Available Positions

The IDRM needs to grow and expand and to build critical mass with world-leading expertise in developmental biology and regenerative medicine. To this end, we are actively recruiting group leaders and senior investigators across each of our major themes (cardiovascular science, neuroscience and immunology). We particularly welcome speculative applications from individuals who have existing fellowship funding or imminent plans to apply for a fellowship (for eg. BHF, Wellcome, UKRI) and wish to join us in Oxford.  

Please contact the IDRM Director: Professor Paul Riley (paul.riley(at) in the first instance with a cover letter describing how your research interests align with, and complement those, of the IDRM and please also provide an up-to-date CV.

Job Title Closing Date
IDRM Communications & Events Officer

The Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM) is a unique flagship institution, at the University of Oxford, and represents a dynamic and collaborative research environment, with 15-20 research groups and 240 research staff investigating how understanding normal development can inform on strategies to regenerate diseased or injured tissues. Our interests span across three research themes: cardiovascular science, neuroscience and immunology, capturing three of the major organ systems targeted by non-communicable diseases.  

The IDRM is recruiting for an experienced Communications & Events Officer who will be responsible for developing and delivering the Institute’s events, communications and public engagement activities. Reporting directly to the Institute Manager and Institute Director, this role is ideal for a highly motivated and creative individual who is passionate about promoting scientific research and can build productive relationships and collaborations.
