University of Cambridge - School of Biological Sciences

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £68,857 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 24th November 2023
Closes: 25th January 2024
Job Ref: PC39350

The School of Biological Sciences is pleased to invite applications for three new G11 Professor posts (Reader equivalent), available from October 2024:

- Professor of Evolutionary Networks

- Professor of Biotic Interactions

- Professor of Integrative and Systems Neuroscience 

The posts align with the School's research strategy to foster innovative research across disciplinary boundaries

The focus of the Professor of Evolutionary Networks will be to build a world-leading research programme, deliver excellent teaching, and to positively engage with academic leadership both in the home Department(s) and across the School of Biological Sciences.

The successful applicant will have an excellent track record in studying the complexities of genome and /or species relationships, in line with the concept of the 'Network of Life', where the focus is on reticulate networks, rather than simple hierarchical or branching patterns.  The post holder will build strategic strength across the Functional and Evolutionary Genomics Theme, as well as connections with colleagues in the Organisms, Evolution and Ecology Theme. Of particular interest are advances in novel sequencing technology, environmental genomics and new perspectives in extant and historic ecological and environmental interactions.  Expertise in the implementation and development of machine learning and AI approaches to drive advances in evolutionary networks is equally of interest. 

Academic responsibilities associated with this role will include delivering undergraduate and postgraduate lectures, practical classes and small group supervisions, engaging with the Research Theme initiatives, and positively contributing to the inclusive and collaborative ethos of the School.  Mentoring and professional development of staff and students is expected as part of our inclusive and supportive community

We particularly welcome applications from women, candidates who identify as Black or Asian and those who consider themselves to be racialized minorities, as they are currently under-represented at this level in the School of Biological Sciences. We offer mentoring and access to inclusion networks to support and empower individuals and enable an inclusive research culture.

The University of Cambridge is a signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), and we are committed to assessing research on the basis of its merits rather than the journal or venue in which it is published.  Applicants should not include Journal Impact Factors or journal titles as a proxy for research quality in their applications.
