About the role
An exciting opportunity to join Professor Ester Hammond’s team focused on the validation of novel tools to measure and study tumour hypoxia. Prof Hammond is part of a collaborative interdisciplinary programme funded by the EPSRC (redOX-KCL) (http://redox.chem.ox.ac.uk). redOX-KCL brings together leading organic and inorganic chemists, molecular biologists and imaging specialists from the University of Oxford and King's College, London. Together they are investigating the dynamics of the redOX environment in complex biological systems.
This role will not only progress the validation of novel probes being generated in the groups of Profs Conway and Faulkner (Department of Chemistry, Oxford) but will also investigate redOX-dependent changes in the biological response to hypoxia. You will manage your own research and administrative activities, within guidelines provided by senior colleagues. You will contribute to wider project planning, including ideas for new research projects and determine the most appropriate methodologies to test hypotheses, identify suitable alternatives if technical problems arise.
The post will be based at the Old Road Campus Research Building, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7DQ, and is offered on a full-time basis, fixed-term until 31 July 2025.
You will hold a first degree, together with some relevant experience. You will have sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes. Excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present data at conferences, and represent the research group at meetings, are essential, together with the experience of following and adapting protocols and selecting appropriate experimental methodologies. Previous experience of contributing to reports and articles for publication, along with experience working in a research team and contributing ideas for new research projects would be an advantage.
You will be required to upload a statement of purpose (setting out how you meet the selection criteria), a curriculum vitae and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application.
