genomics and/or cellular structure and function in ageing or age-related diseases.
  • Replication, repair and transcription.

You will combine producing world-class research in your area of Biomedical Sciences with enthusiastic, student-centered and research-led teaching. The successful candidates will have a doctoral degree (SL) or be near completion (L) 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. The appointment to Lecturer is 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.

Applicants are requested to state clearly in their application and/or cover letter which one of the three areas they wish to be considered for.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 19 April 2020
