We are seeking to appoint a highly qualified and dedicated Postdoctoral Research Associate in Translational Biology to join our research team at Oxford Translational Myeloma Centre which is based at Botnar Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), Oxford
As a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Translational Biology you will lead laboratory experiments and the computational analysis and interpretation of data with the goal of discovering biological pathways, patterns and genes that are responsible for the drivers of drug response or resistance in multiple myeloma. You will specifically interrogate multiple Myeloma cell lines and immune cells for studying the mechanism of action of epigenetic therapy in Multiple Myeloma . In partnership with industrial and academic collaborators you will analyse patient derived genomic, immune, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data to build hypothesis and test them in laboratory models. You will contribute ideas for new research projects, collaborate in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles and act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group.
You will hold a PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in a discipline of direct relevance to molecular techniques and assays together with experience to undertake cell based analysis of drug activities. Ability to develop novel assays for testing compounds and their mechanisms based on genetics, OMICs and other assays is essential for success in this project. We are looking for a candidate who would be able to deliver high quality research outputs, as demonstrated by a strong publication record in high profile scientific journals. Familiarity with the existing literature and research in the field of Myeloma or cancer biology together with passion for problem-solving desirable but not essential. Experience in drug related research, strong publication track record and experience of presenting work at meetings and cross-disciplinary collaborative experience are desirable.
This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 2 years in the first instance.
The closing date for this position is 12 noon on Wednesday 3 January 2023. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
