Research Associate - Comprehensive Cancer Centre
Department : Comprehensive Cancer Centre
We seek a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate to work on an exciting project aimed at understanding the interplay between the genetic makeup of cancer cells and the tumour microenvironment in response to cancer immunotherapy.
The research associate will lead on handling and analysing cancer samples from patients who have been treated with immune checkpoint blockade. These samples will be profiled at various levels (genomics, transcriptomics, immunephenotyping) to derive a complete map of molecular characteristics of the tumour and surrounding tumour microenvironment. These data will be then used to interpret the response of patients to immunotherapy.
Our group is part of the School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Sciences of King's College London and are seconded to the laboratory of the Francis Crick Institute where the post will be based. Our expertise is in cancer genomics and this project is highly interdisciplinary. It will be done in collaboration with Professor Jo Spencer, an expert in mucosal immunology at King's College London, and with clinicians at the University College of London.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months.
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent
The selection process will include a panel interview.
