Applications are sought from established as well as career development researchers with interests in nervous system and/or human development, including stem cells and organoid approaches. We are also seeking cell biologists with interests in signalling, trafficking and cell adhesion.
Applicants will be expected to be competitive for personal fellowships and/or programme level grant support and have a strong publication record. For career development researchers the start-up package typically includes financial support for relocation and
essential equipment and a defined transition to tenure after 5-6 years. New researchers are supported by a structured mentoring programme. The University of Dundee operates policies enabling flexible working to ensure a good work life balance.
The Division of Cell & Developmental Biology consists of 8 research groups studying the regulation of differentiation in developing organisms, stem cells and adult tissues and how this is altered in disease states. Our work combines classical embryology, cell biological and genetic approaches as well as mathematical modelling to understand gene function and regulation in differentiating tissues. A particular shared interest is in epithelial cell biology, and this has led to our cooperative effort to maintain and develop state of the art imaging technologies. The Division also hosts the Dundee Human Pluripotent Cell Facility, which provides quality controlled human pluripotent cells and training in their use.
How to apply: please provide CV, details of 3 academic referees and a brief summary of future research plans. For informal enquiries please contact
