Postdoctoral Researcher in Arginine Methylation

We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher, who will be part of an ongoing basic biology research project that aims to understand the cancer biology of the E2F family of transcription factors. The postholder will undertake state-of-the-art molecular, cell biological and biochemical techniques, in order to explore the E2F family Proteomics, genome wide analysis and RNA biology techniques will also be used. Precision and attention to detail will be crucial in order that the most convincing and reproducible scientific results are obtained.

Postdoctoral Researcher

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Department of Oncology. The postholder will progress a project on the role of post-translational modifications in the control of proliferation with particular emphasis on aberrations that occur in tumour cells. The objective of the project is to clarify the functional importance of new levels of control in both normal and cancer cells. You will work alongside several postdoctoral scientists in the laboratory.

Postdoctoral Researcher

We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Hammond’s group researching bioreductive approaches to targeted radiosensitisation and imaging of hypoxic tumours.
You will have a PhD/DPhil in molecular biology, biochemistry, biology or a related science (or have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the post). You must be able to demonstrate competence and success in the PhD research area (and postdoctoral work if appropriate), e.g. as judged by publications in high quality, peer reviewed journals.

Clinical Research Fellow/MSc in Experimental and Translational Therapeutics

The Department of Oncology has an opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow to join Dr Sarah Blagden’s group working on the Early Phase Cancer Trials Unit. You will work alongside staff in the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, Oxford University Hospitals and the University of Oxford. This post includes the opportunity to engage in a translational research project under the supervision of a scientist in the Oxford Cancer Research Centre.

Deputy Facilities Manager (Governance)

We have an exciting opportunity for a Deputy Facilities Manager (Governance) to support the Departmental Safety Office (DSO) and Building and Facilities Manager in the day-to-day management of the building and facilities in the Department of Oncology, and to ensure that first class research support is maintained within the Department. The postholder will deputise for the Building and Facilities Manager or DSO in their absence.

Research Assistant

The Higgins group’s focus is on developing new approaches to increase the effectiveness of radiotherapy, and where possible, translating these into proof of principle clinical trials. We are currently working on strategies to reduce tumour hypoxia, since this phenomenon is recognised as causing tumour radioresistance.

Trial Manager (2 posts)

We are looking for two Trial Managers to join the Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO), a team of trial management professionals, running a wide portfolio of early phase clinical trials and studies. We work across many different tumour types and therapeutic areas with trials at varying stages of set-up, active recruitment and follow-up.
