The world renowned Liggins Institute is calling for expressions of interest from outstanding early-mid career researchers who may wish to undertake a four year Fellowship within the Institute.

A substantive academic position at Senior Research Fellow / Associate Professor level also is available for those who bring more experience and have already established an appropriate track record.

The Liggins Institute is part of the University of Auckland based in the heart of Auckland City, New Zealand. Research at the Liggins Institute has demonstrated that events that occur in pregnancy and in the period after birth can have a profound impact on the baby’s physical and mental development.

Our multidisciplinary research focuses on identifying risks and developing strategies that will reduce or prevent risk and that can be translated into clinical practice.
Interested candidates should have a relevant higher research degree (eg PhD in medicine, nursing, midwifery, psychology, education, clinical nutrition, health economics, implementation science, medical imaging) and at least two years’ postdoctoral research experience. Additional clinical practice experience should be highlighted, but is not essential.
