Summary of Role
We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral research fellow to deliver a CRUK funded research program that will shed light on how intra-tumoural phenotypic diversity affects clonal dynamics and their interaction with the tumour microenvironment.
The successful candidate will collaborate with other members of the lab to generate high-dimensional datasets (CyTOF, CODEX and scRNA-seq) using organoids and in vivo models of prostate cancer.
The ideal candidate holds a PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in biological or quantitative subject with a strong background in cancer biology and an undergraduate degree in molecular biology or similar subject. Significant wet-lab experience in functional screenings, high-parameter cell suspension profiling and/or single-cell RNA sequencing are essentials. Demonstrated R programming skills, experience in organoid culture, mouse work and mass cytometry would be an advantage
The ICR has a workforce agreement stating that Postdoctoral Training Fellows can only be employed for up to 7 years as PDTF at the ICR, providing total postdoctoral experience (including previous employment at this level elsewhere) does not exceed 10 years
