The Institute of Integrative Biology lies at the heart of a thriving biomedical science campus in Liverpool. Based primarily in the Biosciences Building with additional sites at Leahurst and Ness Gardens, we provide one of the most vibrant and integrated biosciences environments in the UK. The Institute comprises 220 staff (including 75 Principal Investigators) and 150 postgraduate students. With a research income of ~£9.5m annually, our scientists deliver ground-breaking research within four key research themes.
We have established world-class research facilities that support scientists across all four research themes. The facilities include the Centre for Genomic Research, the GeneMill Synthetic Biology Laboratory, the Centre for Proteome Research, the Centre for Computational Biology and Modelling, the Centre for Cell Imaging, NMR Centre for Structural Biology, the Barkla X-laboratory of Biophysics and the Henry Wellcome Laboratory of Mammalian Behaviour and Evolution.
Through our research partnerships with companies such as Unilever and AstraZeneca, strong global links into major research enterprises in Japan, Brazil, USA and China and our scientific outreach, we are having true impact across the world. Our staff deliver on research and provide research-led undergraduate teaching. Our postgraduate students enjoy a first class experience with strong supervision and mentorship in an exciting research environment. Our Athena Swan Silver Award is evidence of our full commitment to providing opportunities for development to all our staff, regardless of background or gender. We hope to welcome you as a member of staff, a student or a partner in our vision for biology with impact, from genes to ecosystems.
Students are offered a comprehensive programme of training and support by Liverpool Doctoral College as well as the Institute, and also project specific training. Applications are invited for studentships funded by BBSRC, NERC, MRC and others. We also welcome self-funded students.
