Research Associate/Fellow in Cancer Cell Biology

University of Nottingham - Pharmacy

This post will assess the effects of radiotherapy on specific breast cancer cells, and evaluate drug delivery systems designed to target these cells. The work will also involve developing appropriate cell models which recapitulate radiation therapy biology, and using these with materials developed by the polymer chemists in the team. The post will primarily be based at Nottingham City Hospital but will also include time at the Queens Medical Centre and the School. 

Candidates must have skills in cell culture, preferably in the use of 3D cell models. Experience of working in multidisciplinary groups and joint projects with materials scientists and chemists is desirable. Candidates will have been awarded, or submitted, a PhD in biochemistry, molecular or cell biology or a closely-related discipline and have published work in cell biology.

This is a full-time, fixed-term post for a period of 24 months.
