Two year fellowship post available for early career researchers

Are you a postdoctoral scientist or a graduate student close to submitting your thesis, in any area of natural sciences relating to Pharmacology, and seeking to develop your own independent research career?

The Department of Pharmacology is searching for its next Blaschko Fellow, an ideal position for an early career researcher which provides salary support for 2 years, support and mentorship from an established member of academic staff, a small budget for travel and consumables, and access to accommodation and facilities provided by Linacre College.

You will be expected to formulate and develop your own research strategy, testing hypotheses and analysing scientific data from a variety of sources. While you will work independently, you will be embedded within an existing group within Pharmacology to provide you with access to space and facilities along with support and guidance. You will have the opportunity to develop ideas for new research projects as well as working on the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles and papers and posters for presentation at conferences.

You must have a PhD in an appropriate science (eg pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, medicine, physics, computing, neuroscience) or have submitted your thesis by the time of appointment. In addition, you should be able to demonstrate that you have sufficient specialist knowledge in your particular discipline to work alongside established research programmes and that you can manage your own academic research activities.

This post is available from 1 July 2020 and is fixed-term for 2 years, funded by the Blaschko Trust.

The closing date for applications is 12.00noon on Thursday 27 February 2020.

Applications should be made online at: http://bit.ly/Blaschko
