Postdoctoral Researcher - DNA Damage Signalling and Repair

We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work in the laboratories of Dr Anne Kiltie and Professor Eleanor Stride. You will be part of two enthusiastic research teams investigating the role of DNA damage signaling and DNA repair. The primary aim of this post is to develop an encapsulated delivery method for chemotherapy drugs using micro/nanobubble technology for use in vivo, in an orthotopic bladder cancer model, in combination with ionising radiation.

Forward genetic screens in haploid mammalian stem cells: looking beyond CRISPR/Cas9

Recent adaptation of the CRISPR/Cas9 bacterial system to facilitate manipulation of mammalian genomes has provided a real breakthrough for genome editing applications. Development of whole-genome CRISPR libraries with the aim of generating gene knockouts for every single coding sequence has allowed forward genetic screening in mammalian cells with unprecedented efficiency and versatility. CRISPR/Cas9 approaches, however, rely on phenotypes associated with loss-of-function mutations.
