Postdoctoral Researcher in Cancer Biology and Virotherapy

We seek an outstanding Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Seymour’s virotherapy research group in the Department of Oncology. The primary focus of the appointee will be to design lytic adenoviruses with potent anticancer activities. Major areas of focus will be in understanding how oncolytic viruses exploit the cancer phenotype, how they behave in the cancer microenvironment, and how they can engender a strong anticancer immune response.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Molecular Biology of Hypoxia in Cancer

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Adrian Harris’s laboratory at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine.
This project will involve using CRISPR libraries to investigate the mechanisms of survival under hypoxia and changes in RNA processing that occur in survival pathways in cancer. This will give excellent experience in CRISPR technology and screening and single cell analysis of hypoxia biology. The work will involve extensive functional characterisation and requires a high level of molecular and cell biology expertise.
