The Hull York Medical School is seeking to recruit an outstanding colleague with interests in metabolism and cell signalling to join a new Biomedical Institute for Multimorbidity (BIM). Recent discoveries indicate that metabolism is a major component of health and disrupted metabolism is linked to many aspects of disease. Metabolic processes act on all aspects of cell physiology, modulating gene expression, protein function and cellular phenotype and better understanding of cellular metabolism and its links to cell signalling offer exciting opportunities to drive new understanding of disease processes. We are looking to recruit a talented Senior Lecturer in Metabolic Signalling to join a Biomedical Institute for Multimorbidity within the newly established Centre for Biomedicine. BIM is an ambitious new research institute constituting four research themes (Cardiovascular & Haemostasis; Wound Healing & Respiratory; Diabetes & Metabolism; Cancer Imaging) that capitalises on existing areas of research strength within Hull York Medical School with the aim of making major discoveries aimed at enhancing the diagnosis and management of increasingly prevalent complex health conditions in an ageing population. There is now an exciting opportunity to be a member of the “Diabetes and Metabolism” research theme to develop an interdisciplinary research programme that will benefit from established links with existing research academics and close clinical links with colleagues in the Hull York Medical School Clinical Sciences Centre and Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
We encourage applications from ambitious and experienced research leaders with a track record of achievement in the field of how metabolism influences cell function in health and disease. We have existing interests in energy metabolism, mitochondrial function and epigenetics – we are keen to hear from anyone that compliments these interests.
You are expected to lead and contribute to the development and delivery of cutting-edge research studies, generating external research income and REF-returnable research outputs of international quality. Based on your track record of achievement, you will be expected to identify and lead applications for external funding, support commercial interactions and undertake high quality knowledge exchange. While the focus of this position will be research, you will also be expected to deliver excellent teaching within our undergraduate and taught Masters degree programmes, as well as offering high quality undergraduate and postgraduate research project supervision.
