We now wish to appoint an outstanding individual who will provide expertise to both the department’s research themes (Drug & Target Discovery, Medicine Design and Clinical Research) and the newly established Centre for Therapeutic Innovation (Bath CTI) in the areas of advanced cell and molecular biology and/or biophysics.  This will complement existing skills and interests in the areas of molecular pharmacology, signal transduction, (mechanisms, markers and treatment of) inflammation, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology and (bio)pharmaceutical sciences particularly in the area of drug delivery. The individual will be working closely with the Director of CTI (Prof. Banafshe Larijani) and will play a leading role in establishing focused interface projects with various researchers in the department and in BathCTI. We are particularly interested to hear from applicants with recent experience in advanced molecular biology, signalling and biophysics.

It is anticipated that the post-holder will have a strong research portfolio (including high impact publications, grant income and collaborations at national and/or international level) and will be able to enhance the Department’s and the Centre’s research capabilities.  The successful applicant be expected to make a significant contribution to both research capacity in the department and BathCTI, as well to teaching on our UG programs in Pharmacology, Pharmacy, Natural Sciences and Biomedical Sciences.
