A major component of the post will be to support the molecular profiling and biobanking initiative from studies looking at cancer evolution and resistance following radiotherapy. Honorary clinical contracts will be organised as required.
The position is funded till 31st October 2024 in the first instance.

Key requirements

This post would be ideal for an ambitious and skilled technician who is able to work collaboratively and wishing to develop new skills.
The post-holder will be organised and self-motivated and will have a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences or equivalent experience.
Excellent professional communication skills for dealing with clinical staff and experience of effective molecular biology techniques such as DNA/RNA extraction from human samples is essential.
Master’s degree in Biological Sciences is desirable.

For informal enquiries about the role please contact Dr Crispin Hiley.
