Applications are invited for a research-oriented, tenure-track University Lectureship in Developmental Neurobiology, available from 1 October 2019. Based in central Cambridge, we are keen to recruit a pioneering researcher working at this key interface between neuroscience and development, two major themes in our Department (http://www.pdn.cam.ac.uk/research/). We are therefore searching for an outstanding scientist, with an excellent publication record, undertaking cutting edge and fundable work in any aspect of nervous system development.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in a relevant subject area, will have an aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching, and be willing to contribute effectively to our undergraduate programmes in preclinical medicine, preclinical veterinary science, and natural sciences (http://www.pdn.cam.ac.uk/teaching). He/she will be expected to contribute to the design and delivery of undergraduate and graduate lecture courses and to perform other academic duties including administration, examining and assessment.

We particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

Informal enquiries may be made to the joint Heads of Department, Professors Sarah Bray and Bill Colledge (pdnhod@hermes.cam.ac.uk; +44 (0) 1223 333772).

The appointment will be made at University Lecturer level with a probationary period of five years, with appointment to the retirement age thereafter subject to satisfactory progress. The pensionable salary scale starts at £39,992 to £50,618 per annum. Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment, with a satisfactory outcome determined by the University.
