The Division of Cell Signalling and Immunology, within the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for at least three new members of staff to join us and expand our world-class immunology research and education programmes.

We are looking to appoint to any position on the University salary scale from new Principal Investigator, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor. At least 2 positions will be available for new investigators wishing to establish their first laboratory. A strong recruitment package will be made available to candidates at all levels of appointment. We are especially interested in applications from candidates with research programmes focused in exciting areas of fundamental or translational molecular immunology. A particular strength of the division is in immunometabolism and cell signalling, but there are also excellent opportunities in microbial and parasite immunology, eg through collaborations with other divisions.

Candidates will:

  • Have a PhD in immunobiology or another relevant discipline.
  • Run (or plan to establish) a vibrant, externally-funded and internationally regarded research programme at a level commensurate with career stage. The research topic should complement and enhance our current research expertise.
  • Be willing and able to contribute to the supervision, mentoring and training of postgraduate students.
  • Be willing and able to contribute to the design and delivery of immunology teaching at a level appropriate for career stage; for example, by delivery of lectures and/or tutorials on subject-specific topics and supervision of project students at Honours and Master of Science levels.
  • Be willing and able to perform limited administrative academic duties as agreed with the Head of the Division and/or the Dean of the School of Life Sciences.
