The Department of Biology at York is ranked in the top 10 in the UK and 1st for impact outside academia (2014 REF). Our research has had major influence on environmental policy, industry and health, with internationally recognised strengths across the biological sciences: from ecology to biochemistry, biotechnology and biomedical sciences.
A key factor in our success is our superb research facilities including the innovative Technology Facility, housing more than £8M of state-of-the-art equipment. Within the Department, our values of collegiality, openness and flexibility have gained us a gold Athena SWAN award.
We have a strong track-record of hosting Independent Research Fellows and we greatly value the contribution they make to research in the Department. Our supportive, dynamic and flourishing environment is an ideal location for Fellows, who we view as the potential academic leaders for the future.
|If you are thinking of applying for an Independent Research Fellowship, in particular in an area of strategic fit with current research in York Biology, we encourage you to contact individual staff members whose research area most closely matches yours. Alternatively contact Professor Jennifer Potts, (Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair of the Research Committee, for further information.|
