Shortlisted candidates would have also demonstrated independence through external fellowships or peer-review funding. The main duties of this post will be to undertake discovery science, secure external funding to prosecute an independent research programme and educate undergraduate and post graduate students. Specifically, they will contribute to the Department's teaching of pre-clinical students studying for the 1st BM and FHS Medical Sciences, and of non-medical students studying the FHS course in Biomedical Sciences, as well as college teaching and tutorials.
You should have a higher degree (DPhil/PhD) in a relevant area of research; show evidence of excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, supervision and research training, and a strong demonstrable commitment to the organisation and delivery of teaching in both Department and College. You will show evidence of substantial independent research accomplishment and a strong publication record, as well as evidence of a substantial and realisable research plan which will complement the Department's research strategy. You should also have the ability and willingness to undertake some administrative duties within the Department and the College, and to undertake teaching in the tutorial context and the pastoral care of students.
