Applications are invited for an Assistant/Associate Professorship (University Lecturer/Senior Lecturer) in the field of Mammalian Embryogenesis and Reproduction to be held in the Department of Physiology Development and Neuroscience. We are searching for a talented individual with a track record in research and commitment to teaching. The post is available from 1st October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. The department offers a world class research and teaching environment with an emphasis on exploring structure-function relationships at different levels of organisation, from tissues and organs to the organismal (https://www.pdn.cam.ac.uk/research). We particularly welcome applications from individuals with research programmes using whole organism, stem cell or multi-omics approaches to investigate fundamental mechanisms involved in embryogenesis and/or reproduction and pregnancy.

The successful applicants will have a PhD in a relevant subject area and show evidence of leading a successful research programme. Applicants will also have an aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and will be expected to contribute to teaching and other academic activities in the Department, and more widely in the School of Biological Sciences, including the design and delivery of undergraduate and graduate lecture courses, examinations and other forms of assessment. The starting salary is dependent on the level of appointment being made, as determined by the Selection Committee. Assistant Professorships will start in the range of £45,585 - £57,696 pa; Associate Professorships will start in the range of £61,198 - £64,914 pa.

The Department is committed to the Athena SWAN scheme to provide equal opportunities and to advance the representation of women and other under-represented groups in science. We particularly encourage women and/or candidates from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background to apply for this vacancy as they are currently under-represented at this level within our University. Appointment will be based on merit alone. As a signatory of DORA (https://sfdora.org) the University is committed to assessing research on its own merits rather than on the basis of the journal in which it is published.

Please ensure that in the Upload section of the online application you provide:

- A document containing your Curriculum Vitae (CV), research publications list, and a brief narrative (300 words maximum per output) on each of the three outputs you consider most significant. The Department is committed to the responsible use of bibliometrics, and applicants are asked not to include raw citation count, Journal Impact Factor or H-index metrics in their applications.

- A statement of research of no more than two pages, outlining your current and future research plans, with an emphasis on how these fit within the remit of the position and possible synergies within Department and across the University.

- A one page statement focusing on (i) your teaching experience and interests, (ii) your contributions to and/or vision for open research and improving research culture (see this link) (iii) what Equality Diversity & Inclusion means to you.

For informal enquiries, please contact the joint Heads of Department, Professor Bill Colledge and Professor Sarah Bray (hod@pdn.cam.ac.uk).

The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.

The University has a responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK.
