About the Role
We are seeking to appoint a committed and passionate academic with a clear vision and excellent interpersonal skills, as the new Professor of Neuroscience in our expanding Department of Biosciences. You will undertake personal research at the forefront of neuroscience research at a professorial level, contributing to the strategic direction of the Centre for Systems Health and Integrated Metabolic Research (SHiMR). SHiMR takes a multi-disciplinary approach to discovering the mechanisms underpinning ageing- and life-style- related metabolic decline, neurological disorders, immune-metabolic aspects of cancer and its related therapeutics (including the affiliated John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre: JvGCRC), and the interface of the microbiota with health and disease. The goal of the Centre is to enrich the fundamental knowledge-base underpinning future interventions and therapies to support healthy ageing in society.
You will also develop, lead, and inspire research and teaching activity which enhances the profile of Biosciences/SHiMR and drives our mission to turn discovery into health by accelerating the translation of basic science towards improved patient outcomes.
The post holder will further establish NTU Biosciences as an internationally recognised force, bringing together interdisciplinary experts under the collective mission of innovating neuroscience research and education, with the goal of improving the global understanding of health and wellbeing.
This post offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to mold, and mentor junior scientists, further develop the already substantial facilities at our Clifton campus and promote our research excellence to stakeholders.
The University is making multi-million-pound investments in both buildings and equipment at the award-winning “green” Clifton campus. You will work primarily within our Interdisciplinary Science and Technology (ISTeC) building and have access to our state-of-the-art facilities for imaging, spatial transcriptomics and in vivo metabolic analysis, interacting with the JvGCRC and recently established medical technology innovation facility (MTIF).
The School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is an exciting multidisciplinary environment for learning, teaching and research, with some of the best facilities in the UK.
We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality teaching and diverse, real-world research. We specialise in biosciences, chemistry, computing and technology, as well as engineering, forensic science, mathematics, physics and sport science. This mix of traditional and modern subjects encourages and inspires future innovators.
Our courses in the Department of Biosciences are research-led, providing students with cutting-edge knowledge and access to high-specification facilities. It is one of the many reasons why our courses are accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, the Royal Society of Biology and the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environment Management.
For any informal queries about the role or the team, please contact Professor Nik Morton (Director of SHiMR Centre) at email@example.com.
At NTU, we continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the diverse voices and experiences of our students and colleagues. We welcome the unique contributions that you can bring and we encourage people from underrepresented communities and backgrounds to apply to join our team.
