Job Description

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in animal science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

We are seeking an enthusiastic, capable and adaptable scientist with excellent communication skills, who is keen to establish themselves in animal science research. Whilst it is not essential that you should have prior experience of working with pigs, you should have a strong interest in developing pig research. You will work closely with academics and industry to co-develop proposals, conduct commercial and non-commercial research at the National Pig Centre and carry out knowledge exchange.  

You should have a PhD (or be close to completion) in animal science or a related area, complemented by excellent analytical and laboratory skills and a proven track record in communicating your research outcomes. You will be based in the School of Biology at the University of Leeds and at the National Pig Centre
