The Opportunity

A Level B research-only academic is expected to carry out independent and/or team research within the field in which they are appointed and to carry out activities to develop their research expertise relevant to the particular field of research

The Research Fellow will work as part of the team performing Molecular Pathology, Molecular/Medical Genetic and other analyses conducted as part of the overall Precision Medicine research program. Emphasis will be focused on breast cancer susceptibility, especially the interpretation of genetic (germline) variation and how it may be involved in breast tumour susceptibility and progression (including tumour phenotype). It is expected that the Research Fellow will develop an increasingly independent research programme involving key genes such as ATM that complements these activities and utilises the resources of the Precision Medicine team. The Research Fellow will also work coherently with multiple international collaborators to achieve multinational research objectives and as such it will be a requirement that the successful candidate will have had international collaborating experience before within similar research programs.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
