The Centre for Bacterial Resistance Biology (CBRB), at Imperial College London, is focused on Bacterial Physiology and Pathogenesis, Antimicrobial Resistance, Microbiota, and Host Immunity.  The Centre hosts a diverse community of young and enthusiastic academics and practitioners some of whom joined the Centre as Research Fellows. 

The CBRB welcomes talented post-doctoral researchers who are ready to make the transition to independent investigators.  Individuals wishing to apply for external fellowship funding (for example MRC, Wellcome Trust, BBSRC, Royal Society) hosted by the CBRB will benefit from our established pioneering mentoring system that will allow YOU, the next generation of prominent scientists, to flourish in a unique environment. 

To express interest in a Fellowship application:


Candidates who meet the criteria above are advised to send a CV (2 pages), a summary of their proposed research programme and details of their selected funding scheme(s) to Prof José Penadés (, CBRB Centre Director.  Our mentoring panel will review each application and establish if it fits both the funding scheme and the strategic aims of the Centre. 

We particularly encourage applications from female scientists and scientists from diverse backgrounds who are underrepresented in the academic staff of CBRB, Departments of Infectious Disease and Life Sciences.  

The CBRB and Imperial College are committed to equality of opportunity, eliminating discrimination and creating an inclusive working environment.
