Under the leadership of Dr Christian Zierhut, we are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Training Fellow to join the Genome Stability and Innate Immunity Group at the Division of Cancer Biology, situated in the ICR's Chester Beatty Laboratories in Chelsea, London. The project is aimed at developing an exciting new research programme to determine how innate immune signalling is activated by breast cancer-associated genome instability, and how it can be exploited for cancer therapy. The successful candidate will have intellectual freedom in developing this project, with support from the Group Leader, whilst working as part of a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team.
For general information on Post Doc's at The ICR can be found here.
The successful candidate must have experience in innate immunity and/or genome instability research, and technical experience with automated microscopy and image analysis, genomic analysis, CRISPR and genetic screens is desirable.
The ICR has a workforce agreement stating that Postdoctoral Training Fellows can only be employed for up to 7 years as PDTF at the ICR, providing total postdoctoral experience (including previous employment at this level elsewhere) does not exceed 10 years
Our team is embedded within the Cancer Biology Division at the ICR’s Chester Beatty Laboratories in Chelsea, London. We have a highly supportive and interactive research environment, and state of the art facilities for cell biology, molecular biology, next-generation sequencing and structural biology.
