The LMCB is an Equal Opportunities employer (see UCL’s Equal Opportunity Policy) and is committed to ensuring all individuals have equal opportunities for employment and promotion. We support formal and informal arrangements for flexible working at all levels (See UCL’s Work Life Balance policy) and provide career training for students and early career researchers. 

In 2016, the LMCB was awarded Athena Swan GOLD status, the first UCL Department to be recognised as working at this level of excellence and held by only a few other University Departments.  This essentially demonstrates a cultural shift in attitudes and working practices so that good practice is the norm (#simplygoodpractice).  We expect to be making improvements over many years to come (Athena Work). As part of our Athena SWAN practice, we welcome applications from ethnic minorities, which are currently under-represented within the LMCB.

We provide a guide to academic career opportunities for Students and Postdocs. Read more about the LMCB’s vibrant postdoctoral community here
