The School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Bristol seeks to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (depending on experience) with a commitment to educational excellence and to further strengthen its internationally competitive research base in Virology.
Research in the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is focused on Cancer Biology, Infection and Immunity, and Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cells with a strong international track record in all these areas, including for translational work. CMM hosts a large community of researchers working on multiple aspects of Infection and Immunity research, including virology, bacteriology, antimicrobial resistance and the biology of infection and of immune responses. You would be joining existing interdisciplinary teams working on a wide variety of microorganisms that cause infectious diseases, including the viruses SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses, HIV, HTLV and Dengue virus.
The position will be based in the Biomedical Sciences Building with access to outstanding core facilities (including Proteomics, Imaging, Genomics, Animal and Flow Cytometry), as well as access to newly built secure containment level 3 laboratory facilities for the study of Infectious Diseases.
The University of Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/) was ranked among the top five institutions in the UK for its research, according to the Research Excellence Framework 2021: ttp://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2015/january/ref-update.html.
What will you be doing?
The successful candidate will bring a creative high impact research programme to undertake internationally competitive research supported by external funding. They will contribute to the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students within the School and across the Faculty of Life Sciences in the area of Virology. With over 30 research groups in the School working in cancer biology, infection and immunity and stem cell biology, and close relationships with other Schools within the University, there are extensive opportunities for collaboration within a world-class environment.
You should apply if
The successful applicant will be a research leader with a proven international track record commensurate with experience. We encourage applicants that complement and enhance current School activities in Virology (research and teaching) and have the potential to collaborate with aspects of our other research themes in Infection and Immunity (incorporating bacteriology, immunology and virology), Cancer Biology, and Tissue Engineering and Stem Cell Therapies.
Potential applicants are encouraged to make general informal enquiries through the Head of School, Professor Anne Ridley FRS (Anne.Ridley@bristol.ac.uk), Professor Andrew Davidson (Professor of Systems Virology; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor David Matthews (Professor of Virology; email@example.com).
