Principal Investigators in Microbiome Research

Applications Close: 30 November 2018

Salary: Competitive

The Quadram Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute at the forefront of a new era in food, microbiome and health research. It brings together clinical and non-clinical scientists in a new £75m, state-of-the-art building due for occupation later this year. Based on the Norwich Research Park, home of the John Innes Centre, The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, The Earlham Institute and the University of East Anglia, it is one of the largest centres of life sciences in Europe.

We have a number of Principal Investigator roles within the Quadram Institute’s Gut Microbes and Health research programme to deliver scientific excellence and social and economic impact in microbiome research. We welcome applications from individuals undertaking exciting and innovative microbiome research that will enhance and build on ongoing projects aimed at defining the intercommunication and crosstalk between gut microbes and their host, and how these are first established in early life and are altered in later life, and in diseases affecting the gut and other organ systems. We would particularly welcome those with a focus on the mycobiome, and microbe-host interactions and their impact on organ systems beyond the gut including the brain.

Senior Principal Investigators, as Research Leaders, will have experience of leading and developing a successful research programme and research teams. They will be able to demonstrate an impressive publication record and have experience of achieving research funding. Early career Principal Investigators will have an excellent postdoctoral track record with the potential to develop and lead a high quality research programme.

Positions come with significant research support and administrative support. Tenure is available for senior appointees. We offer an exciting and innovative research environment, competitive salaries (depending on qualifications and experience) and a great place to live – relocation packages are available.
