The Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) works with partners around the world developing cancer treatments and pioneering advances in patient care.
Our integrated clinical, translational and basic scientific research programmes address clinically unmet needs. Our principal objective is to promote evidence-based, innovative research including clinical trials which will underpin improved patient outcomes in high incidence solid tumours of genito-urinary, gastro-intestinal, breast, lung and ovarian origin, and in specific blood cancers. Our unifying research theme is to develop translational outputs, in the form of biomarkers and/or novel therapeutic strategies that enable CCRCB to be at the forefront of experimental and personalised cancer medicine in these prevalent diseases.
The Clinical Lecturer in Medical Oncology will strengthen the clinical academic base of medical oncology within the Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology (CCRCB). The successful candidate will join academic teams specialising in medical oncology and in cancer clinical trials in the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) and also established medical oncology teams in the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust (BHSCT).
The successful candidate will undertake research in line with the School's research strategy, teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level, contribute to the Centre and School's administration and outreach activity to deliver and enhance clinical service in medical oncology. We will consider candidates whose research interests fit with those of CCRCB and we particularly wish to increase our strengths in the areas of breast, colorectal, thoracic and urological malignancy, immunotherapy and experimental cancer medicine.
