Nuffield Division of Clinical Laboratory Sciences, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford
At the Nuffield Division of Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NDCLS), part of the Radcliffe Department of Medicine (RDM), we are recruiting a Principal Investigator in Advanced Genetic Therapy, to complement our current research activities in translational gene and cell therapy, or in a closely related area. RDM is a large multi-disciplinary department, which aims to tackle some of the world's biggest health challenges by integrating innovative basic biology with cutting edge clinical research. We have internationally renowned programmes in a range of areas including cardiovascular sciences, diabetes and endocrinology, immunology, haematology and pathology. In NDCLS there is a strong focus on understanding human disease pathology at both the molecular and systems level with a strong drive to translate our findings into treatments for human disorders.
You will have a doctorate in biological sciences or a closely related area with a proven track record of high quality, internationally recognised research, as evidenced by a strong publication record commensurate with your career stage and previous success in securing your own research funding.

The successful candidate will have an interest in knowledge transfer and industrial collaboration, the commercialisation of intellectual property, and the impact of research translation beyond academia. Experience of teaching a range of topics within the field of biological sciences at undergraduate and graduate level would be an advantage, as would experience of supervising graduate students.
You will also have a proven record of successful collaboration with colleagues, and good academic citizenship. Ideally you will also have experience of engagement with initiatives in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and PPIE.
