Job Location: 


Closing date: 

Sunday, August 1, 2021 - 23:45

The role

Bristol Veterinary School is seeking to recruit a dynamic and outstanding research-active faculty member in the area of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) with the capacity to link with and enhance one or both School’s strategic research themes of Population Health and Global Food Security.

Antimicrobial resistance research at the University of Bristol spans an integrated, multi-disciplinary community of over 100 researchers working across all research faculties and winning significant research income from UKRI as well as numerous other funders; Bristol is the UK leader in terms of value of UKRI-funded AMR awards.

Areas of research may include microbiology, microbial ecology, microbial genetics, ecosystem health, veterinary public health or small animal antimicrobial use/AMR. Opportunities will be available to grow national links through the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL), DEFRA and industry bodies as well as international links, accessing a range of funding strategies. The AMR research landscape in Bristol is exceptional in its breadth and multi-disciplinarity; it presents great opportunities for researchers to further build capabilities in this area.

The post is advertised from Lecturer to Professor level, and is based at Bristol Veterinary School on the University of Bristol’s Langford campus, within the Faculty of Health Sciences.

What will you be doing?

This post will work collaboratively with the applied experience of Bristol Veterinary School’s sector-leading research group, the AMR Force. The post is expected to capitalise on current and expected funding in the area of AMR, working jointly not only with researchers in the AMR Force but also with colleagues across the University and externally. Depth and breadth of knowledge in an academic discipline which support the development of new knowledge and understanding in the field of AMR research are essential.

You should apply if

The successful applicant will have a strong track record of publication and grant funding success on a clear upward trajectory. The appointee will be expected to develop and consolidate a research group in this area, forging collaborations internally and externally, and will teach on the School’s undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses as well as supervise postgraduate research students.


It is expected that the final selection process will be held on either 1st, 27th or 29th September 2021 (please hold these dates free in your diary if applying).

The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Sunday 1st August 2021.
