We wish to appoint excellent and ambitious early to mid-career principal investigators who are capable of developing innovative and original research programmes. This post is in the area of host responses to microbes which may include host-pathogen interactions and/or host-microbiome interactions. All applicants must demonstrate proven track records in publication and research income. We particularly welcome applicants with independent fellowships and researchers who can bridge between disciplines and will benefit from Warwick’s strong interdisciplinary and international research community.
Research within SLS is supported by cutting-edge experimental and computational facilities and close links to analytical capabilities in the Chemistry and Physics departments as well as the Alan Turing Institute. We have specialist insect, fish and rodent support units, plus fully supported controlled environment facilities near Gibbet Hill and field and glasshouse capabilities at our Wellesbourne campus. You will join one or more of our research clusters (https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/lifesci/research/clusters/).
SLS attracts a diverse, vibrant, high-achieving community of students, including several UKRI Doctoral Training Programmes and a wide range of external scholarships. We deliver high quality teaching and consistently achieve high scores in the National Student Satisfaction survey. You must be able to show commitment to undergraduate and postgraduate education and will contribute to small group tutorials, research projects, practical sessions and lectures and will be encouraged to innovate with teaching delivery.
We believe that collegiality, openness, inclusivity and diversity are essential for an excellent environment; this ethic has enabled us to gain an Athena SWAN Silver award. We are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, so if you are excited by this role, we encourage you to apply, even if your past experience does not match exactly. We also encourage applications from all groups with protected characteristics traditionally under-represented in STEM fields.
To apply, please complete the online application form, include a CV, names of three expert referees and a covering letter of no more than three pages outlining: how you meet the job description criteria, your future research objectives and aspirations, details on how you will attract funding, what makes your research distinctive, and how you would develop collaborations within SLS and externally. Please state whether you wish to be considered for the Assistant or Associate Professor position.
You can also include any career breaks you may have taken (e.g. parental/caring/long-term sick leave, part-time work, secondments) or any periods where you were unable or restricted to work because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This selection process will be spread over 2 or 3 days with dates of 27 and 28 February 2023 followed by 1 March 2023 as the day allocated for the interviews.
