The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, School of Medicine, Dentistry & Biomedical Sciences (MDBS) at Queen’s University Belfast, is currently seeking to appoint a Research Fellow, to develop new computational models of the sensitivity of different cell types to radiation, based on radiation quality and the cells’ underlying genetic and physiological characteristics. The research fellow will work as part of an interdisciplinary team funded through Dr McMahon’s UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to develop novel predictive models of intrinsic sensitivity to radiation therapy.
The project will seek to link models of genetic pathways involved in radiation response to biophysical models of radiation damage, to enable the prediction of key factors governing radiation sensitivity from genetic and phenotypic data about cell lines. These model predictions will be benchmarked both as independent tools and as part of integrated biophysical models, using both locally-generated in vitro datasets as well as relevant clinical cohorts.
The successful candidate must have, and your application should clearly demonstrate you have:
