Quantum information technologies based on individual photons are now reaching the marketplace. NPL is leading the development of metrological techniques and standards to quantify the performance of quantum photonic components and systems; a principal example is quantum key distribution. This involves accurate and precise characterisation of optical sources, components and detectors at the single-photon level. Through collaborations with industrial partners and EU national measurement institutes, NPL has developed this capability for traceable calibration of quantum photonic hardware.

NPL is an active industrial partner in the UK Quantum Communications Hub, whereby this expertise is available to technology developers in partner research groups. A vacancy exists for a physicist or engineer to work on this research and development programme.

Aspects of the role include:

• Working with internationally-leading industrial and academic collaborators
• Designing and constructing robust experimental apparatus
• Conducting rigorous experimental investigations
• Diligent recording, analysis and interpretation of data
• Designing and testing of software for experimental control and data analysis
• Presentation of results at scientific/technical meetings and conferences

6792| The Institute of Cancer Research, Division of Clinical Studies| Postdoctoral Training Fellow - Paediatrics| The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment. Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FMedSci, the ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced and ambitious scientist with good interpersonal skills to join the Translational Research group in the Molecular Diagnostics department.

The department is located in the Centre for Molecular Pathology and works together with Cancer Research UK in their Stratified Medicine Programme. It is also a designated Genomic Medicine Centre (as part of the West London GMC) leading the cancer stream of the 100,000 Genomes Project. The Centre for Molecular Pathology is a state-of-the-art facility bringing together translational science and molecular diagnostics and is one of the few specialised cancer molecular diagnostic laboratories in Europe. The department provides a reference Molecular Diagnostics Service for solid tumours and haematological malignancies for several NHS Trusts and Cancer Networks, as well as leading innovation in translational research and clinical trials.

We are seeking an enthusiastic scientist to join a highly-motivated team delivering a national clinical study of genomic biomarkers in paediatric solid tumours to aid in the implementation of precision medicine trials.

The successful applicant will apply targeted high throughput sequencing (HTS) for the detection of diagnostic, prognostic and predictive tumour biomarkers in childhood cancer.

6785| Division of Molecular Pathology, ICR, The Institute of Cancer Research| Postdoctoral Training Fellow – Image analysis (x2)| We seek two highly motivated Postdoctoral Training Fellows to join the Yuan lab at The Institute of Cancer Research, London (ICR) and work on the TRACERx project, the largest study of lung cancer evolution in a collaboration with Professor Charles Swanton at the Francis Crick Institute.

The main focus of the Yuan lab is to develop new ways of studying tumors by fusing histological image analysis, ecological statistics and bioinformatics (www.yuanlab.org). Our aim is to understand how the microenvironment of cancer cells, such as the surrounding immune cells and stromal cells, helps or prevents cancer growth with ecological theories. Our work has changed the way we think of the microenvironment and its critical roles in different cancers by examining cancer cells in the spatial context of its microenvironment.

Together with the world-leading Swanton team and several major universities and hospitals in the UK, we aim to reveal the evolutionary dynamics of non-small cell lung cancer in this pioneering study tracking cancers from diagnosis to relapse. The successful candidates will lead the development of new histology image analysis tools to analyse histological slides generated in this study, alongside outstanding collaborators who will perform next-generation sequencing, imaging and immunology analysis. This exciting project will enable the discovery of new biomarkers predictive of treatment resistance and clinical innovations to change how we treat lung cancer.

The successful post holders will provide image analysis expertise for developing new tools to process histological images of lung cancers. They will enjoy the highly collaborative nature of this project, work closely with an excellent team of scientists in clinical science, biology and immunology. They will have the opportunities to learn about latest technologies and travel to conference, excel in coordinating between programming and explore new research areas in medicine.

ICR were ranked first in the Times Higher Education league table of UK university research quality from the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) for our high impact publications. We are world leaders in identifying cancer genes, discovering cancer drugs and developing precision radiotherapy. Together with our hospital partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four centres for cancer research and treatment worldwide. Our Cancer Research UK Cancer Therapeutics Unit is the largest academic cancer drug discovery and development group worldwide. We discover more new cancer drugs than any other academic centre in the world.

Applicants must hold a PhD in Computer Science, Systems Biology, Engineering, Ecology or Statistics. Knowledge/experience in histological / pathological image analysis is highly desirable but not essential.

Appointment will be on a Fixed Term Contract for 3 years, with a starting salary in the range of £29,960 to £42,820 p.a. inclusive, depending on postdoctoral experience. The expected start date is 1 January 2017 with certain flexibility. The successful candidate will be based in Sutton, Surrey.

Additionally, these components will also be used in quantum information science and technology, for example as a processor, or a node in a quantum network. Overall, applications range from laboratory systems for scientific research to practical quantum instruments.

NPL has developed novel chip-scale ion traps which are made using advanced microfabrication techniques. A second generation of devices with superior functionality is being tested now; these will be used, together with a range of techniques in the coherent control of trapped ions, to research entangled systems and their application to quantum metrology. A vacancy exists for a physicist or engineer to work on this research and development programme.

Aspects of the role include:

• Working with specialist, high-technology industrial collaborators
• Designing and constructing robust experimental apparatus
• Conducting rigorous experimental investigations
• Diligent recording, analysis and interpretation of data
• Designing and testing of software for experimental control and data analysis
• Presentation of results at scientific/technical meetings and conferences
