We are looking for a colleague with the potential to become a world-class researcher and inspiring teacher, and who uses molecular approaches to address fundamental questions or develop technologies that are relevant to plant sciences.
The lectureship is in the Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, a community of 16 plant research groups within one of the UK’s largest and highest-rated biology departments, offering excellent facilities and a stimulating environment for research and teaching. Our research priorities are resilient plant health in changing environments, the evolution, diversification and biodiversity of plants and green factories for high value products. Current research topics range from the regulation of protein function, to vascular development in early land plants and the generation of circadian rhythm. The post is full time and open-ended. We particularly encourage people from groups under-represented in science to apply.
This post will suit someone who wants to address their own major research questions in plant science, who can promote and facilitate translation of fundamental research, and who can contribute to inspired learning in a world-class institution with a strongly collaborative and cross-disciplinary ethos. Working in a supportive environment, you will have the potential to rapidly develop an international reputation for research at the forefront of Plant Science. We encourage translational impact and links with industry. You will also be an enthusiastic and innovative teacher and will deliver both undergraduate and masters teaching in this area, together with research postgraduate training.
