University of Oxford, Senior Group Leader, Translational Immunology

The University of Oxford are looking to appoint group leaders to join the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences Oxford Institute (COI). Based in Old Road Campus, Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, the COI is a collaboration between the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the University of Oxford and builds upon the CAMS Oxford International Centre of Translational Immunology, established in 2013.

Reporting to the COI Directors and to the Head of the Nuffield Department of Medicine, you will be the head of a significant research group within the COI, fostering significant scientific links with the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. All areas of research related to translational immunology will be considered. You will play a leading role in the management of your group and have responsibility for the development of its strategic direction. You will be an internationally recognised authority in your field and will have primary responsibility for obtaining independent external funding for the group’s research projects. You will run a programme rooted in basic science with the aim of translating this research to the clinic. You will work in Oxford but will have opportunities to visit CAMS institutes in China and to establish scientific collaborations.

You will initiate and implement long-term, often interdisciplinary research programmes within your research area and develop novel areas of research for publication in high impact journals. You will also generate research income and actively promote the research area, write funding applications for new projects, and play a key role in establishing overall research strategy.  In addition, you will manage and monitor substantial research resources and budgets as well as provide effective people management by motivating, supervising and communicating with all members of the team and provide academic supervision for research students, academic visitors in Oxford and from CAMS.

You must hold a relevant PhD/DPhil as well as significant post qualification research experience.  You will also provide a research proposal that is complimentary to the CAMS Oxford Institute’s research themes and aims and have experience in leading successful and novel research programmes. Evidence of an established international publication record is also required and management of research projects, staff and PhD students and an international reputation and specialist knowledge in transnational immunology are also essential.

This full-time position is fixed term for 5 years in the first instance and is funded by CAMS-COI.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 1st December.
