About the role
We are seeking a high calibre scientist with a research profile of international standing to join the Leicester Cancer Research Centre, within the Department of Genetics and Genome Biology to conduct high quality research and teaching in the field of cancer immunology and prevention, focussing on developing agents which prevent cancer and understanding the mechanisms underlying their effects. There is also a major emphasis on developing new biomarkers which can indicate the clinical effectiveness of these agents in trials and aid preclinical discovery.
We are looking for an established researcher, with a high quality publication profile in cancer immunology or more general immunology with a strong interest in cancer and potentially fundable research ideas. You will have experience of research in cancer prevention or willingness to apply your skills and expertise to this area of research. You will also have a collaborative attitude to research and willingness to work as part of a team, whilst also developing an independent research programme. You must have excellent networking skills, which you use to seek out opportunities for collaboration and citizenship, both internally and externally.
You will also be an enthusiastic educator capable of inspiring interest, curiosity and drive for learning in our students. You will have a real passion for the subject matter and be motivated to provide the very best experience for our students using your expertise and skill to ensure all reach their potential.
