Work at LISCB

The Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology (LISCB) is a cross-disciplinary entity that brings together internationally renowned research in structural biology and chemical biology at the University of Leicester into a single world-leading unit. The Institute aims to exploit synergies in research technologies to deliver major advances in both fundamental and translational research and has the following major research strands:

  • understanding the structure and mechanism of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes in biology
  • structure-based drug discovery and design
  • the use of single molecule techniques to understand biological processes
  • the development of chemical probes and compound libraries

Lecturer in Structural Biology. Deadline 28 May

We wish to appoint an excellent and enthusiastic researcher and teacher. The Institute is particularly interested in candidates who will bring expertise in single-particle cryo-electron microscopy, but with an interest in using other structural biology techniques, including X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. The ideal candidate work on an important biological problem to solve using structural biology, which is complementary and synergistic with existing research interests in the institute.

You will have an established record of research achievement, as demonstrated by publications in leading journals and will take an active role in further enhancing the Institute’s research profile.  To apply


We are always looking to explore options of gaining fantastic new colleagues. Please get in touch with Tennie at or individual academics to discuss.
