Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Preclinical Molecular Imaging
Radiotherapy and Imaging, The Institute of Cancer Research
Dr Gabriela Kramer-Marek’s Preclinical Molecular Imaging Team focuses on the development of innovative pre-clinical imaging biomarkers for non-invasive mapping of specific receptors involved either in tumour cell response or in resistance to novel treatment approaches, with an emphasis on cancer targeted and immune-based therapies.
We are currently looking for an outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow to work on the development of probes for image-guided delivery of novel therapeutic approaches to improve surgical precision and local control in neuroblastoma (NB). The post holder will investigate the potential of anti-GD2-mediated near-infrared photoimmunotherapy (NIR-PIT) to eradicate residual cancer cells and induce anti-tumour immunity in mouse models of NB
The applicants should have a PhD in cancer imaging, biotechnology, molecular biology, or similar and have a strong background in immunology and molecular imaging techniques. Personal Home Office Licence (either current or historic) is essential.
This is a fixed-term appointment for 2 years in the first instance. Appointments will be made at £38,607 p.a. inclusive experience (£32,844 p.a. starting salary for pre viva applicants who are still awaiting PhD Award after thesis submission).
