Biomedical and Life Sciences within the Faculty of Health and Medicine, seeks to enhance its excellent research profile by appointing to two full-time, indefinite appointments: Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology, Senior Lecturer in Cancer Biology.

Biomedical and Life Sciences (BLS) is a growing, innovative and vibrant Department, whose research mission is to provide an understanding of the basic cellular and physiological mechanisms that underpin human health and disease. Research areas include, but are not limited to, cancer biology, infectious diseases, parasitology, virology, immunology, neuroscience, mental health and ageing. BLS laboratories have recently undergone extensive refurbishment, and facilities include dedicated CL2 and CL3 laboratory space, as well as a state- of-the-art bioimaging suite.

BLS has a strong interdisciplinary ethos and collaborates with colleagues in Lancaster Medical School and the Division of Health Research within the Faculty of Health and Medicine, as well as colleagues in Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Psychology and the Lancaster Environment Centre within the Faculty of Science and Technology.

Applicants should have an established or developing reputation in a relevant area of research, a supporting portfolio of high-quality research publications, detailed plans for future projects and outputs, and the potential to attract external grant income to support their research from a range of sources.

BLS delivers highly ranked degree programmes in Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, Biomedicine and Biology to over 600 undergraduate students, and we have a growing population of research and taught postgraduate students. The successful applicant will have a strong and active interest in teaching subjects related to our undergraduate programmes, plus an ability and willingness to engage with relevant external stakeholders of value to Lancaster University.

In return, the Department can offer you a friendly research and teaching environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee and actively promotes a healthy work-life balance. The Faculty is committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies and has held a Silver Athena SWAN award since 2014, in recognition of its good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.

Interviews for both appointments will take place during the week commencing 8th January 2024 and the formal start date will be as soon as possible thereafter.

We are actively committed to ensuring diversity in our staff roster, and we particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic scientists.
