Research Assistant in Functional Genomics

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Research Assistant in Functional Genomics, working under the direct supervision of Dr Benjamin Fairfax, who has extensive experience in functional genomics and the recruitment of healthy volunteers and patients from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. This is research programme with three complementary themes: genomic and transcriptomic predictors of response to cancer immunotherapy; eQTL analyses with specific reference to cell type and environment; DNA methylation across conditions.

Finance Officer (Grants)

A secondment opportunity has arisen for a Finance Officer (Grants) in the Department of Oncology. The postholder will be responsible for assisting with the smooth management of part of the department’s large and complex grant portfolio as well as playing an instrumental role in the standardising and continued improvement of finance processes and procedures.

Postdoctoral Researcher - Tumour Hypoxia (2 posts)

We have currently two Postdoctoral Researcher positions available in Dr Ester Hammond’s lab, whose research is focused on tumour hypoxia and how this impacts treatment response. Each postdoctoral researcher will focus on investigating the hypoxia-induced DNA damage response and, wherever possible, translating this knowledge to improve therapy response. The candidates will also be expected to assist in the running of the laboratory.

Postdoctoral Researcher - DNA Damage Signalling and Repair

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position within the Genome Stability and Tumourigenesis Group led by Professor Madalena Tarsounas. The primary goal of the Genome Stability and Tumourigenesis Group is to investigate how tumour cells lacking BRCA1 or BRCA2 tumour suppressors develop tolerance to endogenous replication stress and how this, in turn, sustains cell proliferation and tumour growth.

Laboratory Assistant

We have an opportunity for a Laboratory Assistant to join the Department of Oncology Operations team. You will be part of a team providing support to the scientific research staff and students across different sites.
You will manage defined areas of research laboratory support and exercise judgement in bringing specific issues to the attention of the Building and Facilities Manager in a timely manner. Duties of the role include the provision of glassware, waste management and technical services.

Postdoctoral Researcher in DNA Damage and Ubiquitylation

We have a new and exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Dr Vincenzo D’Angiolella’s group at CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute of Radiation Oncology, University of Oxford. The primary focus of the Group is to identify novel signalling mechanisms of ubiquitylation in the DNA damage response mediated by E3 ubiquitin ligases and deubiquitylating enzymes.
