You will be educated to BA/BSc level or equivalent in immunology or a related subject and have significant experience of working in a laboratory environment. Technical competence and experience with tissue culture, cellular biology, protein biochemistry and immunology is also essential, together with an in-depth understanding of TNF-alpha functions, cell death and immunol homeostasis. This is a part-time post, working 18.25 hours per week, and is offered for 2 years. All applicants must complete a short application form, upload a CV and supporting statement. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 24 May 2013.

Professor Fergus Gleeson is seeking to recruit a Clinical Research Fellow to join his research group, providing them with an opportunity to study in a high calibre research environment, working towards a DPhil. This fellowship will provide a first class research environment for a young clinician scientist and provide a framework for research and training in the combined fields of basic science and clinical medicine. The fellowship is structured around the existing research programmes in the Imaging in Therapy programme of the Oxford Cancer Imaging Centre, and current research using multimodal functional imaging to better assess tumour characterisation focusing on hypoxia, angiogenesis, the heterogeneity of imaging expression and tumour therapy resistance. The candidate will be required to include a suggested research project in their Fellowship application. Candidates are encouraged to meet with Professor Gleeson to discuss the post. The successful candidate will be a GMC registered Medical Practitioner with a strong academic track record, e.g. a BSc (or equivalent) with a 1st or 2:1; honours or distinction in the MB finals, with an interest in oncological imaging. Evidence of a strong publication record, of which at least one should be a first author publication in a high ranking scientific journal, and basic experience in laboratory science and/or trials are desirable. They should also have good interpersonal and communication skills. This full-time post is offered for 3 years. For any additional information regarding this post please contact Professor Fergus Gleeson via email: fergus.gleeson@.ox.ac.uk . All applicants must complete a short online application form, upload a CV and supporting statement. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 14 June 2013.

The Department of Oncology which incorporates the Cancer Research-UK/MRC Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology & Biology, within the Medical Sciences Division, aims to develop truly multidisciplinary and collaborative oncology research in Oxford. Working closely with colleagues in the new state-of-the-art NHS Oxford Cancer Centre, research can be rapidly and efficiently translated into cutting-edge clinical treatment for cancer patients. The postholder is expected to lead a programme of research trials and clinical cancer activity for the Department of Oncology and the Oxford Cancer Research Centre. The postholder will develop clinical research questions and have the skills necessary to design and progress these questions into early phase trial activity, taking a leading role in the Early Phase Trials Unit. The post would suit a consultant Medical Oncologist with a focus in a disease area which aligns to and complements that of the Oxford Cancer Research Centre. The postholder will be expected to develop their own independent, innovative research programme, working in collaboration with both basic and translational groups in Oxford and will have a regular commitment to appropriate clinical activity which will support the trials programme. An honorary contract with the Oxford University Hospitals Trust will be required for the successful candidate. A professorial title may be sought from the University for suitably qualified candidates. All applicants must complete a short application form; upload a CV and supporting statement. Applications should contain names and addresses of three referees (one of which should be your current or most recent employer), details of GMC registration and CCT. The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 21 June 2013.
