Are you an academic with a passion to deliver an exceptional student experience? Do you have an excellent research record and ambition to further develop your career in a research intensive Russell Group University?

Your role will be to (i) assume Prof Wilson's teaching and administrative responsibilities including delivery of lectures, tutorials, laboratory demonstrating, and undergraduate recruitment activities (ii) work with Prof Wilson in running his research group and ongoing collaborative research, (iii) exploit this opportunity as a mechanism to further develop your independent academic career. 

The research team led by Prof Wilson is a prominent component within the Chemical Biology and Medicinal Chemistry Research grouping, which is one of our six major research groups within the School. Prof Wilson’s team pursue multidisciplinary research across a broad array of topics, leading the PoPPI EPSRC Programme Grant on Inhibitors of Protein-Protein Interactions, whilst participating in a further EPSRC Programme Grant on Next Generation Lithium Ion Batteries, and a European Network focussed on stabilizing protein-protein interactions. The team are highly active members of the World-renowned Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
