MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology: Group Leaders
We are seeking new Group Leaders with research interests in Molecular Cell Biology.
The MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (LMCB) is located in modern research facilities on the main University College London (UCL) campus in central London. It currently houses the MRC Cell Biology Unit, as well as UCL groups funded by Cancer Research UK, The Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust. Work in the LMCB is focused on understanding fundamental problems of cell biology and their relation to human disease. The new Group Leaders will be selected primarily on scientific excellence and their potential to enhance or complement current LMCB research interests, particularly in the area of cell imaging. The LMCB has an interactive research environment, excellent facilities with particular expertise in imaging, an innovative four-year Graduate Programme, and close links to the UCL scientific community.
The posts will be ideal for senior postdoctoral scientists wishing to establish independent research careers, but established Group Leaders will also be considered. Successful applicants will be expected to win competitive personal fellowships from national or international funding agencies. Further information on the Institute can be found at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/LMCB/. Informal enquiries can be directed to Professor Mark Marsh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applicants should send a covering letter, full Curriculum Vitae, an outline of current research interests (1-2 pages), a proposal for future research (1-2 pages), and the names and addresses of three referees to:
Professor Mark Marsh, MRC LMCB
UCL, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
