Text: Research Fellow Cancer Sciences Location: Southampton General Hospital Salary: £30,395 to £37,345 Per annum Full Time Fixed Term for 3 years Closing Date: Thursday 25 April 2019 Interview Date: To be confirmed Reference: 1132619CM The position will be held in the Centre for Cancer Immunology at Southampton General Hospital. This is a newly constructed, dedicated research building that is the result of a significant fund-raising campaign. It builds on a 40 year history of pioneering immunology and cancer research at Southampton, and represents the first dedicated cancer immunology centre in the UK. The activities in this centre span from pioneering discovery science to applied research and preclinical modelling and, crucially, onto first-in-human clinical trials and beyond. The centre houses world-class research facilities, including state-of-the-art scientific laboratories and a clinical trials unit. The position is associated with the laboratory of Professors Ward and Ober who are relocating their research group from the USA to Southampton. Their interdisciplinary research programme is dedicated to the development of novel antibody-based therapeutics that in the past has led to several therapeutics that are currently in advanced clinical trials. The group also develops advanced microscopy techniques for the evaluation of novel therapeutics in cellular environments. Their research is supported by major grants from the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and support from collaborating biopharma companies. Over recent decades the research group has pioneered several new microscopy approaches, in particular single molecule technologies, such as multi-focal plane microscopy for the study of three dimensional subcellular dynamics of proteins. The post-holder will be a member of a large multi-disciplinary research group that develops and applies advanced microscopy techniques. The post-holder will develop and apply advanced single molecule approaches, including image analysis and software development, for the imaging of antibody-based drugs in live cells. The appointee will be highly motivated and excited by the challenges involved in developing approaches for the imaging of proteins that are of therapeutic relevance. The appointee is expected to have an outstanding background, including high quality publications, in the use of advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. Experience in software development is also desirable. Scientific knowledge in the areas described above equivalent to Ph.D. level is required.
