Ncita Clinical Research Fellow in Oncology at Imperial College London

A new postdoc position in oncology is available at Imperial College London. This position is available for 5 years in the first instance. Potential candidates should apply before May 06, 2020.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow with experience in oncology to apply their skills at the cutting edge of imaging biomarkers in cancer research. You will be working on projects involving CT, MRI, PET-CT or PET-MR including associated novel radiopharmaceuticals and contrast agents, on a programme whose overall aims are to apply advanced multi-modal imaging to the study of cancer and cancer therapy. You will be primarily accountable to Prof. Eric Aboagye and will be jointly supervised by Dr Laura Kenny. Imperial College is already involved in world-leading translational imaging research, coordinated through the Imaging theme of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) led by Professor Aboagye. The post is funded by the Cancer Research UK accelerator - NCITA.

You will work within the Clinical Trials arm of The National Cancer Imaging Translational Accelerator (NCITA). NCITA brings together seven of the leading cancer imaging centres (Imperial College, Cambridge, ICR, KCL, Manchester, Oxford and UCL) to address gaps in translation of imaging biomarkers to clinical trials and to support clinical decision making. NCITA will establish a fast and robust cross-institutional pipeline to produce quality-assured locked down Imaging Biomarkers (IB) both for drug discovery within pharma clinical trials and within the NHS for areas of unmet clinical need. The key purpose of the post is to develop and manage clinical research studies and clinical trials in cancer imaging combined with traditional blood and tissue assessment. You will work collaboratively with the research teams, the wider multidisciplinary team and other NCITA centres and act as an expert resource for staff, researchers, research participants and patients.

The NCITA grant is funded for 5 years, and the PhD will be funded for 3 years but CRUK funding is renewed annually so the contract will be for one year in the first instance. Our lab is located in the bustling White City area, where Imperial College London is rapidly expanding; for example, recently the Chemistry department with whom the Aboagye lab has close ties has moved to this area, it also encompasses many innovative projects such as the Invention Rooms, Hackspace and several start-up companies. The successful candidates will have access to Imperial College Benefits including the unique and award-winning Post-Doctoral training centre. Interested candidates will have to complete an online application to be considered for the post.
