We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Eric O’Neill’s group as part of a national research team focusing on personalised therapy of pancreatic cancer, www.precisionpanc.org. The post will address the susceptibility of specific genetic backgrounds identified in human pancreatic tumours to novel combination therapies, including immunotherapy and radiation. The project will utilise mouse models as pre-clinical models together with state of the art imaging and radiation delivery systems to determine optimal effective treatments. This project also will investigate the nature of the tumour microenvironment and how it effects responses to therapy.
You will have (or be working towards) a PhD in cancer biology or related subject. Experience with mouse models and pre-clinical validation in vivo is an essential requirement, together with evidence of prior publications as a first author in peer-reviewed scientific journals. A UK Home Office personal licence would be advantageous but is not essential.
This is a full-time post offered for a fixed-term of 3 years.
All applicants must complete an application form and upload a CV and supporting statement.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 21 August 2017.
