Our research focuses on some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today, with 98% of our research rated as being of international quality in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. We encourage proactive engagement with industry, business and community partners to enhance the impact of research and education and improve the employability of our students.
Biosciences at the University of Exeter is continuing its expansion as a world-class centre for research, teaching and training that provides a stimulating and inspirational environment that brings out the very best in our staff and students (biosciences.exeter.ac.uk). We are a strong and strategically smart academic community, combining ground-breaking studies and the pursuit of knowledge with high-quality teaching, reinforced by state-of-the-art facilities, and excellent academic support. We are located on the University’s campuses in Exeter, Devon and near Falmouth, Cornwall; two of the most beautiful areas of the UK. This current position will be recruited into our Exeter Faculty, which is located on our Streatham campus.
Our 70+ Faculty cover all aspects of biological and chemical sciences, and are situated over four closely and, in most cases, physically-linked buildings; the Geoffrey Pope Building, the Hatherly Building, the Living Systems Institute and the BioEconomy Centre. We provide an inspirational, demanding and rewarding learning experience, teaching undergraduates in a broad, yet deep, Biological Sciences degree programme, in addition to our more focused Biochemistry and Biological and Medicinal Chemistry degree programmes (exeter.ac.uk/undergraduate/degrees/biosciences). We also contribute to programmes jointly run with other Departments and Colleges, such as the Medical Sciences, Human Biosciences and Natural Sciences degree programmes. We have a vibrant postgraduate research community comprised of over 150 research students who, together with ~100 early career researchers, and our professional and technical service colleagues, makes our community a diverse and considerate environment in which individuals can realise their full potential.
