The Cancer Research UK Cancer Therapeutics Unit, within the Division of Cancer Therapeutics, is a multidisciplinary 'bench to bedside' centre, comprising around 160 staff dedicated to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. The Cancer Therapeutics Unit’s exciting goal is to discover high quality drug candidates for validated biological targets and to progress these candidates to clinical trial. All the scientific disciplines are in place to make this possible. Our biologists work alongside world-class chemists and drug metabolism specialists focusing on new molecular targets emerging from human genome and ground breaking cell biology research. This is an exciting and fast moving area of cancer research, and offers the opportunity to work within a multi-disciplinary environment using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment.
This Unit is now under the leadership of Professor Rajesh Chopra who has previously held senior leadership positions at AstraZeneca and Celgene and academic positions in the UK in haematological oncology and stem cell transplantation.
The Functional Proteomics unit is located at the Chester Beatty Labs, in Chelsea. This unit is led by Dr Jyoti Choudhary, also the Head of Mass Spectrometry Unit at the ICR.
The unit has leading edge Proteomics and Metabolomics technologies, including several Orbitrap and Time of Flight mass spectrometers.
This vibrant team are comprised of experimental and computational scientists that develop quantitative mass spectrometry to characterise diverse protein attributes. The team have expertise in large scale proteomics for basic and clinical applications. The unit is located within the Division of Cancer Biology.
The post is for 2 years, the full salary scale is £32,200 - £42, 500, the appointment will be based on previous postdoctoral experience. Future progression is based on annual performance review.
