The Cambridge Alliance on Medicines Safety (CAMS: https://www.ats.cam.ac.uk/what-we-do/cambridge-alliance-medicines-safety ) is delighted to be able to invite applications for a Junior Research Fellowship in epigenetic drug safety and toxicology.
This prestigious post-doctoral research fellowship aims to attract one of the very best early career researchers to Cambridge to develop a career in medicines safety science. The fellowship is intended to serve as a step towards independence in academic research. Successful applicants will have obtained a PhD in a relevant discipline and typically have had some postdoctoral experience.
This position will be based at the MRC Toxicology Unit within the Gleeson Building, Tennis Court Road, Cambridge.
The MRC Toxicology Unit is an internationally renowned institution focused on the delivery of field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. The Unit is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including super-resolution microscopy, advanced flow-cytometry, mass spectrometry and offers excellent opportunities for career development. We would welcome applications from individuals with a strong background in epigenetics and an interest in applying this in the area of medicines safety research.
Of interest to those wishing to apply, CAMS is hosting a virtual half-day symposium on Monday 19th April 2021 exploring the "Safety of Epigenetic Drugs": Please register your interest here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cams-epigenetic-safety-event-tickets-146594296487
We are seeking highly-motivated individuals with excellent communication skills who are able to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Given the opportunities enabled under the Alliance with AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline, applicants should also be able to demonstrate a specific interest in collaborating with industry to translate their research. Candidates should show exceptional initiative and demonstrate a capacity for innovation and independent thought.
To apply please include: 1. CV: a maximum of 3-pages outlining academic career, qualifications and full list of publications; please include hyperlinks of three best publications (not full copies). 2.
