The Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at King's College London is pleased to announce openings for a series of academic positions, including Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, and Professorial roles. These group leader positions signify King's College London's continued commitment to advancing the field of human genetics, reflecting the university's pioneering history in genetics research and recognising the importance of human genetics in contemporary medical and public health fields.

These roles offer an exciting opportunity to join the thriving human genetics community at a world-class department renowned for its strength in this field. We are particularly interested in applications from individuals with research interests in the areas of population genetics and epidemiology, and functional genomics.

The Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine is a leader in medical education and research, providing a vibrant and supportive environment for its faculty and students. By joining King’s, you will be part of an institution that values innovation, collaboration, and the advancement of knowledge in genetics and beyond.

The Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics is located in the life sciences cluster in historic and vibrant London Bridge. It hosts advanced research facilities for genetic investigations of both common and rare diseases, alongside studies of fundamental mechanisms of gene regulation. With internationally recognised programs in both computational and experimental genetics, the department serves as a hub for interdisciplinary research, encouraging collaboration across various scientific and clinical disciplines and maintaining strong connections with international research communities.

About the roles:

Successful candidates will lead their own innovative research programs, focusing on the identification and manipulation of genetic mechanisms in human health and disease. Each group leader will be entrusted with leading their research teams and fostering a collaborative and positive research culture. They are expected not only to secure funding and publish impactful scholarly articles but also to lead initiatives with impact beyond academia, influencing public health policy, enhancing health service delivery, and promoting broader societal benefits.

They will be expected to contribute to the vibrant academic community within the department and more broadly across the college. A key aspect of these faculty positions involves education and mentoring, where they will shape the next generation of scientists through their contributions to both undergraduate and postgraduate education.

This is a full-time post (35 Hours per week), and you will be offered an indefinite contract.
