University of Surrey

Chronobiology Lectureship (Assistant Professor) – University of Surrey, UK

This new lectureship constitutes an important addition to the Section of Chronobiology, in the Department of Biochemical Sciences, one of four departments in the School that is home to 85 academic staff in total. In the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), the School was ranked eighth out of 94 institutions in the Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing, and Pharmacy category.  Chronobiology is a discipline which complements most aspects of research within the School. Our current research covers all aspects of biological timing (ultradian, circadian and seasonal rhythms) in a range of models, particularly clinical studies in humans and (transgenic) rodent models. How these rhythms link to physiology (e.g. metabolic pathways, immune cell trafficking, cardiac rhythms), behaviour and health (e.g. rest/activity, dietary patterns, metabolic disease) are current focusses. Our research is underpinned by excellent modern clinical and basic research facilities.   We are now seeking new talent to complement our existing strengths and bring their own expertise and excellence to help deliver future research success. This lectureship is designed to enable a high potential early career academic to take the next step in their independent research career, supported with a start-up fund to resource a PhD studentship.

Informal inquiries can be made to Professor Debra J. Skene, Section Lead Chronobiology, by email (  For details on the benefits of working with us, and to apply on-line please visit our website.
