The Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) is a dynamic, world-renowned interdisciplinary research centre with a focus on engineering biology for a healthy and sustainable future. Embracing both fundamental and applied studies, our broad research themes include Chemicals and Materials, Food, Energy and Environment and Medicine and Health. In 2019, the MIB was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for outstanding contribution made to the UK by an academic institution, in recognition for the environmental benefits of its pioneering expertise in industrial biotechnology.
The MIB is seeking outstanding researchers at all levels but especially early career researchers to join their vibrant research community, pushing the boundaries of biotechnology research and the interfaces with discovery bioscience and translational medicine. The MIB is looking for individuals who either hold, or intend to apply for, independent research fellowships such as UKRI Future Leader Fellowship, EPSRC Open Fellowship, Royal Society University Research Fellowship, Wellcome Trust Career Development Awards or ERC Fellowships. Fellows will become embedded in the vibrant research community in the MIB, have access to the extensive facilities in the MIB and access to a flexible set of university training courses and will be provided with expert mentors as well as peer-support from other Fellows. This will optimise the Fellows interdisciplinary skills, in order to enhance their academic career and progress.
