Are you an early career researcher interested in the cell or molecular mechanisms underlying disease? Do you have an outstanding record and an innovative research plan?
The Sir William Dunn School of Pathology at the University of Oxford is looking for outstanding early career researchers seeking a stimulating and supportive environment in which to establish their research group as externally-funded fellows. We are specifically looking for researchers seeking mentoring and sponsorship to apply for career development fellowships (e.g. Wellcome Trust Career Development Award, MRC Career Development Award, CRUK Career Development Fellowship, UKRI Future Leaders, etc). Researchers who succeed in securing a fellowship will then be invited to establish their independent group in the department, benefiting from a generous support package, comprehensive mentorship, career development training and opportunities to recruit Oxford undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Successful candidates will have an outstanding track record in any area of biomedical research, with a particular focus on the fundamental cell and molecular biology underlying disease. The Department celebrates diversity and we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds that are currently underrepresented at the University of Oxford.
The Dunn School is a dynamic and collaborative department, with 30 research groups and roughly 300 research staff investigating the biology underlying disease, using a wide range of basic and translational approaches. Our interests span many disciplines including cell and molecular biology, microbiology, development, immunology and cancer biology. Our researchers have access to excellent scientific facilities and support services, and the stimulating environment of the South Parks Road science area in particular, and the wider University of Oxford in general.
