The Faculty of Science and Technology is located in the heart of London, and provides a supportive and enriching environment. Research in the Faculty of Science and Technology encompasses a wide range of disciplines, drawn from the life sciences, electronics and computer science, and psychological sciences. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, the majority our research outputs were classed as Internationally Excellent (3*) or World Leading (4*).

The Translational Physiology Research Group undertakes translational research from cellular to human models, primarily examining the effects of environmental stimuli (including physical activity, age, diet and environment). Our work maximises the understanding of human physiology, the underlying physiological mechanisms, and ultimately the laws of life.

The Quintin Hogg Trust Strategic Research Fund has provided funding for a fixed term research associate to support research into hypoxic treatment of type II diabetes. The main duties and responsibilities of the role involve recruitment and day-to-day running of a research study examining the use of hypoxia for the reduction of circulating blood glucose in type II diabetic patients, as well as communication of results to the wider community.

Skills, qualifications and attributes needed to perform the role involve the ability to work independently in human physiology research, including recruitment, data collection and monitoring. Experience with either human metabolism or hypoxia research would aid applicants. Phlebotomy experience is desired, but training will be provided to the appropriate candidate.
