Division of Immunology, Immunity to Infection, and Respiratory Medicine (DIIIRM) are seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the area of Infection Biology/Microbiome to support this strategically important discipline, to strengthen cross-division collaboration, and increase the capability of the School to respond to strategic funding calls in this area. Infection by microbial pathogens continues to present a considerable challenge to health and the interplay between microbes and their hosts is increasingly recognized to be multi-directional and profoundly influenced by commensal organisms, ultimately determining overall health. The interplay between host immune processes, pathogens and commensals that underpin the pathology of diverse infectious diseases are central themes of many groups in Manchester. Infection biology and microbiome research is strongly supported by the Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation and more broadly within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.  

Ideally you will have a research vision in an area related to immunity to infection and/or the microbiome. Your research vision will have a strong technology focus and complement and enhance existing technology capabilities in Manchester and you will seek to exploit translational opportunities. We particularly welcome applications from individuals with experience in gnotobiotic approaches in vivo to utilize and develop this powerful technology going forward within our Germ Free and Gnotobiotic animal facility. You will be supported in the development of an independent research programme within the Divisions; complementing the overall multidisciplinary strategy. Working collaboratively, you will be a future leader/leader in your field, driving world-leading research and enhancing our strengths in infection biology, immunity to infection and microbiome. You will also contribute to our outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within  the School of Biological Sciences and wider University; with opportunities to develop curriculum, innovate teaching and provide an exceptional student experience through research-led learning.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
