Job Opportunities

Excellence in research, teaching and employability of our students

We welcome new members to our team, bringing new approaches to answering biological questions. The freedom to pursue your research interest, and to make that part of your teaching, is a valuable feature of what we offer to our team and, through them, to our students.  You will also find that Durham’s interdisciplinary approach to research brings fresh perspectives to your own work.

The area itself has many benefits as a place to live and work – from the striking heritage buildings in Durham to the busy city of Newcastle, and from coast to hills, this is a great place to call home.

Our Strategic Vision

We believe that inspiring our people to do outstanding things at Durham enables Durham people to do outstanding things in the world.

As part of Durham University, you’ll be working with exceptional young minds, all with the desire to ask, and answer, the big questions. Access to leading-edge facilities and an active contributor to the global research and university community means you’ll be part of an international and diverse network of partners spanning the world’s best research institutions, organisations and businesses. And all this within the evocative and historic surroundings of the city, county and community that is Durham.

The needs of our staff are very important to us, which can be seen through generous pensions plans, assistance with childcare facilities and also the possibility of flexible working. The support of a Relocation Manager can also be invaluable in helping you and your family settle in.
