Postdoctoral Researcher in New Drugs to Target Hypoxia in Cancer

We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Adrian Harris’s laboratory, based at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine at the John Radcliffe Hospital, where you will conduct research to the highest standards and produce data that will generate understanding of the value of inhibiting CA IX with new inhibitors, their in vitro and in vivo benefits alone and in combination with other modalities of therapy.

Human Resources Office Manager

Reporting into the Head of HR, we have an exciting new opportunity for a suitably experienced HR professional to manage a small team providing a comprehensive HR service to staff within the Department of Oncology.
This is an interesting and varied operational ‘hands-on’ role providing the opportunity for involvement in a range of areas including recruitment, training and development, data analysis and providing advice and guidance on procedural issues.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Breast Cancer

We are seeking a highly motivated and capable Postdoctoral Researcher to perform research into chromatin regulation and genome stability in breast cancer. The research will be performed in the Chromosome Integrity Group led by Dr Timothy Humphrey within the CRUK-MRC Institute for Radiation Oncology, at the University of Oxford. This is a full-time post available for 3 years funded by the Breast Cancer Now charity. The project will build on advances made by the group into the specific targeting of epigenetic defects in cancer with the aim of taking the findings into clinical trial.
