Cruk Phd Studentship Years Jobs Vacancy at National Physical Laboratory Teddington Jobs Details:
Do you want to be a part of a team, chosen by Cancer Research UK in their £100M inaugural Grand Challenge to create a ‘Google Earth’ view of tumours and help beat cancer sooner?
Applications are invited for 4 joint PhD studentships, awarded by Imperial College London and hosted at the National Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry Imaging (NiCE-MSI) at NPL. Studentships will be either experimental, or data science led, or a combination of both depending on candidates’ strengths.
The Grand Challenge: By pursuing a multiscale (organ to organelle) and multi-omics approach with a range of mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) techniques (MALDI, DESI, SIMS and ICP-MS), we aim to deepen our understanding of the interplay of genes, proteins, metabolites and the role of the immune system in cancer development and growth. As Cancer Research UK has stated “this underpins almost everything we do, from the discovery and development of new therapeutics and diagnostics, to the design of new treatment and prevention strategies”.
Methods: We will establish a multimodal imaging pipeline which gives a comprehensive, spatially resolved picture of the metabolism of solid tumours from subcellular to anatomical levels using in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro analyses.
What we are looking for: We welcome candidates for both experimental or data science led studentships. Candidates should have or expect to be awarded a 1st class/2:1 degree in a relevant subject (physics, chemistry, biology, maths, computing science or equivalent) want to use their scientific skills to work at the interface of physical and life sciences.
What the studentship offers: The project will offer cutting-edge research training, supported through both NPL, Imperial College London and Cancer Research UK itself. As well as a generous stipend offered from CRUK, financial support will also be made available for presentation of results at national and international conferences.
More information about the project can be found here: http://www.npl.co.uk/grandchallenge/
In addition to the Cancer Research UK project, the NiCE-MSI team has a wide range of research and commercial projects providing an excellent opportunity for learning, career development and innovation.
The team has an excellent publication output and provides a supportive environment to further research careers. A willingness and enthusiasm to work across multiple mass spectrometric modalities and methods as well as learn new techniques within the analytical sciences is necessary. A mutually supportive group ethos is encouraged and successful applicants will work as part of a motivated and dynamic multidisciplinary team.
