    Hull York Medical School is a collaboration between the Universities of Hull and York and the NHS. The School operates from both University campuses and within teaching hospitals and medical practices throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region. The School is committed to transforming the health of people within the region and beyond – through its students, staff and the impact of its teaching and research.

    This unique partnership brings together the expertise of both the Universities of Hull and York and offers a thriving environment in which to conduct world- leading research. Strong partnerships with NHS Trusts and community health organisations offer a wide clinical base within which to study those conditions, which most affect local communities – improving their health while developing research work that can be applied nationally and globally. The new Centre for Skin Research will be aligned with the theme of Immunology, Haematology and Infection (IHI), that encompasses fundamental studies on immunology, haematology, microbiology and parasitology through to first-in- human and other early phase clinical research.


    The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) at the University of York is looking to hire a Research Associate for their newly established Skin Research Centre (SRC).

    The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to research in cutaneous molecular pathology and have a keen interest in translation. Areas of interest include skin inflammation, skin infection, skin aging, pigmentation restoration, and novel therapeutics for skin disorders, including skin cancer.

    This position offers a high-quality research environment and access to state- of-the-art core facilities within the wider York Biomedical Research Institute (YBRI) community. Researchers dedicated to translational research will have the opportunity to excel and translate their clinically relevant findings into practice.

    This is a full-time role for 12 months.
