Professor/Senior Lecturer in Comparative Genomics
Vacancy Ref: 116829
Salary: Professor, Grade 10 will be within the Professorial range and subject to negotiation
             Senior Lecturer, Grade 9, £56,048 - £63,059 per annum

 We have an exciting opportunity to appoint a Professor/Senior Lecturer in Comparative Genomics to make a substantial and positive contribution to the strategic direction of the School/College through leading and contributing to research of international standard, high quality teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, securing research funding, and providing academic leadership and management within the School/College. 

Applications are invited from candidates of international standing with an appropriate record of academic achievement in comparative genomics and associated omics technologies. We are looking for a candidate who will complement our existing strengths in clinical veterinary medicine, evolutionary biology, and animal physiology, with a demonstrable interest in using domestic mammals among their study systems. We are particularly interested in applications from candidates with a track record of studying health related traits and their underlying genomic basis in companion animals. Traits of specific interest include those related to metabolism, ageing, and disease (e.g. cancer, autoimmune diseases, neuromuscular disorders).

The School of Biodiversity, One Health and Veterinary Medicine is home to researchers studying organismal biology and animal health across a diverse range of systems, approaches and disciplines with existing strengths in infectious disease, physiology, ageing, veterinary epidemiology, and evolution among others. You will be based on the University of Glasgow’s Garscube campus, where the majority of veterinary teaching and research infrastructure is located. This includes the Small Animal Hospital (a recent £15M investment) and our Veterinary Diagnostic Services, offering excellent opportunities for collaborative research at the clinical and translational interface, especially with respect to companion animals. 

We welcome applications from candidates with a Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework level 12 (PhD) in animal biology, genomics and health or related discipline with an extensive and established reputation in research and significant teaching experience within the subject area.

This post is full time and open ended.
