About the role

UCL Genetics Institute: Computational approaches to biology or medicine; computational tool development and applying them to genomic data; high-throughput bioinformatics, statistical genetics; metagenomics.


UCL East People and Nature Lab: Cross-disciplinary solutions hub bringing together expertise from ecology, computer science, public health, built environment and social science to gather evidence on how we can best manage our natural resources for a sustainable and resilient future.


GEE invites Expressions of Interest from Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who wish to be sponsored to apply for external fellowships to establish an independent research group. GEE offers a world-class, interactive and supportive research environment within the Division of Biosciences at UCL.


We are strongly committed to recruiting and supporting the most promising ECRs who choose to secure a Group Leader Fellowship as their route to becoming a Principal Investigator. This policy applies to senior fellowships such as Wellcome Trust Henry Dale, MRC CDA, BBSRC David Phillips, NERC IRF, Royal Society URF, CRUK, ERC Starting Grants and equivalent fellowships.


The deadline for this round is 29 April 2024.


Salary is provided by the external award that is secured in future applications to the relevant fellowship schemes.

What we offer

We provide support to ensure that fellows can successfully establish their own research group, have opportunities to gain teaching skills and play a full role in the running of the department. Our commitment starts with academic and administrative support at the application and interview stages and continues throughout the tenure of the fellowship, with regular career development and mentoring programmes. We expect fellows to develop into strong candidates for Principal Investigator positions in the department or elsewhere. In line with this ethos, a large proportion of our past departmental fellows have progressed to permanent positions in GEE.
