Cross the boundaries to new horizons

Be part of a world class, multi-disciplinary team in our Living Systems Institute

The Living Systems Institute (LSI) is home to an integrated team of scientists from across the world and across the science disciplines, creating a dynamic hub to inspire new approaches to the understanding of living systems and the diseases that afflict them.

Phase one of the LSI recruitment campaign took place in 2016 and resulted in the appointment of 15 outstanding researchers across all relevant disciplines from Research Fellow to full Professor.  Five vacancies remain and will be advertised in late 2017.  If you are interested in finding out more about these opportunities, please contact to register your interest. We will then let you know when our new vacancies go live.

As Chair of the Living Systems Executive Board I am pleased to continue to support and champion the work being carried out at the University in relation to the Athena SWAN Charter. At Exeter we wish to put in place a culture and environment which supports women to reach their full potential. I am very concerned about ensuring there are equal opportunities for women to advance their scientific careers.
