Want to join a dynamic and expanding research group at one of the world's leading veterinary schools?

As part of its strategy to build capacity and develop research activity in areas of established excellence, The Department of Veterinary Basic Sciences at The Royal Veterinary College (scored 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise), is seeking to make two appointments in its Structure and Motion Laboratory (www.rvc.ac.uk/sml).

This laboratory undertakes world class innovative research into the locomotor biomechanics of animals (including humans) and has strong collaborative links with other biology and engineering groups worldwide. Recent BBSRC and SRIF funding has developed outstanding new facilities for evaluating locomotion at The College's Hawkshead site in a rural location 16 miles north of central London with excellent transport links.

Lectureship/Senior Lectureship: We are looking for applicants with a desire to develop an independent programme of research in basic science which is eligible for funding by BBSRC, EPSRC, NERC or equivalent, in a field which is related or complementary to others in the lab. This could include maths/computing, or a physical, medical or biological science applied to biomechanics research. Candidates should be established researchers with proven ability to obtain funding and a strong publication record in high impact peer-reviewed journals. The successful candidate will contribute to undergraduate teaching through a world class innovative teaching programme informed by research.

RCUK Fellowship in mathematical biology: This is a prestigious five year position with appointment to a tenured lectureship at the end, subject to satisfactory performance. Full details of the Fellowship scheme are available at www.rcuk.ac.uk/acfellow. Applicants should have a PhD, a strong background in Newtonian physics and good publications at the interface between maths/ engineering and biology. An interest in continuing to work at the interface between these disciplines with others in the group in the application of mathematical techniques to biological problems is highly desirable.
