Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
Institute of Translational Medicine
Chair in Tumour Biology
The Liverpool Cancer Research UK Centre was established in 2009 bringing together basic Cancer Cell Biology research with Clinical and Translational research based principally in the Departments of Cellular and Molecular Physiology and Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine in the Institute of Translational Medicine. Key components within the Centre include the Liverpool Tissue Bank, the Liverpool Gene Editing Facility and the Cancer Cell Imaging, Biomedical Electron Microscopy, Transgenesis and Statistics and Bioinformatics Units. There is close interaction with the Cancer Research UK Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit, the Liverpool NIHR Pancreas Biomedical Research Unit, the Liverpool Early Drug Development Unit, the MRC Centre for Genomics Research and the MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science.
As part of the new Cancer Strategy of the University, developed in conjunction with the Liverpool Cancer Research UK Centre, we are expanding the number of Chairs and Research Group Leaders in basic sciences related to cancer.
We are seeking to recruit Chairs of (1) Molecular Oncology (North West Cancer Research Fund); (2) Tumour Biology, preferably focused on tumour microenvironment, tumour stem cells or systems level analysis of tumour development/metastasis, and (3) Cancer Pharmacology, the latter to support the development of novel therapeutic agents, working closely with the Liverpool Early Drug Development Unit and the Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology.
We are also seeking to recruit group leaders in the following areas of cancer research: cell division, signal transduction, ubiquitin biology, tumour biology and tumour microenvironment linked to the themed strategic areas of Pancreas, Hepato-Biliary, Head and Neck, Ocular, Haemato-Oncology and Cancer Pathology. Positions are available at junior and senior levels, with negotiable generous packages.
The Institute is currently making a significant investment in the development of excellent laboratories and provision of essential technologies for basic science to ensure our staff have a first-class research environment. Specifically, we have a Technologies Directorate to ensure that we maintain high quality technological capability and resources.
