UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
RESEARCH ASSISTANT IN MOLECULAR GENETICS AND IMMUNOPHENOTYPING OF CANCER
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, DIVISION OF STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN 

Grade 6: Salary in the range £27,328 - £28,982 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Research Assistant in Molecular Genetics and Immunophenotyping of Cancer to join the group of Dr David Church (Academy of Medical Sciences Clinician Scientist Fellow). The group is based within the Oxford Centre for Cancer Gene Research (OCCGR) led by Professor Ian Tomlinson and located at the WTCHG. The group’s main interests lie in understanding the relationship between tumour genetics, immune response and clinical outcome in colorectal and endometrial cancers, with particular focus on the subset of tumours with ultramutation caused by POLE mutation.

We require a research assistant to help with the characterisation of the preclinical models we have generated and to assist with the genetic analysis and immunophenotyping of colorectal and endometrial cancers more broadly. The work will involve standard experimental methods including (though not limited to) DNA extraction, PCR, cell culture and western blotting, and there will also be an opportunity to gain experience in the analysis of large datasets – including those we have generated and the TCGA series. Training will be provided in all techniques as required, and experience is less important than technical and academic ability, enthusiasm and quality of work.

You will have a good honours degree in a relevant subject, academic and technical ability and be able to learn rapidly and to master several techniques. You will also be able to demonstrate commitment to high standards, including record keeping and have good oral, written and electronic communication skills. You will need to be able to work both as part of a team and with some degree of independence and a demonstrable interest in medical research is desirable.

The position is available for 1 year in the first instance, with the possibility of extension and funded by Cancer Research UK.

Applications for this position are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
