We are seeking to appoint a Professor or an Associate Professor in Cancer Immunology in the School of Medicine within the Academic Unit of Translational Medical Sciences, based at the Biodiscovery Institute on University Park. As a member of the Centre for Cancer Sciences (CCS) you will be able to enhance your academic and scientific career in a collaborative and supportive environment in a state-of-the-art new cancer research centre housed in the new interdisciplinary Biodiscovery Institute.  The CCS includes groups with strong track records in tumour microenvironment and immunology, patient-derived models of cancer both in vivo and ex vivo, and cancers of the breast, prostate and digestive system (colorectal, oesophageal, liver, and bile duct cancer), children’s brain tumours, blood cancers and melanoma. The CCS is part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, which has widespread expertise in bioinformatics and excellent facilities for data analysis, transcriptomics, RNA and DNA sequencing, and access to large patient datasets through our embedded links to the local Trusts and clinical researchers and clinical academics. Cancer Immunology has been a core strength at Nottingham, with key breakthroughs in cancer vaccines, early detection and diagnosis, and immunotherapies. We are looking to build on this success. Areas within cancer immunology which we wish to develop include immunotherapies (cell and antibody based), cancer vaccines, innate and adaptive immune responses to cancer, metabolic immune responses, and dendritic and T cell therapies.

You will be involved in leading, delivering and developing both the research and teaching aspects of the CCS, including supporting and teaching on the new undergraduate BSc and MSci courses in Cancer Sciences, which admitted their first students in September 2019 and which currently host over 160 undergraduates.

You will also be expected to contribute to the development of new courses and the research direction of Cancer Sciences within the Academic Unit of Translational Medical Sciences in the School of Medicine, developing new concepts and principles, as well as contributing to the design and award of funding for innovative research proposals from government, charity and/or industrial sectors. Another important aspect of the role is making a significant contribution to the academic unit via leadership, strategic planning, administrative management, and co-ordination of specific initiatives. Roles at this level will have a significant impact on the direction, strategy, objectives and results of the University by influencing and shaping the available resources as appropriate to meet the current and future needs of the University. 

You may have line management responsibilities including the responsibility for the professional development of the CCS team and contribute to the overall administration of the School. 

The post is offered on a permanent basis and is available to start from January 2023. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours) ; however applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week).
