The world-leading Breast Pathology Research Group (BPRG) is inviting applications for the post of Research Associate/Fellow.

Led by Professor Emad Rakha, we are an expanding and dynamic research team working with significant grants and partners to pioneer the digitisation of pathology using artificial intelligence to develop diagnostic and prognostic tools. Last year we secured several multimillion-pound grants, and our enviable publications record saw over 45 articles published in peer reviewed journals in 2019.

Based at Nottingham City Hospital, we are part of the University of Nottingham's Biodiscovery Institute which brings together researchers from different disciplines to shape the future of health and biotechnology.

You will be a highly motivated and personable individual, who works well as a member of a multi-disciplinary team, as well as using your own initiative. You will be responsible for your own research activity and leading a workstream, as well as contributing to the activity of the group. You will have specific responsibility for leading and coordinating the publications and outputs of the group, and you will play an intrinsic part of the grant-writing team as we bid to secure future projects and funding. Working with the team will further your career development and support promising researchers and scientists working under the mentorship of leading pathologists and senior researchers.

At the University of Nottingham, we are committed to providing competitive employment packages whilst supporting the well-being of our staff to help them reach their full potential. As a University employee, you will have access to a range of benefits and rewards, including leading fitness and health facilities, staff discounts and travel schemes, along with a generous holiday allowance and a highly attractive pension scheme.

You will hold a PhD, or equivalent, in a relevant subject area, or be near to completion of your PhD.

This is a fixed-term post available until 5 July 2021. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours per week), however job share arrangements may be considered.
