The Faculty Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen field, with the opportunity to build an independent research career.
Our ‘Physics of Life and Quantitative Biology’ initiative will create a critical mass of researchers to build on Sheffield’s strong track record in this area. The Research Fellows will work at the interface of bioscience and physics in areas ranging from soft matter physics through quantitative methods and approaches for studying living systems, to the physical principles of how living things function, and encompassing elements of, e.g., mechanobiology and energy capture biology. The Fellows’ research areas will be strongly cross-disciplinary, requiring knowledge, understanding and approaches from both physical and biological disciplines.
The Research Fellows will have access to the world class facilities in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the School of Biosciences, including the Biophysical Imaging Centre for atomic force microscopy, mechanobiology and optical instrument development, the Light Microscopy Facility for confocal and super-resolution optical microscopy, the Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility and the Near Field Optical Spectroscopy Facility for nano-scale infra-red spectroscopic imaging.
We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.
