University of Liverpool - Faculty of Health and Life Sciences - Director of the Centre for Alcohol Research

United Kingdom, Liverpool
Education - Other Administrative Positions

The University of Liverpool is entering an exciting new era as we strive to maintain and enhance our dynamic reputation and performance in a rapidly evolving higher education environment. In order to help us achieve our ambitions, we are seeking to appoint a Director to head up a new and exciting region-wide initiative, the Centre for Alcohol Research.

Alcohol misuse has significant impact on the healthcare system, society and economy, but there is a dearth of research in this area. We are seeking a Director for this Centre, who can form, refine and deliver the vision of a world-renowned Centre for Alcohol Research.

The post holder will be awarded a Chair in the University of Liverpool, and it is anticipated that the successful candidate will develop an internationally leading programme in alcohol research for patient benefit. The Director will develop the Centre through recruiting new individuals to the Centre and identifying current alcohol-related research in the University, whilst enabling current research to become part of the Centre.

Although the Director will be employed by the University of Liverpool, the forming of collaborative relationships with researchers in Liverpool John Moores and the NHS Trusts, will be an expectation.

Building on Liverpool’s significant achievements as a research powerhouse, you will be an exceptional professional joining our community of 5,500 talented staff, including 1,300 researchers, and 23,000 campus-based and online students.

The University community wishes to build on the progress made over the last 10 years and is keen to seize the opportunity and challenge of taking this great institution into the world’s top 100.

The successful applicant will join an innovative University that is passionate about inspiring people to learn and achieve, that celebrates individuality and ingenuity, energy and enterprise, and is committed to enhancing both the student experience and our research excellence.

The successful candidate will have extensive experience and track record in undertaking research relating to alcohol misuse as demonstrated by publication of high impact papers and through successful award of externally competitively research grants. Experience of teaching undergraduate medical students and post graduate practitioners from scientific and the allied health professions would be advantageous. Applicants will be medically qualified and hold a Membership or Fellowship of a relevant Royal Medical College, to be fully registered with the General Medical Council with licence to practise and listed on an appropriate Specialist Register.
