The School of Biochemistry at the University of Bristol is seeking to further strengthen its internationally competitive research base in cell biology through a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level appointment.

We encourage applications from research fellows and senior postdoctoral researchers whose research interests complement and enhance current School activities which extend from established cell biology studies in membrane trafficking (endocytic network, biosynthetic pathway, autophagy) and cytoskeletal regulation (actin dynamics, cell:cell and cell:matrix interactions, cell movement and invasion) through to the study of cell behaviour in tissues and model organisms. The position will be based in the Biomedical Sciences Building with access to outstanding state-of-the-art core technologies (including proteomics, light and electron microscopy (inc. cryo-EM for structural biology), protein expression, and genomics), and Ph.D. training programmes funded through the Wellcome Trust, the Medical Research Council, and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.

The successful candidate will bring and develop a creative high impact research programme to undertake internationally competitive research supported by external funding (the School’s annual grant expenditure exceeds £8M). With over 35 research groups in the School working in cell biology, biomolecular structure and function, and synthetic biology, and close relationships with other Schools within the University, there are extensive opportunities for world-class collaborative research across a broad array of clinical and non-clinical health related areas (see www.bristol.ac.uk/biochemistry/, www.bristol.ac.uk/biomedical-sciences/ and www.bristol.ac.uk/blackwell/ for details).

The University of Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/) was ranked among the top five institutions in the UK for its research, according to the Research Excellence Framework: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2015/january/ref-update.html

Applications should be received by 11.59pm on Wednesday the 29th of March 2017.

The selection process will be held over two days on the 26th and 27th of April 2017.

Potential applicants are encouraged to make general informal enquiries through the Head of School, Professor Kate Nobes (bioc-hod@bristol.ac.uk) or the School Research Director, Professor Peter Cullen (Pete.Cullen@bristol.ac.uk).

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
