We prioritise wellness at work, encourage flexible working, and are proud of our vibrant and collaborative community. You'll be working with people doing world-changing research in a broad number of fields, centred around our five key themes, all with a passion for their subject.
The new Life and Mind Building, due to be completed in late 2024, will have cutting-edge teaching and research facilities which staff may use, including temperature controlled rooms and glass houses, an imaging suite, full DEFRA facilities, and the Oxford herbaria. Off site, there is also access to flight labs, wet labs, and flow cytometry. Staff can benefit from access to resources through our partners at Wytham Woods, Oxford Botanic Gardens and Arboretum and the Oxford University Natural History Museum.
We strive to ensure all staff have opportunities for personal and professional development. For research staff and students, we have mentorship programmes for early career researchers, a biology research staff network, and many social opportunities to connect, network, and learn from your fellow biologists.
All staff can expect to benefit from University-wide People and Organisational Development programmes, training, and Departmental reward schemes.
