A demonstrated ability to communicate well, work within a team and maintain good laboratory records are also essential.
About the School/Department/Institute/Project
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our leukaemia biology team at Barts Cancer Institute. The successful candidate will explore novel molecular techniques to monitor ALL resistance and relapse using both bulk and single cell sequencing technologies, applying these tools to both experimental models of ALL resistance/relapse as well as human samples. The successful candidate will work within an integrated programme of ALL research at Barts Cancer Institute and alongside NHS teams in the Molecular Diagnostic Services at St Barts Hospital. The position will be a unique opportunity for those considering a future career in academic research or an onward career in cancer genomics within the NHS. Potential candidates must have practical experience in molecular biology. Practical knowledge in flow cytometry and bioinformatics data mining is a plus.
