An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated and ambitious Postdoctoral Scientist to join Professor Paresh Vyas at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine. The postholder will be based in the Vyas laboratory and will work with Professor Vyas and other investigators in the [MRC Molecular Haematology Unit][1].

The [Vyas laboratory][2] is world-leading in the study of the biology of human stem cell biology and human acute myeloid leukaemia. The applicant will use state of the art methods in single cell biology and study the impact of novel anti-leukaemic stem cell therapies, using samples from patients treated in clinical trials of novel first-in-class therapies. A key aim will be to identify the mechanisms of disease response and resistance, which are vital to understand how to optimise development of leukaemic stem cell targeted therapies.
