Research Fellow - In vivo Oncology, Gene Therapy, Tumour Mitochondrial Biology, at University College London
Institute/Location: University College London, Division of Biosciences, Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, London, UK
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Research Fellow position to join Professor Gyorgy Szabadkai team as part of the Mitochondrial Research Group. The team is interdisciplinary, merging computational and in vivo tumour biology, with strong cell biology and metabolism background. The job will be focused on carrying out in vivo experimentation on tumours by modulating their mitochondrial DNA using gene editing techniques. Thus previous experience in in vivo tumour work in mice is desired. The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible to carry out the experimental work on animals, and analysing tumours histologically and genetically. The in vivo work will be carried out in the Francis Crick Institute, in the PIs satellite group collaborating with Mariia Yuneva’s group. Strong support for genome editing and mtDNA genetics will be provided by Nick Jones (Imperial College) and Payam Gammage (CRUK, Beatson Institute).
The post is funded by Cancer Research UK and is available from January 2020 for two years, followed with the possibility of extension.
