Two appointments in immunology and one appointment in bacteriology at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader level.

Infection and Immunity, Bristol University

The School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Bristol is undertaking a major initiative to further strengthen its internationally competitive research base in infection and immunity. We seek to make two appointments in immunology and one appointment in bacteriology at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader level. 
We encourage applicants that complement and enhance current School activities in Immunology (autoimmunity, inflammation, molecular immunology, tumour immunology, host pathogen interactions) and Bacteriology (antimicrobial drug resistance, bacterial pathogenesis, vaccinology). The positions will be based in the Biomedical Sciences Building with access to outstanding core facilities (including Proteomics, Imaging, Genomics, and Cell Sorting). The School also has a proven track record for translational work (five world-leading 4* “Impact Cases” in the REF2014).
The successful candidates will bring creative high impact research programmes to undertake internationally competitive research supported by external funding. They will also contribute to the teaching of postgraduate and undergraduate students within the School and across the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences. With over 30 research groups in the School working in cancer biology, infection and immunity and stem cell biology, and close relationships with other Schools within the University, there are extensive opportunities for collaboration within a world-class environment. 
Potential applicants are encouraged to make general informal enquiries through the Head of School, Professor Chris Paraskeva (C.Paraskeva@Bristol.ac.uk) the School Research Director, Professor Stefan Roberts (Stefan.Roberts@bristol.ac.uk) or Director of Teaching, Dr. Keith Brown (keith.brown@bristol.ac.uk). 
The University of Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/) was ranked among the top five institutions in the UK for its research, according to the Research Excellence Framework: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2015/january/ref-update.html
Applications should include a 2-page summary of research accomplishments and future plans. 
We have other routes for recruitment at Professor level and informal enquiries should be sent to the Head of School, Professor Chris Paraskeva. 
Closing date for applications is midnight Tuesday 22 November 2016.
