Following a recent major award, our Diabetes Centre of Excellence is expanding substantially.
This permanent, full time or part time post is available at the University of Exeter Medical School, College of Medicine & Health, based in Exeter.
Summary of the role
The post holder will lead a dynamic research group which will develop ideas, secure funding and deliver innovative research projects, they will supervise and enthuse undergraduate and postgraduate students in research and excel at teaching. The post holder will produce research outputs at an appropriate level and disseminate their research to academic, healthcare and patient communities. Collaboration with other colleagues in the College of Medicine and Health, the Living Systems Institute, Centre for Medical Mycology and Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is very much encouraged as is the development of external national and international collaborations.
Applications from specialists in Immunology are very welcome. The immunologists will be able to work on novel and pioneering approaches using unique human pancreas samples obtained at the time of diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. The ultimate aim is to understand the underlying disease processes in order to stimulate the development and application of novel immunotherapies and inform the design of new clinical trials. The availability of our new high-resolution, automated, digital pathology system will support this work by superseding current more laborious methods of image analysis. Interdisciplinary work will be with our Living Systems Institute.
A particular interest in individuals who:
will bring their leadership, tools and skills and contribute their expertise to this diabetes research in the areas of Bayesian Statistics, Artificial Intelligence, Immunology and Cell Biology
and have educational strengths in the above areas
Applications welcome from individuals who have the skills described above but who have not, as yet, applied those skills to diabetes research but are keen to do so, as well as those already working in diabetes and its associated conditions.
