About Us

The Microbiology Society is a membership charity for scientists interested in microbes, their effects, and their practical uses. It is one of the largest microbiology societies in Europe with a worldwide membership based in universities, industry, hospitals, research institutes, and schools.

Our members have a unique depth and breadth of knowledge about the discipline. The Society’s role is to help unlock and harness the potential of that knowledge.

Our commitment to anyone who studies microbes is “whoever you are, wherever you are, we will amplify your voice”.

About You

As the Microbiology Society embarks on its new five-year strategy, with increased ambition to ensure that the science of microbiology brings maximum benefit to society, we are seeking three new colleagues with exceptional vision and skills.

The Head of Scientific Programmes, the Head of Engagement and Storytelling, and the Head of Development Opportunities will work with expert microbiologists and professional colleagues to generate innovative and impactful programmes, content, and markets

The Head of Scientific Programmes will be responsible for ensuring that our journals, conferences, professional development work, and associated activities are comprehensibly linked into a lucid and cogent whole.

The Head of Engagement and Storytelling will be responsible for ensuring that content outside of our scientific programmes aimed at public, policy and educational audiences forms an articulate body of material with clear purposes and targeted audiences.

The Head of Development Opportunities will be responsible for ensuring that we are bringing together both our current income-generating activities and any new ventures, both commercial and non-commercial, ensuring that these are targeted at enthusiastic communities and markets.

To fulfil any of these exciting new roles, you will be collaborative, articulate, and have a clear sense of purpose. You will build relationships with our communities of scientific experts, our trustees and other members of our governance structures, our energetic team of colleagues, and our partners and collaborators in other communities.​​

We are genuinely excited about what the future brings for our organisation and would greatly value the chance to talk to you about how these newly created roles will be a vibrant part of that change. In the first instance, please contact the Chief Operations Officer, Jo Manning, (contact details are available on our website) to arrange to speak to the Chief Executive and other senior colleagues about these stimulating opportunities.

  • Flexible working hours
  • Highly competitive salaries with an annual cost of living increase
  • 23 days holiday + eight bank holidays and three additional days over the Christmas break
