Quadram Institute Bioscience provides a stimulating and rewarding environment to work in. Research Group Leaders lead small teams that use multidisciplinary approaches to tackling major societal challenges such as healthier ageing, reducing the burden of disease, and healthier and more sustainable food.
The Quadram Institute is part of the Norwich Research Park, which is home to six institutions carrying out world-leading research, an internationally renowned university, a major hospital with clinical research facilities and around 30 science and technology businesses. With over 11,000 people including 3,000 scientists and clinicians and an annual research spend of over £100 million, the Norwich Research Park is Europe’s leading centre for research in Food, Health and the Environment.
Quadram Institute Bioscience benefits from its location on the edge of Norwich, combining a pleasant location set in 230 hectares of parkland with proximity to Norwich, a vibrant city that mixes the past and the future to make an inspiring place to live and work.
We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. As part of that commitment we signed up to the Athena Swan Charter and were awarded Bronze status on International Women’s Day in March 2022. Athena Swan was originally established to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths, and medicine (STEMM). The Charter now includes addressing gender equality more broadly, not just the barriers to progression that affect women.
