Research Fellow

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in molecular and cellular biology including next generation sequencing techniques?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to lead on the experimental aspects of a programme grant aimed at profiling brain tumours, optimising model systems and designing functional assays. This will involve epigenetic (ChIPseq-based) profiling of valuable patient samples, assessment of existing and novel, cutting-edge in-vitro and ex-vivo experimental models and a lead role in determining the best assays to test the resulting hypotheses.  

You will work closely with a senior computational biologist to create datasets, and make biologically and clinically meaningful inferences from the results of their analyses.

You will have a PhD and research experience in molecular biology or other relevant field, expertise in the management and supervision of student projects and a strong desire to translate genomic information into clinical application.
