The Cancer Sciences Unit in Southampton, with over 100 scientists, clinicians and associated staff, has a long and distinguished record in investigating leukemia research. Following a recent award from Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research (LLR), the chronic lymphocytic leukaemia molecular mechanisms research group is looking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow. The position will investigate the biological, clinical and therapeutic significance of autophagy in CLL using immunoblotting, qRT-PCR, FACS and primary cell culture of CLL cells.

The successful applicant will benefit from  strong interactions within a large well established enthusiastic CLL group based at Southampton general hospital and  made up of  more than 14 research clinicians and scientists. This work will expand our understanding of CLL biology which hopefully will aid in the development of novel therapies and improve clinical management of patients with this currently incurable disease.

You will have a PhD in biological sciences and have considerable experience in cell signalling pathways in eukaryotic cells. Ideally, you will be a team player who can work alone when required. This position is full-time and initially for a fixed term of three years. You will be working with a team of researchers led by Dr Andrew Steele. Informal enquiries through (a.steele@soton.ac.uk) are welcome.
