Lecturer/Deputy Director For the Manchester EPSRC/BBSRC Doctoral Training Centre Integrative Systems Biology from Molecules to Life

(REF: EPS/180/06)

Salary range 30,067 - 38,772 per annum


Using modern mathematics and bioinformatics to make computer models of what functional genomics reveals of living organisms, and by engaging in the corresponding quantitative experimentation, Systems Biology seeks to understand how molecules are guided to self-organise into the complex processes that determine Life. These include the cell cycle, reproduction, adaptation to a variety of challenges, robust fluxes, and the formation of complex structures ( ). Following substantial investments in the brand-new Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (MIB, ), the Manchester Centre of Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB; ), and the AstraZeneca Chair of Systems Biology, The University of Manchester is now becoming unique world-wide by also having a doctoral training centre for Systems Biology, funded by EPSRC and BBSRC. Inspired by the research of many top scientists in Systems Biology, students with biological or medical backgrounds will be teamed up with students from a physical science/engineering/mathematics background to engage in extensive experimental and theoretical training in Systems Biology in the MIB and in partner groups all over the world.


The School of Chemical Engineering Sciences is seeking a Lecturer/Deputy Director for the Doctoral Training Centre who will organise the teaching of the courses, teach some of them, coach the doctoral students, and manage the centre on a day to day basis with the assistance of a personal assistant, an administrator and experimental officers. The Lecturer should also engage in top level Systems Biology research in the MCISB, with some of the doctoral students and with others.


The successful candidate will have extensive and excellent research and academic teaching experience in an area related to Systems Biology, as well as sufficient background knowledge of the areas to serve as a basis for teaching diverse aspects thereof.

Salary will be in the range of 30,067 - 38,772 per annum. This is a permanent position.
