Northumbria is a research-intensive modern university with a global reputation for academic excellence.

Ranked in the UK top 50 (Guardian University League Table 2022 and Complete University Guide 2023), Northumbria recorded the biggest rise of any UK university for research power in the Research Excellence Framework for the second time in 2021 and is now rated within the top 25 in the UK.

We have over 80 academics researching in these areas, working with 60 PDRAs, research fellows and PhD students, and a thriving undergraduate population of approximately 1,500 students. The Department has a history of impactful inter-disciplinary subject research, often in collaboration with industry and supported through UKRI funding. With 86% of our staff submitted to REF2021, we were delighted to say that 82% of the Department’s publications were rated as internationally excellent and world-leading. More than 60 colleagues in the Department were part of our REF2021 submission to the Allied Health Unit of Assessment 3 which was ranked 8th (out of 91) in the UK for Research Power. In addition, our Research Environment was given the highest possible rating of 100% 4* - acknowledging our excellence in this area and state of the art facilities for performing research.

The Department’s laboratory estate spans four floors of interdisciplinary activity and is recently refurbished providing research laboratory space for biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry and, microbiology. This includes specific laboratories for tissue culture, microbiology, mass spectrometry, chromatography and synthesis, and a microscopy suite which is currently undergoing a multi-million pound expansion. This is complemented by dedicated high performance computing for bioinformatics and modelling and dedicated, state-of-the-art, in-house facilities for metabolomics, proteomics and genomics (including MiSeq, NextSeq and PacBio sequencing platforms), which enabled this Department to be the North of England representative undertaking analysis and surveillance for the Covid-19 Genomics UK consortium (COG-UK) through the Pandemic. The Department also hosts the Research England funded Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment (HBBE) which seeks to create a transdisciplinary working space for bringing together the latest research and thinking in biotechnology, architecture, and sustainability.

The successful candidate will be part of the academic team that teaches biochemistry to undergraduate students, on campus, across our suite of ‘bioscience’ degrees and our International Medical Pathway programme, delivered in partnership with St. George’s University, Grenada. This post will involve designing, developing and delivering innovative and research-informed teaching and supporting our students to achieve their future career aspirations. In parallel, you will be part of the Department’s research future, with your own academic excellence through high quality publications and income generation from funding applications to external bodies such as UKRI, charities and commercial partners.
