Researcher – cancer drug delivery to tissue models of bowel cancer
College of Health Wellbeing&Life; Science
Grade 6 - £27.924 to £34,304 per annum, dependent on experience
We are seeking to appoint a Researcher to a fixed-term MRC-funded project
entitled “Breaking down barriers – re-purposing anti-fibrosis agents to
improve cancer drug delivery”.
Your role in this project will be to undertake cancer cell culture experiments
in a range of 3D tissue models in order to assess chemotherapy responses, and
the effectiveness of anti-fibrotic treatments in improving their delivery. You
will generate novel data using clinically-validated anti-fibrotic agents,
developing and analysing imaging data to assess chemotherapy targeting and
effectiveness, with the potential to contribute towards peer reviewed
publications building on our current work. You will collaborate with
colleagues at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS FT Trust and the School of
Clinical Dentistry at the University of Sheffield to develop tissue and
primary cell models.
The successful candidate will have undertaken postgraduate study and/or have
completed or be studying for a doctorate in a related area. They will have
practical laboratory experience, preferably involving cell culture and
microscopy imaging. Knowledge and experience of tissue processing and
histology is desirable but not essential. You will benefit from extensive
equipment access in the BMRC, as well as project-specific support within the
bowel cancer microenvironment /extracellular vesicle teams in the BMRC at SHU.
The University may be able to sponsor the employment of international
applicants in this role; this will depend on a number of factors specific to
the individual applicant.
