SUMMARY OF THE POST
We are recruiting a highly motivated team member to the Short Linear Motif Team in the Division of Cancer Biology. A Cancer Research UK-funded Postdoctoral Training Fellow position (on a fixed-term contract for 2 1/2 years in the first instance) will be available to develop and apply therapeutic target discovery methods focussing on the inhibition of interactions in the cell cycle. This work is part of a larger project characterising motif-mediated interactions to identify weak points in cancer cells for therapeutic intervention.
SPECIFIC DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Any other duties which may be required and are consistent with the nature and grade of the post.
This job description is a reflection of the present position and is subject to review and alteration in detail and emphasis in the light of future changes or development.
