The University of Surrey is a global community of ideas and people, dedicated to life-changing education and research.

We are ambitious and have a bold vision of what we want to achieve - shaping ourselves into one of the best universities in the world, which we are achieving through the talents and endeavour of every employee.  

Our culture empowers people to achieve this aim and to collectively, and individually, make a real difference.  

The role

This is a unique opportunity to work with an established team of researchers with a proven track record in delivering world-leading research in human chronobiology. The research project involves two major human laboratory experiments in our renowned Clinical Research Facility and analysis of a broad scope of temporal data, ranging from subjective questionnaires through to endocrine markers and metabolomics. The successful candidate will play a major role in co-ordinating and running the human laboratory experiments, together with analysis of resulting experimental data and samples. The role will also entail day-to-day supervision of a Research Technician working on the project, and so provides an opportunity to develop managerial skills.

About you

You should be a highly motivated individual with, or about to obtain, a PhD in a relevant area (e.g. chronobiology, human nutrition, human metabolism). Consideration will also be given to those without a PhD but with the required skills and experience. The human laboratory experiments are intensive periods of work, each lasting 1-2 weeks, and you should be willing and able to commit to on-site out of hours work during those times.

What we can offer

In addition to your salary, you will receive pension contributions, a generous annual leave entitlement, relocation assistance where appropriate, an attractive research environment, and access to a variety of staff development opportunities. Furthermore, our benefit packages include childcare assistance and discounted membership to University sports facilities.

How to apply

To apply for this role, please submit your CV and a cover letter addressing the major requirements of the post.

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Jonathan Johnston (

Interviews will take place via MS Teams on Friday 26 April.

The University of Surrey is committed to providing an inclusive environment that offers equal opportunities for all.  We place great value on diversity and are seeking to increase the diversity within our community.  Therefore we particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups, such as people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities.
