Research Fellows – Career Opportunities in Life Sciences


We offer an attractive and flexible fellowship scheme for Independent Research Fellows with substantive external funding to join the Faculty of Life Sciences as Principal Investigators. For Fellows bringing in 4-5 years of external funding (on qualifying schemes), the Faculty will either fund 1 to 2 years additional support at the end of their Fellowship, or support outstanding candidates for 1-2 years before their fellowship is awarded. This scheme reflects our desire to ensure that Fellows can perform to their full potential and develop highly competitive biology research programmes.
 
The Faculty has an enduring record of recruiting outstanding scientists to undertake fellowships in Manchester, with an excellent track record in retaining independent fellows as permanent academic members of staff. In 2011 three of the four nationally awarded BBSRC David Phillips Fellowships went to scientists in the Faculty of Life Sciences.
 
The world-class research in our Faculty is organised into 13 interconnected areas, (www.manchester.ac.uk/lifesciences/research/researchgroups), and we are recruiting in any of these. The Faculty’s research spans the entire spread of life sciences from molecules to cells to organisms and environmental sciences. We are interested in dynamic successful individuals with an outstanding record of achievement at the post-doctoral or junior investigator level. The Faculty offers a vibrant collaborative research environment, being one of the largest and most successful research organisations of its type in Europe. At the latest Research Assessment Exercise, it was ranked in the top three life science departments in the country. Investigators are housed in purpose-built laboratory and office space (most less than 7 years old) with access to superb state-of-the-art core facilities.
