Current Vacancies

Cancer Research UK RadNet City of London is training the next generation of leaders in the field of radiotherapy.
We’re supporting the growth of the radiation research community by actively recruiting for new research fellows, technicians and group leaders.
See the current vacancies below.

Research Fellow – Radiation Biology & Cancer Immunology

We are looking to appoint a Research Fellow in Radiation Biology and Cancer Immunology at the UCL Cancer Institute. The post involves working on a research programme focused on understanding the mechanisms by which radiation can modify the immune landscape to allow it to be targeted with cancer immunotherapeutics such as immune adjuvants, immune checkpoint inhibition or adoptive cell therapy.

The research will focus on the study and manipulation of co-inhibitory and co-stimulatory pathways using external beam radiation in murine cancer models. The successful candidate will be joining a vibrant community of immunologists and research teams focused on improving outcomes for patients treated with radiotherapy.

The post is funded for 18 months in the first instance with possibility of extension.

Key requirements

The successful applicant must have a PhD in immunology, molecular biology, cancer biology or similar scientific discipline or equivalent experience.

The postholder will have previous experience with murine tumor models (subcutaneous and intravenous injection techniques) including experience of imaging techniques in live murine models, cell culture and cell selection.

The applicant should have demonstrable research experience in the analysis of graphical and statistical data and appropriate training in molecular biology and genetics, including vector design, production, and purification. Knowledge of tumour immunology and expertise in tumour microenvironment and immune memory is essential.

An NIHR Academic Clinical Lectureship is designed to support applicants who have completed or submitted a higher degree (PhD or MD) to continue their academic career with a post-doctoral fellowship. At UCLH/UCLH we have two ACL posts that will be advertised shortly in clinical oncology at ST year 3 and above. These fellowships are for a maximum of 4 years or until CCT is reached and combines 50% clinical training with 50% academic training. UCL is part of the City of London CRUK Radnet Radiation Research Unit of excellence and is a supportive environment to continue your academic training.

The successful candidates have the opportunity to work with a number of group leaders and clinical academics from across UCL/UCLH and an academic and clinical training programme will be tailored to facilitate their success.

RadNet City of London spans across four leading institutes, namely UCL, King’s, Barts, the Crick, and unites multi-disciplinary expertise across London to cultivate a modernised radiation research landscape. Our research focus is predicated on the view that cancer cure by radotherapy can be improved by an improved understanding of the following themes:

  • Radiation Resistance Including cancer evolution and cancer stem cells
  • Radiation Combinations How the TME and immune system affect response to radiotherapy
  • Targeting and Technology Advanced radiotherapy techniques, including PBT, that converge on the tumour for children and young people’s cancers
  • Outcomes and risk predictions Personalising radiotherapy using artificial intelligence, computational models and improved tumour imaging
  • Clinincal translation Establish a clinical trials platform, to ensure a strong forward and reverse translational elements to the above themes

We are seeking top early-career scientists with a major focus in radiation biology and radiation oncology who would be interested to join our team. We have several junior group leader positions available and wish to explore how their ambitions align with our strategy.
