Lecturers within the Faculty of Medicine
Are you a dedicated, enthusiastic, and talented early-stage scientist seeking to establish your own group? The Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London is recruiting up to 20 non-clinical Lectureships to join its world-class academic community.
This recruitment is part of a suite of developments underway within the Faculty to support academic opportunity in key areas of our science. The Faculty is planning towards the opening of extensive new academic and translational facilities at the College’s new White City Campus and adjacent Hammersmith Campus, unlocking new opportunities for colocation and collaboration between scientists from across the College. Taken together, these developments offer an outstanding environment for non-clinical scientists working in the broad area of medical sciences to establish themselves within a world-leading STEM university during an exciting period of development.
The major research interests and the departments will be:
- National Heart and Lung Institute
- Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction
- Institute of Clinical Sciences
- Department of Surgery & Cancer
- Department of Immunology and Inflammation
- Department of Infectious Diseases
- Department of Brain Sciences
- School of Public Health
- Institute of Global Health Innovation
To excel in these roles, you will need to have a record of excellent research in your field with strong communication and team-working skills. Leadership skills are also essential for this role. Productivity and be developing (or have already developed) a national or international reputation in their scientific field is also a must.
These posts will be permanent, subject to a satisfactory 3-year probation review.
The Faculty is committed to supporting diversity in science and to enabling the careers of women, ethnic minorities, and those with family or other commitments. We aim to support and mentor young scientists and have a range of support in place to deliver this. Imperial has an excellent Athena SWAN record and strong outreach and public engagement programmes, which all successful appointees would be expected to participate in. The College champions a supportive and respectful ethos set out within its ‘Imperial Expectations’.
Interested individuals are encouraged to make informal enquiries to the relevant Head of Department as listed in the full job description.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
