About the role
This post offers an exciting opportunity to work within an internationally recognised group involved in basic, clinical and translational cancer research. You will be based in the lab of Prof Dyer within the Ernest and Helen Scott Haematological Research Institute at the Leicester Cancer Research Centre.
We are looking to appoint a research assistant to support our exciting research investigating the genomic landscape, novel therapeutic agents and mechanisms of drug resistance in haematological malignancies. The work will involve the assessment of novel therapeutics in cell lines and primary samples.
You will work collaboratively and independently as part of the research team and with industrial collaborators.
With a Masters or a PhD in a relevant subject, you will have experience of working in a laboratory setting. Experience and/or knowledge of cell culture, drug screening and flow cytometry would be desirable.

As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to professional development, this role will also be considered on a seconded basis for existing staff members. Please ensure this is discussed with your line manager prior to applying. More information regarding secondments can be found here
