Are you an early career researcher looking for your first challenge? Do you have a background in animal reproduction biology and animal welfare? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are seeking an enthusiastic and capable interdisciplinary scientist with excellent communication skills to conduct analyses, write papers and support the development of research proposals at the interface of animal reproduction biology and animal welfare.  

You should have a first degree or Masters in Biological Sciences, Animal Science, Biochemistry or a closely allied discipline and you may have a PhD (or be close to completion) in pig reproductive biology or a related area.  This will be complemented with experience in the histo-chemical and imaging analysis of ovaries, uterine horns and testes, and experience of having contributed to papers in internally recognised peer-reviewed journals. You will have good time management and planning skills, with the ability to meet tight deadlines and a proven track record in communicating your research outcomes. You will be based in the School of Biology at the University of Leeds and at the National Pig Centre.

The University of Leeds and the Faculty of Biological Sciences are committed to providing equal opportunities for all and offer a range of family friendly policies. The University is a charter member of Athena SWAN (the national body that promotes gender equality in higher education), and the Faculty of Biological Sciences was awarded a Silver award in 2020.  We are proud to be an inclusive Faculty that values all staff, and are happy to consider job share applications and requests for flexible working arrangements from our employees.
