The University of Warwick has initiated a Wellcome-Trust funded research programme in “Quantitative Biomedicine” to bridge physical / mathematical sciences and biomedicine. The programme is of a cross-campus nature with strong participation from the Division of Biomedical Cell Biology and the Warwick Systems Biology Centre.
We are seeking early career researchers who are no more than 4 years from obtaining a Doctoral degree with the potential to lead a strong independent research programme. The candidates will be selected based on their track record in innovative research and on the strength of the research proposal. Importantly, the proposals should make clear how the project benefits from quantitative methodologies. The proposed research programme should bring together physical and mathematical sciences and biomedical sciences (including cell and developmental biology, neurobiology, immunology, microbiology and infection). Identified candidates will be provided salary, laboratory space, running costs and part-time technical support for three years. The successful candidates will be expected to win externally funded fellowships within the contract period and will be mentored in preparing such applications.
Interested candidates should submit their CV, a two-page research proposal, and the names and addresses of three referees who are able to comment on the candidates past research work as well as the readiness of the candidate to embark on an independent career in research.
