The Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme was established to enhance the world-class interdisciplinary research environment at the University of Warwick by driving further development of our existing centres of excellence, including the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology (www.mechanochemistry.org) and the Zeeman Institute for Systems Biology& Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research.
Warwick Medical School is seeking to appoint three outstanding early career scientists as Assistant Professors in Quantitative Biomedicine, aiming to expand our research on cell dynamics at the molecular, cellular and/or tissue scales. We are eager to recruit candidates using quantitative and/or interdisciplinary approaches and with an exemplary track record in cell biology, developmental biology, structural biology, computational biology or biophysics.
Successful candidates must have a strong track record with first class publications,together with the enthusiasm and expertise to contribute to our innovative undergraduate taught programme in Interdisciplinary Science. Evidence of being able to attract funding and/or fellowships would be a further advantage. You will also contribute to the Public Engagement interface of the QBP.
Successful candidates will receive a start-up package, laboratory space in the brand new extension to our mechanochemical cell biology building, access to state-of-the-art infrastructure, including light and electron microscopy, advanced proteomics, and support from our thriving and dynamic research community.
The posts will be in the Division of Biomedical Sciences, Warwick Medical School and the successful candidates will be expected to play an active role in advancing the mission of the QBP. The posts will be subject to a five year probation period and once successfully completed, promotion to Associate Professor will follow, subject to criteria set out by the University of Warwick being met.
Potential candidates are encouraged to make informal contact with the Directors of the Wellcome Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme, Profs. Mohan Balasubramanian (M.K.Balasubramanian@warwick.ac.uk) and Andrew McAinsh (A.D.McAinsh@wawick.ac.uk).
To be considered, please fill out an online application, including a CV, names of three expert referees who are able to comment on your readiness to embark on an independent career, a one-page cover letter and a two-page research proposal describing an exciting research program in cell dynamics.
