Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience


The Department seeks to treat its staff in a way which supports the University’s mission to “contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence”, through its core values of freedom of academic thought and expression and freedom from discrimination.

As part of this, the Department seeks to:

1. Attract and retain the best people by providing a world class environment.

2. Recruit people using rigorous, fair and professional selection methods.

3. Provide induction and career support to give people the best possible start.

4. Develop people’s personal and professional skills and knowledge in the Cambridge environment and throughout their careers, providing ongoing support to help them achieve their full potential.

5. Recognise people’s achievements and support their access to structured routes to progress their career.

6. Support people’s fair remuneration within the University’s remuneration frameworks, which seek to remain competitive and allow for changing external pressures.

7. Embed a supportive culture which is inclusive, positive and fair; where opportunities are open to all, people can lead and are led effectively, and change is well managed.

8. Provide an environment where health and wellbeing are actively promoted, where people feel engaged with the wider University and valued for their contribution
