Tenure-track Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader/Professor in Cell Signalling and Immunology

The University of Dundee invites applications from immunology focused groups to join them at the level of tenure-track Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor (Grade 8-10, dependent on experience) within their Division of Cell Signalling and Immunology, to expand and complement their Immunology research programme. These appointments will form part of a 5 year programme to recruit up to 45 research active Group Leaders/Principal Investigators across a number of disciplines within the School of Life Sciences.

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee is a world-class academic institution with a reputation for the excellence of its research, high-quality teaching and student experience, and the strong impact of its activities outside academia. With 900 staff from over 40 countries worldwide, the School provides a dynamic, multi-national, collegiate and diverse environment with state-of-the-art laboratory, technology and teaching facilities.

The University is interested in applications from academics at any stage of their career who will deliver research expertise in Molecular Immunology. They are particularly interested in candidates whose interests focus on cytokine responses, cell signalling, infectious disease, immunometabolism or neuroimmune research within the Molecular Immunology field, but will consider applications from strong candidates from a range of research backgrounds. You will join a team who are proud of their collegiate ethos in research into the fundamental molecular mechanisms which control immune responses.

In addition to the collegiate approach, a particular strength of the School of Life Sciences is the co-operative effort to establish and maintain state of the art technologies used for Immunology research and research-led teaching. These include an SPF animal facility, high-end imaging, spectral flow cytometry, proteomics, genomics, structural biology, cell sorting, and data analysis capabilities. 

Your priorities will include:

  • Producing high-quality 3/4* research outputs in molecular immunology
  • Leading an ambitious research programme, receiving significant research funding, and running a successful research group
