The School of Life Sciences is at the forefront of research in the biological sciences in the UK, coming in the top 10 in the REF 2014.

We wish to appoint a Research Technician (Grade 7) to work in the Cancer Cell Signalling research laboratory of Dr Georgios Giamas. The Giamas laboratory focuses on the identification and elucidation of the role of proteins implicated in the progression of cancer and the development of novel therapeutic targets. Our translational research laboratory combines a variety of molecular, cellular and biochemical techniques along with established in vitro/in vivo models and patients' specimens to study relevant pathways in cancer. In aggregate, our research links ‘bench work to bedside’ and can have an enormous impact to patients while at the same time supporting the entire scientific community.
