Applications are invited for a full-time Lecturer in Cancer Biology in the Division of Cancer Sciences.
To develop next generation cancer research in Manchester, we aim to make five tenure-track appointments over the next five years. We are particularly interested in non-clinical, discovery scientists looking to form partnerships with existing clinical research teams. Indeed, our vision is a growing number of clinical/non-clinical partnerships to bring about transformative oncology research at the discovery/translational interface.
Our location adjacent to Europe’s largest single-site cancer hospital provides world-leading biobanking opportunities; we are therefore interested in individuals looking to establish ‘reverse translational’ pipelines to interrogate biological mechanisms, novel therapeutics, and biomarkers in patient-derived samples. You may not yet be focused on a specific cancer subtype, but you will have a vision for how your research could address key clinical questions in cancer, and you will be able to bring something new to Manchester, e.g., new technologies, ideas, and ways of working. You will be a future leader in your field, driving exciting research that enhances our strengths, and we will support you in the development of an independent and aspirational research programme. You will already appreciate that training the next generation is both important and rewarding, and we will provide opportunities to shape our undergraduate teaching programmes and postgraduate training pathways.
At Manchester, we embrace, celebrate and respect difference. We support each other to create an environment where everyone is able to reach their full potential. The Division’s ethos is to promote an inclusive and representative environment where all staff and students have voices with potential to influence positive change. We encourage applications from talented individuals from wide and diverse backgrounds, and in particular those currently underrepresented. The School of Medical Sciences holds a Silver Athena SWAN award which recognises good practice in relation to gender, flexible working arrangements, family-friendly policies, and good work-life balance. All appointments are made on merit.
Our University is positive about flexible working – you can find out more here
