We are currently offering an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to provide leadership and direction in the Molecular Biology Core Facility (MBCF) at CRUK MI. The Institute hosts world class research facilities and we are looking for a person who will continue to develop a high quality facility.
The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (, an Institute of The University of Manchester (, is a world-leading centre for excellence in cancer research.

Our aim is to understand the fundamental basis of cancer and apply that knowledge to developing new treatment strategies for cancer patients. Our advanced research programmes span a spectrum of cancer research, from the molecular and cellular basis of cancer through to drug discovery, translational research and clinical trials. The Institute houses several state of the art core facilities that play a key role in providing access to technology platforms that underpin many of the research programs on site.
