Mesothelioma, Nanomaterials, Cellular Stress Pathways
The Marciniak group studies the role of stress signalling pathways in human disease (http://www.med.cam.ac.uk/marciniak/). We combine fundamental biochemistry, cell biology and the study of patient samples to identify pathological mechanisms, therapeutic targets and novel therapies (see Dickens et al 2016 FASEBJ, Chambers et al. 2015 eLIFE, Chen et al 2015 eLIFE, van 't Wout E.F.A et al 2015 PLoS Pathogens, van 't Wout E.F.A et al 2014 Hum Mol Genetics for examples). The Marciniak group is based in the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (http://www.cimr.cam.ac.uk), providing an excellent infrastructure and a vibrant research environment. We are seeking an enthusiastic, dynamic and ambitious post-doctoral fellow, to complement our group and to develop therapeutic approaches for malignant mesothelioma using novel nanomaterials. The vacant post is at Research Associate (Post-Doc) level and so a PhD in a relevant discipline is required. Experience with cancer cell biology, proteomics, and/or nanomaterials are highly desirable.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 30 months in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
