This is an outstanding opportunity to join the Centre for Cancer Sciences, an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary group of around 35 academics working on cancer research and education.  We wish to appoint a scientist with outstanding potential within the fields of tumour microenvironment, cancer immunology, cancer bioinformatics, or cancer epidemiology. You will be able to build your independent scientific career in a collaborative and supportive environment in state-of-the-art new buildings with excellent equipment and technical support. You will be involved in delivering and developing both the research and teaching aspects of the Centre, including supporting and teaching on our new undergraduate BSc and MSci courses in Cancer Sciences, which admitted their first students in September 2019.

You will be supported to build a research group, develop new concepts and principles, and learn how to contribute to, design and gain support for research proposals from funding agencies. You will develop skills to devise, advise on and manage learning and research programmes, and you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the Centre via leadership, administrative, management and co-ordination of specific initiatives.
