University Academic Fellow in High-Throughput Molecular Discovery

Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher aspiring to become an academic leader in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Would your academic career be accelerated by starting your research programme at the Rosalind Franklin Institute? Do you have an excellent research background directly relevant to high-throughput molecular discovery and chemical biology?

With a vision and drive to develop a prestigious internationally competitive research portfolio as well as a passion for undertaking research-led teaching you will make a significant impact on the performance, stature and profile of research and student education at the University of Leeds.

This University Academic Fellowship (UAF) is for future academic leaders providing an excellent opportunity to establish an academic career at a research intensive university and play a key role in our ambitious plans for the future.

You will establish a research programme at the Rosalind Franklin Institute that will integrate and collaborate across its themes, and align with relevant research at the University of Leeds. The post will be based within the Franklin’s Next-Generation Chemistry for Medicine group, and will have an emphasis on high-throughput molecular discovery. You will integrate data science and high-throughput experimentation to achieve a step-change in molecular discovery capabilities, and you will apply your novel approaches in collaboration with colleagues at the Franklin and the University of Leeds. Particularly relevant to this post is the High-Throughput Molecular Discovery facility that the Franklin is establishing that will integrate high-throughput chemistry, analysis, purification and biological evaluation.

The Franklin is at the heart of the UK’s national laboratory campus at Harwell in the Thames Valley, just 15 minutes from Oxford and next door to many of the leading national facilities. Your independent programme will therefore be delivered in a creative environment provides unrivalled opportunities for collaboration and to launch your academic career. The normal expectation is that this role will relocate to the University of Leeds after five years.

You will embark on a structured five year development programme, successful completion of which will lead to your appointment as a grade 9 Associate Professor.

With a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in a relevant to field, you will have significant proven research experience within the academic discipline with a developing record of internationally excellent publications. You will have the potential and commitment to undertake high quality and innovative teaching, the ability to obtain competitive research funding and a clear and compelling academic plan that will deliver academic and more general impact at an international level.
