The Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM) is a unique flagship institution, at the University of Oxford, and represents a dynamic and collaborative research environment, with 15-20 research groups and at full capacity 240 research staff investigating how understanding normal development can inform on strategies to regenerate diseased or injured tissues. Our interests span across three research themes: cardiovascular science, neuroscience and immunology, capturing three of the major organ systems targeted by non-communicable diseases.
The IDRM is offering a Transition Fellowship to support and develop an outstanding researcher at an intermediate/career development stage. In particular, we encourage candidates who already have a track record of interdisciplinary collaboration and can bridge across at least two of our themes to apply. Clinicians and Non-Clinicians are welcome to apply. We will award one Fellowship and appoint the Fellow either on Grade E63 (£32,398 - £63,152) for Clinicians or Grade 8 (£45,585 - £54,395) for Non-Clinicians. The selection process is based solely on how applicants match the essential criteria as outlined in the job description.
We are specifically looking for researchers seeking mentoring and sponsorship to apply for external career development fellowships (e.g. Wellcome Trust’s Career Development, MRC’s Career Development, BHF’s Intermediate Basic Science Research, UKRI Future Leaders, EPSRC Established Career).
The IDRM will make available funds for up to two years to support research costs, up-to a total of £200K (excluding the Fellow’s own salary costs), to relocate researchers into Oxford and the Institute and to enable them to capitalise on generating a competitive fellowship proposal with extensive pilot data and access to local collaborators and research platforms. Applications for external fellowship funding will need to be submitted at 18 months into the post.
Successful applicants will have post-doctoral experience, distinctive research achievements and a cutting-edge research plan for the next five years. The post holder will need to be able to work with and seek active collaboration with research partners from other disciplines. We look for individuals who have emerging independence in a field or cross-cutting themes that will add value to IDRM’s mission.
This post is fixed-term for two years.
Applicants must apply online and include a CV, publication list as well as a statement of career intentions. The supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience. Click here for information and advice on writing an effective Supporting Statement. Applicants must also provide a research plan outlining an overview of proposed research for the transition fellowship and how this will map onto an external application in 18 months' time. This should include a clear explanation of how the research will enhance cardiovascular, neurological or immunological programmes at the IDRM, a summary budget and a brief justification for the requested budget (maximum 4 pages including reference-list relevant to the proposed research project).
This role meets the criteria for a UK Skilled Worker visa.
