Recent clinical trials have revealed new classes of immune-based cancer therapies that target key pathways of the immune and immune-interacting tumour microenvironment. Either alone or in combination with conventional chemotherapeutics, these interventions have led to unprecedented results in patients with previously untreatable advanced disease. However, in ongoing clinical trials less than 15% of patients with various cancer types respond to immunotherapy and for some patients these new treatments lead to life-threatening toxicities. There is therefore an urgent need to develop reliable tools for patient stratification in order to ensure that only those likely to benefit are given a specific treatment.

The post holder will contribute expertise in assessing, testing and applying technologies of all types associated with the stratification of patients for immune-oncology treatments.

This post will be offered on a Fixed-Term Contract for 32 months

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.
