Job description

Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Cancer Research (non-clinical) at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).

We are looking to recruit a scientist with a strong background in the field of cancer research, with a specific focus on haemato-oncology or cancer immunology.

The post is part of the continued investment in clinical and basic cancer research at BSMS and Brighton and Sussex University Hospital Trust (BSUHT).

The successful candidate will be based in the Medical Research Building at BSMS, University of Sussex Campus and will be expected to contribute to both the teaching and research agendas of the School.

We are seeking a candidate with a strong research track record in cancer research, preferably with research interests that dovetail with those of the current principal investigators: Prof. Chris Pepper, Dr. Andrea Pepper and Dr. Tim Chevassut.

As well as integrating into the current haemato-oncology team, the Lecturer will contribute to teaching in the top-ranked BSMS undergraduate medical degree course.

The appointee will be expected to possess, or be willing to work towards obtaining, a recognised teaching qualification. However, extensive previous lecturing experience is not essential as support will be provided to ensure that the appointee is able to deliver teaching to the exacting standards required.

For informal enquiries about this post please contact Professor Chris Pepper, Chair in Cancer Research (c.pepper@bsms.ac.uk), or Dr Andrea Pepper (a.pepper@bsms.ac.uk) at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.
