The Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine is looking to appoint a Professor in Haemato-oncology with an academic interest in haemato-oncology, stem cell transplantation and advanced therapies. This new post will be based predominantly on the Denmark Hill campus and will be strategically important for several major initiatives within the Comprehensive Cancer Centre.

This post will provide a strategic leadership role integrating various haematological programmes within the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences. It is expected that the postholder will have a shared leadership role within the KHP Haematology clinical leadership model (a triad leadership model comprised of the postholder in partnership with clinicians (Clinical Directors from King’s College Hospital and Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital).

We encourage applicants who have an internationally recognised clinical/translational research profile. The research interests of this post can range broadly, from developing advanced therapies through to patient stratification by characterising multiple components of the tumour immune microenvironment (TME).

The postholder will be expected to be a Senior Clinical academic who will have a keen interest and experience of working to develop potential future therapies. A collaborative approach in understanding immunotherapeutics at multiple levels through use of the cancer centre’s cutting-edge OMICS and imaging technologies, etc. would be advantageous for accelerating research and showcasing KCL and the cancer centre as an attractive partner of choice for industry.
