As one of Cancer Research UK’s core-funded institutes we carry out a programme of world-class science directed at understanding key aspects of cancer cell behaviour, and try to translate these discoveries into new therapies and diagnostic/prognostic tools to help cancer patients. The Institute benefits from close interactions with the University of Glasgow, including strong links with the University’s Institute of Cancer Sciences. We occupy a magnificent research building that has allowed us to develop some state-of-the-art technologies in focused areas to underpin our key research themes. We also provide outstanding training opportunities for young scientists and host many seminars and meetings to bring all the news from the international cancer research community to Glasgow.
Post : Post Doctoral Fellow
Would you like to develop your scientific career in a research institute that is founded on the quality of its people and designed to promote the development of the most outstanding and dedicated scientists? Many early career researchers have already made that decision and at present over 100 of them are now benefiting from our excellent training programme.
A motivated, organised and talented individual is sought for this post to support a project developing preclinical murine models of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in the laboratory of Dr Tom Bird. The aim of the project is to generate and validate a range of genetically engineered models recapitulating the disease in human HCC subtypes. The post holder will contribute to the establishment of advanced in vivo murine models, including orthotopic transplantation and tumour derived organoid culture. Disease positioning of these murine tumours against human HCC subtypes will include in vivo imaging, transcriptomic, lipidomic and immunological profiling. Work will involve working as part of a team. It will provide access to the exceptional core facilities in the CRUK Beatson Institute, collaboration with the both local and international groups, and will involve the supervision of Masters and Doctoral students.
Must have a PhD in a relevant field, be driven by scientific curiosity, and have an excellent publication record in cell biology. Experience with in vivo models of cancer, including in vivo imaging, organoid culture and/or liver tumour models will be an advantage.
