The School of Psychology and Life Sciences is a vibrant and diverse community of academics, postgraduate and undergraduate students with approximately 150 academic staff and 30 professional service and technical support staff, providing innovative multi-disciplinary science and social science education across a range of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to approximately 2000 students.
The school is organised into three Sections and you will work within the Section of Natural and Applied Sciences (NAS), joining an energetic and multidisciplinary team of about 20 academic staff. The Section runs a number of single honours degree programmes that integrate the core sciences (chemistry, physics and biology) including both BSc Biomedical Science and BSc Human Biology pathways. The BSc Biomedical Science pathway is also offered with an integrated MSci. The science programmes within the Section are all offered with a foundation (Level 0) entry and the Section also offers an MPhil/PhD in Biological Sciences and an MSc by Research in Biosciences.
Our laboratory facilities are based within the University’s new £70m STEM building that houses CCCU’s specialist laboratory facilities. Within this STEM building, NAS is located alongside the new Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS), other lab-based disciplines in PLS, and the new School of Engineering, Technology and Design. We also have a specialist Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab based at Discovery Park, Sandwich, one of Europe’s leading science and technology parks and a site that is currently building a specialism in neurological and optical research. This Liaison Lab provides industry-relevant experience of commercial standard laboratories to students studying courses across the life sciences and facilitates research collaboration with industries based at Discovery Park.
The University is growing its capacity in science and wishes to appoint two enthusiastic and experienced candidates to posts at Senior Lecturer, Reader or Principal Lecturer or at Professor level (commensurate with experience) in Biomedical Science or a related field (e.g. Immunology, Cancer Biology). The successful candidates will have an active involvement in the organisation and delivery of Biomedical Science courses across undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
A PhD is not a requirement, we will also consider applicants with relevant and extensive experience in clinical or medical/biomedical practice. If a successful candidate had interest in completing a part-time PhD while in post, this would be supported as far as possible. We are particularly interested to hear from applicants with a keen interest and research profile in neuroscience or anatomy and physiology as well as the blood sciences, including the fields of immunology or haematology.
