University of Surrey in collaboration with The Pirbright Institute
Salary from £62,727 to £131,538
The University of Surrey is an international university with a teaching and research profile that is innovative, forward thinking and achieves notable results. As a result of our strategic plan, the School of Biosciences and Medicine in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is creating a new position for a Reader/Professor in Vaccinology. This is an exciting opportunity underpinned by a substantial philanthropic
contribution and a partnership between the University of Surrey and The Pirbright Institute.
Besides a vibrant working environment on a leafy campus in Guildford close to London (full relocation package available), this post offers extensive development opportunities and resources to support you to build your own research team and to fulfil your potential. The position will be based within the Section of Immunology at the University of Surrey, with a formal link to The Pirbright Institute enabling full collaboration
and laboratory access as a part of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded Pirbright Livestock Antibody Hub.
This hub will exploit the recent advances in our understanding of B cell responses to better understand the protective immune response in livestock and poultry with a strong translational and one health focus. Ultimately the Hub will support rational vaccinology approaches, antibody based treatment and prophylaxis as well as increasing the applicability of animals as models for human disease and treatment.
This post is designed to enable a high potential academic to take the next step in their research career, supported with a generous start up equipment/resource budget (c.£250k in the first three years) and four fully funded PhD studentships. Your profile will demonstrate success in the field of Vaccinology along with a clear strategy to attract and secure research funding. If a candidate is appointed to Reader level in the first instance, mentoring will be provided to support progression to professorial level.
Informal enquiries are encouraged to be made to Professor Deborah Dunn Walters, by email via email@example.com. Otherwise, we look forward to receiving your application here.
Deadline for applications is 30th of November 2020.
