Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
Institute of Infection and Global Health
The Institute of Infection and Global Health was established in 2010 to bring together leading infection and global health researchers from across the University. It integrates veterinary, medical and basic sciences to address major infectious diseases of humans and animals in the UK and globally and has built a track record of research excellence, embracing the “One Health” concept of disease control.
The university is seeking an outstanding early or mid-career scientist to lead a world class research programme in the area of the immunology of infectious disease. They are willing to appoint at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer, commensurate with experience. They anticipate that the appointee will complement the Institute’s existing research programmes and would welcome applications from immunologists working in any relevant area of pathogen immunology, including, but not restricted to, vaccine development for veterinary and/or medical pathogens, basic host/pathogen interactions and the immunology of co-infections. They would also expect the appointee to make a contribution to the Faculty’s Medical, Veterinary, Dental and/or Life Science undergraduate programmes and post-graduate taught programmes.
Applications are invited from outstanding immunologists who wish to develop their careers to the next level within our world class research and teaching environment. You will have an outstanding CV with evidence of success in attracting external funding and a track record of internationally excellent or world leading publications.
