Lecturer in Immunology

This post constitutes an important addition to the Section of Immunology, in the Department of Biochemical Sciences, one of four departments in the School that is home to 85 academic staff.  In the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), we were ranked eighth out of 94 institutions in the Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing, and Pharmacy category.

Immunology is a discipline which complements many aspects of research within the School.  It is underpinned by excellent modern research facilities and a discipline we are expanding through recruiting to the present post and also to a professorial position in this area, further enhancing a strong partnership with The Pirbright Institute.  We are now seeking new talent to complement our existing strengths and bring their own expertise and excellence to help deliver future research success.  This new post is designed to enable a high potential early career academic to take the next step in their research career, supported with a start-up fund to resource a PhD studentship.

You will demonstrate success at Surrey through applying for and obtaining external funding, through high quality publications and impact, contributing to the teaching of aspects of immunology and related subjects, such as biochemistry and molecular biology along with supervision of doctoral level research.  Successful applicants will have a PhD in a relevant subject, bring a record of achievement in research and be capable of forging appropriate networks locally, nationally and internationally.

In return, we offer an energetic and forward-thinking working environment with access to a variety of staff development opportunities.  You will also receive a competitivesalary and a generous annual leave entitlement, USS pension scheme and discounted membership to the Surrey Sports Park.  The University is easily accessible by road and rail and is a short distance from both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
