About the Role
 
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, clinically qualified candidate (with an interest in hepatology, hepatobiliary surgery or oncology) to join our established, multi-disciplinary team, to undertake a clinical fellowship in liver cancer early detection. The post is full time, for 3 years, and the successful applicant would be expected to register for a DPhil (PhD). Your fees for the DPhil will be paid.
 
You will play an active role in the execution of clinical studies within DeLIVER (https://deliver.cancer.ox.ac.uk/), a CRUK funded program that seeks to detect hepatocellular liver cancer (HCC) early.   
 
You will be responsible for supporting the DeLIVER team in acquiring liver tissue by i) performing fine needle aspirations/liver biopsy, and ii) by liaising with the interventional radiologists and hepatobiliary surgeons. This program would involve the evaluation of bio-markers (immune and/or genetic) in blood, HCC, and the back-ground liver, that will support early cancer detection and enhance our understanding of pathways in the liver that lead to HCC transformation.
