About the role

We are seeking to appoint a Professor to join the Department of Respiratory Sciences to support our delivery of high-quality research and teaching, with a particular focus on Respiratory Immunology. 

The successful candidate will investigate fundamental mechanisms underlying respiratory diseases and use and/or establish different modelling strategies (i.e. cell-based or preclinical approaches) to translate findings to the clinic. This post is to support the objectives of the recently awarded NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre (£26M) Respiratory and Infection theme (led by Professor Chris Brightling). 

You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team of scientists and clinicians in the Department of Respiratory Sciences and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, which has a national and international reputation in translational respiratory research.   

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to, and develop where appropriate, teaching (microbiology and immunology) and research programmes to support these areas within the College of Life Sciences, and associated research groups such as those led by the Department (Fibrosis, Sarcopenia, Population Health), the Leicester Institute for Precision Health, and the Leicester Microbial Sciences and Infectious Diseases Centre.

About you
The role includes an expectation of leadership, development and delivery of research and teaching in their respective areas as well as contributions to the management of the School, College and University. Candidates are expected to show expertise in Respiratory Immunology. 
 
The successful candidate will have an interest in the broad areas of respiratory immunology including, but not limited to, the study of immune cells (antigen presenting cells, Innate Lymphoid cells, T Lymphocytes) and their interaction with lung structural cells.
 
 
 
Additional information

Informal enquiries are welcome and can be made to the Head of the Department of Respiratory Sciences, Professor David Cousins on [email protected]

Interview date will be confirmed in due course.
