University of Oxford - Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM)

Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM), Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Old Road Campus Research Building, Headington, Oxford

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Genetics/Genomics to carry out cellular and organismal modelling of human genetic variants that affect cancer using cutting edge gene editing techniques. 

You will have the opportunity to work on an exciting multi-disciplinary project and in close collaboration with bioinformaticians, clinicians and other groups within the university. The Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Genetics/Genomics role will be suitable for any graduate who is interested in utilising genetic, cellular and biochemical techniques to explore the interaction between genetics and environmental stresses and to determine how these interactions affect cellular fates.

In your role, as Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Genetics/Genomics, you will possess experience managing cancer genetics projects in vivo models, as well as possessing experience in ex-vivo cell culture assays. Previous laboratory experience, good communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a team are essential, along with an excellent track record for publishing and presenting scientific discoveries. 

A detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind tumourigenesis is crucial, along with the ability to carry out a wide range of molecular and cellular biology techniques, as well as basic and advanced in vivo techniques relevant to cancer research. You will hold a PhD degree in cancer genetics/genomics or be near to completion.

You will also be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on 14 November 2016 will be considered.
