Work with us

Following recent major strategic investment, the University of Exeter is substantially expanding its neuroscience research capacity.  We have a number of exciting opportunities for talented and passionate academics to undertake research aimed at understanding the underlying mechanisms of brain disease and translating this to improve patient treatment and care. 

World-leaders in neuroscience, our research is driven by clinically important questions. Our progressive research and outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate education are underpinned by our current expertise in neurogenomics, neurophysiology, neuroendocrinology, and clinical and cognitive neuroscience, as well as cutting-edge innovation in technology.  

Our expansion offers permanent academic opportunities across all levels as part of the Medical School within our new Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. This is an exciting time to join the University of Exeter, and you will be an integral part of the development and shaping of the future of neuroscience research and education at Exeter.  We welcome applicants from all areas of neuroscience and are particularly keen to hear from individuals and teams working in stem cell models of brain disease, animal models of brain disease, neuroendocrinology, neuroinflammation, molecular pathology and computational modelling.
