Lincoln College proposes to elect four non-stipendiary Fellows in the Medical and Biomedical Sciences from 1 March 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter. Details of the fellowships are provided below:
The BTG Junior Research Fellowship in Biomedical Sciences
The application process is the same for all fellowships and applicants may apply for one or all of these positions using a single application.
These Fellowships recognise the contribution made by the “factor IX protein” patent originally filed in 1985, and licensed by BTG plc. The inventors of the patent devised a way of obtaining factor IX protein artificially from recombinant DNA constructs introduced into cell culture [Anson DS Austen DEG & Brownlee GG (1985) Nature, 315, 683-685 and a subsequent contribution from Jones I M (unpublished)]. This enabled, from 1999, the commercial production of factor IX protein free of contamination by viruses such as HIV or Hepatitis C virus for the treatment of Haemophilia B patients.
It is expected that the Fellows will be resident in Oxford for a significant proportion of the academic year and that they will take advantage of the opportunities presented to engage in the academic and social life of the College.
Further particulars for each role and details of how to apply are available from: https://lincoln.ox.ac.uk/discover/vacancies/vacancy-junior-research-fellowships-in-biomedical-sciences
Applications must be submitted via the College website by 12 midday (UK time) on Wednesday 2rd February 2022 Application forms in alternative formats may be requested from email@example.com, the completed forms to be received in College by the same date.
