You will contribute to a June Hancock Mesothelioma Research funded project focusing on the in vivo and in vitro analysis of a novel class of immuno-oncology agents. The project will involve pre-clinical in vivo models of mesothelioma as well as a bespoke bioreactor system in vitro. Analysis of the effects of the novel drugs will focus on immunological parameters. This is an interdisciplinary project and you should be able to interact effectively with researchers from a range of other disciplines to contribute to the programme of research.
You should hold a PhD or equivalent in cell biology, immunology or a related discipline. Detailed knowledge of, and experience in, in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo validation of biologically active compounds is essential. Experience in the use of complex in vitro cancer modelling, as well as a developing track record of publications, is highly desirable.

The offer of employment will be dependent on the successful candidate passing that screening. Whilst you will be required to provide express consent at a later stage, by continuing with your application now you acknowledge that you are aware that such screening will take place, and agree to take part in the process.
