The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG), and St Hilda’s College are seeking to appoint a full-time Associate Professor of Neuroscience with a focus on the neurobiology of degeneration to complement existing research in the Department and across the University in the fields of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and motor neuron disease (to commence employment as soon as possible). This is a joint appointment: you will be a member of DPAG as well as a Tutorial Fellow at St Hilda’s College. The role will involve undertaking independent research, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and graduate supervision.

As Associate Professor, you will be expected to carry out high level original and independent research in an area complementary to the department’s Research Centre for Neuroscience. The main duties of this post will be to undertake discovery science, secure external funding to prosecute an independent research programme and educate undergraduate and post graduate students. You will have an ability to contribute to the teaching and training of pre-clinical students studying for the degree of Bachelor of Medicine for the Department and College, and of non-medical students studying the Biomedical Sciences degree course. You should have a higher degree (DPhil/PhD) in a relevant area of research; show evidence of excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, supervision and research training, and have a commitment to the organisation and delivery of teaching. You will show evidence of substantial independent research accomplishment and a strong publication record, as well as evidence of a substantial and realisable research plan which will complement the department’s research strategy.
