The Hannon laboratory at the CRUK Cambridge Institute (part of the University of Cambridge) is recruiting for a laboratory manager/ scientific associate to join a team of scientists studying the spatial architecture of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and its response to treatment. This role will require interaction with a highly interdisciplinary team. Greg Hannon is the lead investigator, with co-Principal investigators Jean Abraham and John Marioni and co-investigators Jasmin Fisher, Dario Bressan, Menna Clatworthy, Walid Khaled, and Sam Aparicio.
With support from a CRUK Grand Challenge grant, we have substantial capabilities for carrying out spatial molecular profiling. This expertise resulted in us being awarded funding as part of the Wellcome Leap Delta Tissue Program (https://wellcomeleap.org/delta-tissue/). Within this program we are running a project that aims to profile the 'tissue state' of TNBC prior to and after neo-adjuvant chemotherapy in responders and non-responders with the goal of creating a model to predict tissue end state from its initial state.
As part of the Wellcome Leap delta tissue program, we have the fantastic opportunity of hosting the world's largest spatial proteomics laboratory with the aim of pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible within the field.
We require a laboratory manager to run this facility who has practical experience in the molecular biology/ histology field. This role will be diverse, ranging from the running of human samples, understanding and implementing analysis pipelines, maintaining the machines, and dealing with breakdowns. Experience in microscopy or staining techniques such as image mass cytometry (IMC) immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunofluorescence (IF) is highly desirable. This individual must also be an excellent communicator, working closely with internal members of the team and external suppliers to ensure the smooth and effective all year running of the facility. Also important for this project is the ability to work under pressure to meet tight deadlines, ordering and negotiating with suppliers and experience working with human tissues.
Applicants should have a B.Sc. as a minimum in a relevant discipline.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 20 months in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a security check.
Closing Date: 2nd January 2023
Interview Date: 9th - 13th January 2023
