Hours: Full Time

As the School of Biological & Behavioural Sciences continues to grow, we seek to appoint ambitious research-driven scientists at Lecturer level with a strong publication record as well as significant potential for funding in any area of Computational Ecology or Evolutionary Genetics involving innovative approaches taken from the Artificial Intelligence and data analytics toolbox.

The successful candidate will be involved in teaching on our MSc AI in the Biosciences and potentially other undergraduate or postgraduate programmes (teaching loads are as to be expected within a research-led institution and normally reduced in the first two years following appointment) on subjects such as data analysis in biology, coding for biologists, machine learning and artificial intelligence in biology.

We understand those approaches have only relatively recently been applied to those disciplines, as such we are looking for someone with a vision for technical development and addressing key questions. We therefore encourage early careers researchers to apply.

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is a member of the Russell Group and one of the largest colleges in the University of London, is one of the UK's leading research-intensive institutions (7th for the quality of our research outputs in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework). We have made a strategic commitment to world-class research and teaching across all disciplines.

At QMUL, we believe that a diversity of ideas helps us achieve the previously unthinkable. Throughout our history, we have fostered social justice and improved lives through academic excellence and we continue to live and breathe this spirit today, not because it’s simply ‘the right thing to do’ but for what it helps us achieve and the intellectual brilliance it delivers. We continue to embrace diversity of thought and opinion in everything we do, in the belief that when views collide, disciplines interact, and perspectives intersect, truly original thought takes form.

We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum, a season ticket loan scheme, staff networks and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work life balance and family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.

The post is full time, permanent and with an expected start date of July 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The salary will be in Grade 5-6, in the range of £45,931 - £56,921 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

Queen Mary’s commitment to our diverse and inclusive community is embedded in our appointments processes. Reasonable adjustments will be made at each stage of the recruitment process for any candidate with a disability. We are open to considering applications from candidates wishing to work flexibly.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to the Head of Biology: Prof Christophe Eizaguirre via: c.eizaguirre@qmul.ac.uk.
