Opening For Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Therapeutics : Cambridgeshire

 A postdoctoral opportunity has become available for a molecular cell biologist focusing on the use of combinations of anti-cancer drugs to identify novel therapeutic approaches and circumvent drug resistance. This position is within the teams of McDermott and Garnett as part of the Cancer Genome Project at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
The team perform large-scale combinatorial and single agent drug sensitivity screens in cancer cell lines and linking drug response with detailed genetic, transcriptomic, epigenetic and proteomic datasets to identify biomarkers of drug response that can be used to develop new therapeutic strategies (Garnett, et al. Nature, 2012). This role will be involved in the design and analysis of results from large-scale drug sensitivity screens, and leading to mechanistic studies to validate candidate combinatorial therapeutic strategies. .
You will be working within a dynamic environment as part of a multi-disciplinary team formed of postdocs, students, bioinformaticians, statisticians and computer biologists. The team has unique experience performing high-throughput drug sensitivity screens and integrating these results with large-scale genomic datasets, together with mechanistic studies, to identify new therapeutic strategies and transition these finding into clinical trials. Candidates will have access to state-of-art facilities and resources including high content microscopy, large-scale functional screening infrastructure (chemical, RNAi, CRISPR, transposon), DNA sequencing, patient-derived cell cultures, and genetically engineered mouse models.
