Position: Research Fellow - Nanoparticle and Liposome Probes and Tracers for Cancer Imaging
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemistry
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The appointee will design, synthesise, characterize and develop probes and tracers, primarily liposome- and nanoparticle-based, to underpin a range of cancer imaging and therapeutic modalities. This position is a key component of the newly established Cancer Research UK City of London (CoL) Centre. This brings together research groups at UCL, KCL, Barts/QMUL and the Francis Crick Institute to make major advances in the development of biotherapeutics for the treatment of cancer
Requirements: A PhD (or be about to be awarded a PhD) in Chemical Biology, Organic Chemistry or a closely related subject is essential. Applicants must have excellent experimental skills and substantial experience in synthetic organic chemistry and characterization of organic compounds, liposome/nanoparticle formulation and characterization, and in the purification and analysis of complex bioconjugates. There will be a high degree of interaction with other partners within the CoL Centre and multi-disciplinary objectives to be met. Excellent team-working and communication skills, and a keen interest in interdisciplinary research at the chemistry/physics/medicine interface, will therefore be required

The appointee will design, synthesise, characterize and develop probes and tracers, primarily liposome- and nanoparticle-based, to underpin a range of cancer imaging and therapeutic modalities. This position is a key component of the newly established Cancer Research UK City of London (CoL) Centre. This brings together research groups at UCL, KCL, Barts/QMUL and the Francis Crick Institute to make major advances in the development of biotherapeutics for the treatment of cancer. We aim to develop new approaches to combine imaging and in vivo biochemical analysis with spatially targeted and image-guided physical therapies, and are developing new reagents and methods for CEST imaging, targeted phototherapy, photon beam therapy and image guided surgery. The post is funded by Cancer Research UK for 2 years in the first instance. Key Requirements A PhD (or be about to be awarded a PhD) in Chemical Biology, Organic Chemistry or a closely related subject is essential. Applicants must have excellent experimental skills and substantial experience in synthetic organic chemistry and characterization of organic compounds, liposome/nanoparticle formulation and characterization, and in the purification and analysis of complex bioconjugates. Knowledge and experience of peptide or lipid synthesis is desirable but not essential. There will be a high degree of interaction with other partners within the CoL Centre and multi-disciplinary objectives to be met. Excellent team-working and communication skills, and a keen interest in interdisciplinary research at the chemistry/physics/medicine interface, will therefore be required. Please note, appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (salary ?30,922 to ?32,607 per annum, including London Allowance of ?3,092) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
