Engineering Biology in Cambridge


Applications are invited for an Associate Professor post in Synthetic Biology/Engineering Biology, available from April 2024.

Key responsibilities include teaching undergraduates, conducting world-leading research, advising postgraduate students and post-doctoral workers, and other duties associated with academic life. There is the opportunity to become a Fellow of a College.

We welcome excellent candidates who are taking a design-based bioengineering approach within plant biology. We seek candidates who will complement existing strengths in synthetic biology and bioengineering for improved photosynthesis and reduced agricultural inputs. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates who will contribute to teaching and research in plant development. This recruitment is part of a co-ordinated approach with the Department of Biochemistry to grow bioengineering in the School of Biological Sciences and benefits from strong links with the Departments of Engineering and Applied Mathematics.
