We are currently recruiting for junior group leader positions at the Clare Hall or Lincoln’s Inn Fields Laboratories of the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute.

These positions offer a tremendous opportunity for an ambitious young scientist to establish a world-class research programme in an interactive and supportive environment. Our research groups are extremely well supported: there is no requirement to obtain external grant funding, there are no teaching responsibilities, and we benefit from centrally funded cutting-edge core technology facilities.

Tumour Biology: tumour-host interactions, cancer models, human cancer genomics
Chromosome Biology: DNA damage, Cell Cycle regulation
Computational Biology: Bioinformatics, biological networks, image processing
