The Quadram Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute at the forefront of a new era in food, microbiome and health research. It brings together clinical and non-clinical scientists in a new state-of-the-art building that opened in April 2019. Based on the Norwich Research Park, home of the John Innes Centre, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, the Earlham Institute and the University of East Anglia, it is one of the largest centres of life sciences in Europe.
We have a Principal Investigator role within the Quadram Institute’s Gut Microbes and Health research programme to deliver scientific excellence and social and economic impact in microbiome research. We welcome applications from individuals undertaking cutting-edge microbiome research with a research focus on eukaryotes and fungi associated to the human host, or changes in the microbiome during ageing.
The position will come with access to early- and late-life longitudinal cohorts and research projects benefiting from these are welcome, such as defining the intercommunication and crosstalk between gut (eukaryotic) microbes and their host, how these are first established in early life and are altered in later life, and in diseases affecting the gut and other organ systems at various ages. We would particularly welcome those with a focus on the mycobiome and its interaction with other constituents of the intestinal microbiome as well as the host, and how these interactions impact on organ systems beyond the gut including the brain or liver, with a firm understanding of systems biology, mathematical modelling of gut function and numerical ecology.
