Division of Medicine

Our aim is to better understand nanoparticle delivery to solid tumours. This project will combine cutting-edge imaging techniques with mathematical modelling to study the relationship between drug delivery and tumour microstructure in both human organs (from transplant surgery) and mouse models. It is a collaboration between researchers in the UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI), the UCL Department of Chemistry, Cancer Institute and the Royal Free Hospital.

The post will provide an exciting opportunity to develop and combine multimodal imaging technologies, create image analysis tools and perform experiments to study nanoparticle delivery in human tumours, alongside working effectively within a multidisciplinary research group.

The post is funded for 1 year in the first instance.

The applicant should hold a PhD in physics, biophysics, medical imaging, computer science, mathematics or equivalent (or be about to be awarded a PhD), and have an extensive knowledge of biomedical imaging technologies. They would require experience in programming in Matlab, Python, C++, or similar, have a proven ability to design, implement, document and analyse experiments, and have a strong publication track record.

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 - £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
