Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Research Fellow (5 Posts)

Research Departments of the University of Oxford

Grade 7: £32,817 – £40,322 p.a.

Novo Nordisk is funding a prestigious fellowship programme at the University of Oxford for both basic science and clinical researchers, focused on diabetes, cardiometabolism, liver and renal disease. We are looking to recruit five outstanding postdoctoral researchers who can utilise the support offered by this programme to become future leaders in the field, developing scientific excellence and ultimately improving patients’ lives.

In Oxford, world-class research is conducted across the spectrum of population, clinical and basic science. Depending on the project selected, you will be based in: 1) Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, 2) The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, 3) Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, 4) Nuffield Department of Medicine, 5) Department of Pharmacology or, 6) Nuffield Department of Population Health. There is also the opportunity to spend time in the laboratories of Novo Nordisk (both in Oxford and Denmark). This distribution of time will depend on the specific project.

You will be responsible for conducting the research project selected, including the production of novel scientific data and presentation at national and international meetings.

You should have a PhD (completed or close to completion) in a biomedical subject, or other relevant subject, together with skills and experience relevant to biomedical research. You should be no more than four years post PhD at the start of the fellowship (Autumn 2021) and have a strong CV, having published in high impact journals and presented at international meetings. As well as an enthusiastic interest in the research topic, you will have evidence of excellent interpersonal skills and leadership, with the ability to communicate research ideas and results in a clear and logical way.

This is a full time post offered for a fixed-term of three years.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and names of referees as part of your online application.
