Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in Living Systems (Education & Research) (Ref: P01007)

The starting salary will be from £34,520 up to £42,418 on Grade F for Lecturers and £42,418 - £56,950 on Grade G for Senior Lecturers, depending on qualifications and experience.

The Living Systems Institute (LSI) is a major new initiative by the University of Exeter designed to promote interdisciplinary research that transcends the boundaries of mathematics, engineering and the biological, medical and physical sciences. Its mission is to analyse living cells and organisms as integrated systems, with the aim of unravelling how diseases disrupt biological processes at the molecular, cellular and organismal level.

The award winning £52m LSI building was opened in autumn 2016 and currently houses 23 Principal Investigators drawn both from newly recruited staff from leading institutions around the world (https://www.exeter.ac.uk/livingsystems/team/faculty/) and existing University of Exeter staff.

Whilst our principal criterion is scientific excellence, we are particularly interested in investigators in the areas of behavioural neuroscience and host-microbiome interactions and especially those using non-mammalian model systems. We have outstanding facilities for aquatic organisms in the newly remodelled Aquatic Resources Centre (https://www.exeter.ac.uk/research/marine/facilities/) as well as Drosophila and other invertebrates. Researchers using computational approaches are also encouraged to apply.

About you

The successful applicants will be established or emerging leaders in their field of research with an international reputation and expertise in any of the natural sciences or mathematics.

  • Enthusiasm for delivering high quality undergraduate programmes

For Senior Lecturer, in addition to the above, you will have:

  • A strong potential for research leadership
  • A track record in refereed publications and success in significant grant capture
  • Relationships with external organisations and funders/ and knowledge and experience of key sectors or business challenges

What we can offer you

  • Freedom (and the support) to pursue your intellectual interests and to work creatively across disciplines to produce internationally exciting research;
  • Support teams that understand the University wide research and teaching goals and partner with our academics accordingly
  • An Innovation, Impact and Business directorate that works closely with our academics providing specialist support for external engagement and development
