Consultant Molecular Pathologist with Interest in Immuno-Oncology
Applications are invited for the position of Consultant Molecular Pathologist to work at the Sutton site of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in the Centre for Molecular Pathology(CMP). The Royal Marsden (RM) is a world leader in cancer research, treatment and education. Together with our academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), we are the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe and the only National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre specialising in cancer in the UK.
The CMP at the Sutton campus of the ICR and The Royal Marsden brings together world experts in molecular pathology, bioinformatics and translational research. The centre’s research objectives aim to expedite the process by which personalised medicine is embedded as a routine part of cancer care for patients. The focus will be to develop molecular diagnostics and biomarkers for cancer, to allow patient treatment to be personalised. Researchers aim to identify reliable biomarkers of disease prognosis or treatment response, and new molecular targets fora range of tumour types. This will drive the development of novel anti-cancer drugs.
An opportunity has arisen to join the CMP as a Consultant Molecular Pathologist in translational immuno-oncology. The post-holder will be expected to support the development of translational research in immuno-oncology based on the extensive trials portfolio in immunotherapy at The Royal Marsden. The post is funded by the RM/ICR BRC and by the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The post-holder will be expected to have a track-record in translational oncological research and molecular oncology techniques, ideally within the field of immuno-oncology and attract peer-reviewed grant funding/fellowship and/or industry funding.
