Lecturer/Senior Lecturers in Cell Biology of Model Organisms, Imperial College

We are seeking individuals who would welcome the opportunity to forge a career built around innovative approaches to research and excellence in teaching. We aim to make up to 3 appointments in Cell Biology in the Department of Life Sciences (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/lifesciences) at the South Kensington campus of Imperial College London. The Department offers extensive opportunities for collaboration within a world-class modern infrastructure. We are particularly interested in recruiting individuals who use model organisms to study fundamental or integrative cell biology, which may include developmental biology. There is no restriction on the type of model organism proposed for research programmes, which may include C. elegans.

You will have a strong publication record and demonstrable ability to direct a competitive independent research programme. You should have the drive and ambition to be among the best in your research field, and will also contribute to our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. Whilst we anticipate that these appointments will be at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level, there is potential for appointment at more senior levels for outstanding candidates.
