Tissue Bank Technician

Closes: Jan. 9, 2019, noon; salary: Grade 6: £28,660 - £34,189 with a discretionary range to £37,345 p.a.

<div> <p></p><p>An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a Tissue Bank Technician. Oxford Haematology is one of the largest academic haematology units in Europe and we are expanding the tissue banking programme for the blood cancers that we treat, so that we can use these precious resources donated by our patients, for research into how better to understand and treat these diseases.</p><br> <p>You will be responsible for biobanking peripheral blood, bone marrow and lymph node samples from patients with myeloma and lymphoma and for the analysis of these samples. As the study of these samples is the cornerstone of much of the research we do, you will play a critical role in the team. Duties will include the collection, processing and cryo-preservation of bone marrow, peripheral blood samples and tissue biopsy samples (such as lymph nodes) from patients. This entails preparing mononuclear cell preparations, selecting specific cell populations and performing FACS analysis to immunophenotype samples and to check the purity of cell population enrichment before cryopreservation. Further processing such as DNA and RNA extraction, and banking of fresh lymph node samples may also be required.</p><br> <p>The post is available fixed-term for 24 months, funded by Bristol Myers Squibb and Oxford University Hospitals Charitable Funds.</p><br> <p>You will hold a degree in a relevant biomedical or scientific discipline, with a demonstrable understanding of cell biology. Previous experience of working as part of a team in a laboratory environment with the ability to problem-solve and to plan and manage work schedules to deliver agreed targets is essential. You will have good attention to detail, communication, manual dexterity and record keeping skills. Previous experience of molecular biology research and FACS immunophenotyping are desirable.</p><br> <p>Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.</p><br> <p>The closing date for this position is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 9 January 2019. Interviews will be held in January 2019.</p> </div>

Postdoctoral Scientist in Leukaemia Therapeutics

Closes: Jan. 11, 2019, noon; salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

<div> <p></p><p>Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Scientist to join a highly motivated research team working under the supervision of Professor Sten Eirik Jacobsen, in the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology Laboratory, at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (www.imm.ox.ac.uk/home).</p><br> <p>The position, dedicated towards the development of novel small molecule therapeutics targeting the MDS stem cells recently identified by the Jacobsen lab (Tehranchi R et al, N Engl J Med 2010; Woll et al, Cancer Cell 2014), will be funded by OxStem Oncology, the first stand-alone company to be formed under the OxStem umbrella (www.oxstem.com). OxStem is a revolutionary spin-out company from the University of Oxford, founded by Professor Steve Davies, Professor Dame Kay Davies and Professor Angela Russell, which raised a record-breaking &#163;16.9M in its initial funding round. OxStem Oncology aims to identify new classes of drug candidates that will differentiate 'cancer stem-like cells' (CSLCs) to more benign states that will improve clinical outcomes and overcome resistance/relapse. The team will focus initially on Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and Myelodysplastic Syndromes with a view to expanding to other conditions over time. This is an extraordinary opportunity to work with world leading researchers and contribute to the development of innovative new therapies for areas of significant unmet medical need.</p><br> <p>You will hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant area and have previous experience in experimental application of molecular and cellular biology techniques, to the study of normal and/or malignant haematopoiesis. You will be a self-motivated, enthusiastic self-starter who can work with minimum supervision with good organisational skills to plan experimental bench-work and meet required deadlines. Excellent communication skills and the ability to be innovative are essential.</p><br> <p>The post is fixed-term until 2 November 2019 in the first instance, with the possibility of further extension.</p><br> <p>Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.
