Current opportunities

Our funding and unique position provides an unrivalled environment in which to undertake research. We have excellent facilities, particularly in the platform technologies that underpin modern scientific research. As a result, TSL has an outstanding record of publications in high profile journals. We therefore attract high calibre students, post-docs and senior researchers.

Below is a full list of our current vacancies. If none show, please check this page again soon and follow us on Twitter because opportunities arise throughout the year.

The Sainsbury Laboratory is always looking to recruit world–class researchers, technical and support staff at all stages of their careers. If you are interested in working within one of our research groups or support teams we encourage you to contact the relevant group leader directly to discuss possibilities.

We are particularly keen to hear from prospective postdoctoral researchers. Please email the relevant group leader directly with:

  • your CV,
  • a brief but strong cover letter that includes:
  • your career narrative to date,
  • your intended research focus,
  • why you want to pursue this at TSL,
  • and how this fits with your career plans.

Additional opportunities for early career researchers include our one-year taught MSc in Global Plant Health, PhD Research Studentships or Predoctoral Research Internships for those still needing to develop the necessary skills and experience required to undertake a PhD.
