Unit: Edinburgh Cancer Research UK Centre, Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine
Line manager: Prof Margaret Frame
Funding/term: 6 month post
Applications are invited for an ambitious postdoctoral research scientist (or finishing PhD student) to join a cross-disciplinary research group seeking to understand the drivers of cancer biology processes to assist the discovery of new treatments, predominantly but not exclusively for glioblastoma. Located within the Edinburgh Cancer Research UK Centre, University of Edinburgh, the successful candidate will play a key role in a collaborative research program between the laboratories of M Frame, V Brunton and N Carragher. They will work in a dynamic multi-disciplinary environment using state-of-the-art cell and molecular biology and imaging technologies to advance understanding of the mechanisms underpinning cancer development and resistance to therapy. The postholder will be responsible for experimental planning, record keeping and delivery of defined, but exciting, cell and molecular biology experiments in the latest cancer models.
The successful candidate will have significant laboratory experience in tissue culture, molecular biology and protein biology techniques. Further expertise in in CRISPR-based genome editing and microscopic imaging and image analysis are desirable.
This position is ideally suited for an ambitious post-doctoral (or finishing PhD student) researcher with a sound background and hands on experience in cell and molecular biology techniques, and who may wish a short-term contract in current and post-covid-19 situation.
