Most notably we have achieved a gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework and been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research. Now we’re looking for more passionate, ambitious people to join us.

If you are in the early stages of an academic career and are considering joining NTU, then our Early Career Academic Development Programme could be just right for you.

We seek a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Microbiology (Teaching and Research). You will support microbiology teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels across our range of bioscience courses. You will have an enthusiastic approach to education and will help further develop the digital literacy, problem solving and data analytical skills of our students as we increase our blended learning offering, combining high quality face-to-face and online activities. The success of our courses is linked to our continual development and improvement of innovative and effective learning experiences to support student progression, attainment and employability. Following on from the success of accreditation of our BSc and MBiol Bioscience courses by the Royal Society of Biology, the Microbiology team require additional expertise to support research-orientated teaching. We are particularly keen to hear from microbiologists with the ability to support students in the use of the R statistical programming language and Galaxy/CLIMB for the analysis of biological data such as microbial genomic datasets.

You will have a PhD in Microbiology or a relevant discipline and expertise in one or more of the following areas: clinical microbiology, microbial genomics, molecular microbiology, bacterial gene and protein characterisation, food microbiology, epidemiology of bacterial diseases. You will also have an emerging record in research that complements our existing strengths in the Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota research group https://www.arom-ntu.net/about_arom.html, including microbial pathogenesis, antimicrobials, population genomics, epidemiology, diversity of the human gut microbiota, host-microbiome and predator-prey interactions, evolution of virulence and plasmid biology. You will work within our rapidly evolving Clifton Campus, a multi-award-winning site including state-of-the-art bioscience research and teaching labs. New Engineering and Interdisciplinary Science and Technology buildings recently opened on campus, and a Medical Technology Innovation Facility is due for completion in 2020.

We’re proud of how far we’ve come. With a shared vision, we are a community of more than 4,000 colleagues, all committed to our goal of becoming the University of the Future. Do you have the passion to help us to go even further? www.ntu.ac.uk
