Oxford

The Oxford Branch studies signaling pathways that influence cancer initiation and progression, with a focus on infection, inflammation and cancer epigenetics. We aim to advance cancer prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment.

About

Ludwig Oxford approaches the problems of cancer biology from several different angles. Our research program explores cancer susceptibility, initiation, progression, metastasis and resistance to therapy, and includes technical expertise essential to the development of novel clinical and research technologies—such as computational modeling and chemical biology. Over all, our specific areas of interest include the study of tumor heterogeneity and the regulation of gene expression, reflecting our interests in genetics, epigenetics, the tumor microenvironment, cell signaling and gene expression. Our branch has recently launched a multidisciplinary research program focused on upper gastrointestinal cancers, with the aim of developing novel approaches to preventing, diagnosing and treating such malignancies. Our laboratories are housed in the Old Road Campus Research Building, and we are affiliated with the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Tumor Models

Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM), Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and Oxford Big Data Institute, Old Road Campus Research Building, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford, UK.

Grade 7: £32,236 – £39,609 p.a

Only online applications received by 12:00 PM (noon, UK time), 28th October, 2019, will be considered.

Ludwig Oxford and the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics seek a motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to develop and optimize state-of-the art orthotopic xenograft models in the bowel to generate a robust and reproducible platform of human and mouse syngeneic xenograft models. Our aim is to identify key events in cancer initiation and develop new cancer therapeutic strategies. The position is based in the labs of Prof Xin Lu and Prof Simon Leedham.

The successful candidate will hold or be close to completing a PhD in molecular/cell biology or other relevant subject. Experience of cell culture and a personal home office license (or equivalent) is essential.

Experience in xenograft work and/or orthotopic tumor models would be advantageous.

More information about the position and its responsibilities is available here.

Applications must be made online by 12:00 noon on 28th October 2019.

Research Engineer

Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM), Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and Oxford Big Data Institute, Old Road Campus Research Building, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford, UK.

Grade 7: £32,817- £40,322 p.a.

Only online applications received by 12:00 PM (noon, UK time), 14th November, 2019, will be considered.

The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Oxford Branch, seeks a motivated research engineer to develop interactive analysis tools for personalised medicine discovery. Ludwig researchers have recently developed, published and patented a computational motion analysis framework, Motion Sensing Superpixels (MOSES), to interrogate high-resolution time-lapse imaging datasets, and are applying the method to better understand the mechanisms underlying cancer and to aid the development of personalised cancer therapies. We now require robust and easy-to-maintain software solutions that enable experimental biologists to use MOSES easily, effectively and independently.

Candidates should have a BSc or MSc in computer science, engineering or a related subject, experience with scientific programming and data science, and strong Python skills to work with existing code.

More information about the position and its responsibilities is available here.

Applications must be made online by 12:00 PM (noon, UK time), November 14, 2019.
