An opportunity exists immediately for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to join the Targeted Therapeutics Laboratory investigating aberrant epigenetic pathways in haematological malignancies. The project involves close interaction with industry collaborators in order to investigate the precise molecular mechanisms and genetic determinants of therapy response for compounds in advanced clinical development. The laboratory incorporates a team of 6 researchers focused on identifying and testing novel targeted therapies for aggressive blood cancers.
