The Norbrook Chair in Pharmaceutical Science
The University has recently established a Department of Pharmacy and
Pharmaceutical Sciences and is committed to its development as an area of
excellence. Significant progress has already been achieved in this regard.
The Department of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is part of the
School of Biomedical Sciences and will make a significant contribution to
the Biomedical Sciences Research Institute. Biomedical Sciences research at
Ulster has a national and international reputation achieving top scores in the
last three UK-wide Research Assessment Exercises.
Following the receipt of a generous gift from Norbrook Laboratories Ltd
the University wishes to appoint an outstanding individual to the founding
Norbrook Chair in Pharmaceutical Science. The appointee to this prestigious
position will provide research leadership, establish internationally
competitive agenda-setting research at Ulster and extend the University’s
focused research portfolio in pharmaceutical formulation, novel drug
delivery, and pharmaceutical science.
The successful applicant will have an outstanding academic or industrial
track record, with a strong focus on fundamental and translational research
in the area of drug formulation and pharmaceutical science.
The appointee will be offered a permanent professorship within the
Department of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and will hold the title
of the Norbrook Chair in Pharmaceutical Science for an initial period of five
years. The Norbrook Chair includes a significant research support package
which will be negotiated with the appointee.
An attractive reward package, including a competitive starting salary, access
to a pension scheme and financial assistance with relocation expenses is

Tenure-track Faculty Position
The NYU Langone Medical Center is currently seeking scientists studying
the role of human commensals (that comprise the microbiome) in host
physiology. Investigators from diverse backgrounds (including but not
limited to immunology, microbiology, physiology, biochemistry, pathology,
genetics, genomics, chemistry, bioinformatics) are invited to apply for tenure-track positions that are a partnership between our innovative initiative for
Inflammation, Infection, and Immunity (I3) and our Departments of Medicine,
Microbiology, and Pathology.
The I3 initiative aims to marry NYU Langone Medical Center’s traditional
strengths in infectious diseases and global health with its research on microbial
pathogenesis, mechanisms and genetics of host-pathogen interactions, and
adaptive and innate immunity. Our technological advantages in computational
biology, model organisms, and assay development as applied to microbiota
also enrich this exciting research environment.
Study of the human microbiota is one of the pillars of the I3 initiative, making
us particularly interested in candidates focusing on analyzing the human
microbiome in health and disease and the development of relevant animal
models. Successful candidates will have the ability to strategically align available institutional and external resources to achieve their research goals.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a description of research
accomplishments, plans for future research, and reprints of three representative publications. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of
recommendation submitted on their behalf. Application materials should be
e-mailed as PDF files to: HMP Search Committee, c/o Sandra Fiorelli
( Sandra.Fiorelli@nyumc.org), N YU Langone Medical Center, 550 First
Avenue, OBV-A606, New York, NY 10016. The deadline for receipt of
applications is 31 May 2011.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply; NYU is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Calls for Proposals 2011
The European Science Foundation (ESF)
announces the following Calls for Proposals:
Each year, ESF supports approximately 50 Exploratory Workshops
across all scientific domains. These small, interactive output oriented
meetings are aimed at opening up new directions in research to
explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new
developments in science.
3Further information: www.esf.org/workshops
Submission deadline: 26 May 2011
Research Conferences provide the opportunity for leading scientists
and young researchers to meet for discussions on the most recent
developments in their fields of research. Conferences are open to
scientists world-wide, whether from academia or industry.

Submission deadline: 15 September 2011
The European Science Foundation was established in 1974 to provide
a common platform for its Member Organisations to advance European
research collaboration and explore new directions for research. It is an
independent organisation, owned by 78 Member Organisations which are
research funding organisations and research performing organisations,
academies and learned societies from 30 countries. ESF promotes
collaboration in research itself, in funding of research and in science policy
activities at the European level.
