Building research and shaping the landscape
Together with motivated and engaged colleagues, this role offers the opportunity to build a significant research effort within a flexible and well-supported organisation that sits outside the normal School structure. Cardiff University has ambitious plans for future investments in cancer research, and this role offers the opportunity to be at the centre of helping shape and focus these new developments.
As Director, you will enjoy significant autonomy in the leadership of the Institute, and a core senior role within the School of Biosciences. This responsibility and seniority is reflected in the generous rewards package on offer.
The role of Director offers considerable collaboration opportunities, both within the University and further afield, enabling you to play a significant role within Cardiff’s thriving cancer community.
You will have access to the cutting-edge facilities and specialist equipment that enable the Institute to remain at the forefront of cancer stem cell research.
Vibrant city location
The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute is situated close to the vibrant centre of Wales’ capital city and just a short walk away from beautiful parkland. A thriving and attractive city, Cardiff combines the advantages of a compact, friendly and inexpensive location with all the cultural and recreational facilities of a modern capital city.
Supportive and inclusive
As an Institute, we pride ourselves on delivering a supportive and inclusive working environment, and you will benefit from working within an organisation that has a strong and demonstrable commitment to promoting equality and diversity at all levels.
Please note that the deadline for all applications to be received is the 9th September 2017 and that interviews will be held around the week commencing 9th October 2017 – subject to panel availability.
