Our Team

The Centre, housed at Senate House, Bloomsbury, London will officially open in September 2021. Between now and then, we will be recruiting the first generation of early career scientists and scholars.

The Centre will house a core research team of early career researchers who will be incentivised to cross disciplinary boundaries, grow in independence, and attract additional funding. At the same time, the Centre will host visiting internationally-leading scientists and scholars to complement our existing projects or bring new ones. The Centre’s Steering Committee will have a marked intellectual presence that will facilitate its disciplinary expansion and international visibility.

 

Over the next few months we will recruit between 3 and 5 post-doctoral research fellows who will form the first generation of scientists and scholars for the Centre. This team will be assisted by a Lab Manager. An Advisory Board of world-leading scientists and scholars will be actively engaged with the development of the Centre's vision.

The Centre will be directed by Manos Tsakiris.

 

Over the next few weeks we will be posting details here about the recruitment process and selection criteria for the first generation of fellows who will join us
