John Innes Centre looking for researcher to develop long-term programs in plant and microbial science

The John Innes Centre is looking for creative early-career or established researchers who wish to develop exciting long-term independent programs in plant and microbial science and be part of the highly collaborative culture of the John Innes Centre.

As an international centre of excellence, the Centre encourages applications from researchers from all branches of life sciences. We particularly welcome those in the areas of plant interactions with bacteria, fungi, insects, nematodes and symbionts, chemistry and biology of plant and microbial natural products, and organellar signalling and cell biology.

The John Innes Centre says it offers access to a range of centrally-led, state-of-the art technology platforms that support Group Leaders and their labs across all scientific disciplines, including bioimaging, biomolecular analyses, genomics and database services, and field, horticultural and (quarantine) entomology services.

Interested applicants are invited to submit a description of (i) current research activities and (ii) short and longer-term research aims and potential strategic goals (each ~2-3 pages). Apply online, including a CV and names of three academic referees.

Appointments can be made at any level depending on experience and come with significant support (professional development, research and administrative). Start-up research funding is negotiable. Closing date is 6 September 2019.
