Medicine is a thriving and ambitious multidisciplinary faculty - a national leader in medical education, with an outstanding reputation for our combined expertise in research and teaching.

In 2011/12 we celebrated 40 years of medicine at the University.  During this time we have trained thousands of doctors and scientists, and have led cutting edge research in areas as diverse as cancer, osteoporosis, asthma and nutrition.

We lead innovative learning and discovery across the lifecourse from before birth to the elderly, by investing in multi-disciplinary research teams, creative educational programmes and initiating external partnerships and collaborations.

Postdoctoral opportunities

Medicine is a vibrant and supportive environment offering a variety of opportunities to postdoctoral staff and early career researchers.



The aim of The Faculty of Medicine is to provide all research staff with access to a mentor, who will act as an independent source of career advice and support. This is an expansion of the successful postdoctoral mentoring scheme.

“We are committed to the highest quality provision in pursuit of excellence in biomedical sciences and clinical research. We have a reputation for academic excellence in all aspects of education and research.”
