Interview Date:   Tuesday 12 February 2019

Lancaster University has a world-class reputation as a centre for excellence in teaching and research and is highly ranked in each of the UK’s major university league tables. The Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences, within the Faculty of Health and Medicine, now seeks to enhance its already strong profile of excellence by appointing a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer. 

We want you to become part of a rapidly growing, innovative and vibrant Division whose research effort is directed towards understanding basic cellular and physiological mechanisms that underpin disease states. We are particularly interested if you are working in the area of neuroscience or neurodegeneration, but other research areas of interest include infectious diseases, parasitology, ageing, immunology and cancer biology. 

We are looking for a dynamic individual who will participate fully in the intellectual and collective life of the Division and who will maintain a high quality research agenda that reaches out to external networks of collaborators.  You should have publications at a level appropriate for the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 and beyond. You should also be enthusiastic and keen to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at a level appropriate to the post you are applying for. 

In return the Division can offer you a friendly research environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee and which actively promotes a healthy work-life balance. The Faculty is committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies and has held a Silver Athena SWAN award since 2014 (recently renewed) in recognition of its good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research. Part-time/job share/flexible working applications will be considered.
