Gene Expression in cancer – Prof Victoria Cowling
Project title: Investigating RNA cap regulation in cancer
Salary Range: from £25,767 to £43,197 (Depending on qualifications and experience)
Contract term: 12 month fixed term contract (Maternity cover)
The CRUK Beatson Institute is a cancer research institute, situated in Glasgow with approximately 250 researchers split across 30 research groups consisting of PIs, postdoctoral scientists, PhD students and scientific officers. It is one of Europe's leading cancer research centres, supporting cutting-edge work into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development. As well as core support from Cancer Research UK, the Institute also receives an additional third of its total income from external grants and industry collaborations. It has an excellent reputation for fundamental cancer research, including world-class metabolism studies and renowned in vivo modelling of tumour growth and metastasis. Its research ethos is about excellence, honesty, openness, accountability, and integrity.
We currently have a position available to provide maternity cover (from Jan 2024) in an immunology project in the Gene Expression Laboratory. You will primarily be responsible for research projects aimed at understanding RNA cap regulation in T cells, using a variety of in vitro, tissue culture and in vivo approaches, with the precise project dependent on the experience of the scientist. The successful candidate will have a relevant degree and preferentially a PhD. Experience in gene regulation research, biochemistry, molecular biology and/or T cell biology would be advantageous but not essential. Team working and organisational skills are important.
