Applications are invited from early career researchers for an open-ended faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor in the School of Biosciences and within a new interdisciplinary Centre for Environmental Research and Justice (CERJ) at the University of Birmingham UK.

We are recruiting a systems biologist or perturbation biologist, broadly defined. Of particular interest are applicants who do research in areas such as (but not limited to) systems genetics, network biology, and multi-omics, including studies of the interactome. Candidates who are investigating the genetics of exposure-related diseases are also encouraged to apply. A successful applicant will use their knowledge and skills to understand the biomolecular processes that are susceptible to environmental factors, resulting in adverse health effects to humans and/or the environment. Having previous experience in New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) adds value to this open faculty post.

Activities within the Centre: The successful candidate will have access to unique state-of-the-art facilities, including the Phenome Centre Birmingham, and is expected to use these technologies or a combination thereof to produce novel discoveries on the (dis)regulation of biological processes. Experience in applied statistics, network modelling, big data science or chemo-informatics will be an asset, but other analytical approaches are also welcome. Priority will be given to candidates with a demonstrated interdisciplinary approach to science and who will show synergies with existing research teams in CERJ.

For the broad description of the successful candidate’s responsibilities within the Centre for Environmental Research and Justice, please see the ‘research’, ‘education’, ‘management/administration’, and ‘citizenship’ headings in the below University of Birmingham jobs advert.

Person Spec

  • A PhD degree and post-doctoral research experience.
  • Demonstrated experience in research pertaining to systems biology, perturbation biology or mechanistic toxicology, which may include the development and applications of new approaches to analysing high throughput data. Applicants using in vitro methods and model systems are particularly encouraged to apply.
  • A commitment to working with the university’s business engagement and knowledge transfer teams to develop links to industry and/or government agencies.
  • Demonstrated excellence in at least Research, with competence in Learning and Teaching, and in Management and Administration.
