Department of Biochemistry in association with Brasenose College
The Department of Biochemistry is seeking to recruit an Associate Professor leading an innovative research programme investigating mechanisms of gene regulation and their role in fundamental biological processes, for example animal development and model organisms, immunobiology, or neurobiology. The appointee is expected to join the chromosome and RNA biology theme group (https: // www. bioch.ox.ac.uk/chromosomal-and-rna-biology). In addition to your research, you will contribute to teaching the next generation of Biochemists through our 4-year Masters-level degree course in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry and by acting as a Tutorial Fellow at Brasenose College.
You will join one of our highly interactive interdisciplinary research themes applying biochemical, biophysical and computational approaches to major questions in cell and developmental biology, human health and infectious disease processes. High quality laboratory and office space will be provided in the newly completed Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Building housing the Biochemistry Department and our research facilities. We have a strong commitment to career development and mentoring at all career stages, and all our groups share state-of-the art research support for computation, structural, cellular and molecular biology and have access to a range of Departmental and University PhD training programmes.
You should have a higher degree (DPhil/PhD) and postdoctoral experience in a relevant biologically-related science; a strong track record of published research and commitment to attract research funding; verified experience of undergraduate teaching; proven ability to contribute to the teaching, training and supervision of graduate students; good communication and interpersonal skills; the ability and commitment to undertake a range of administrative duties within both the Department and the College, and to contribute to outreach activities and widening access.
