We are seeking a talented and committed researcher to contribute to both our MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC IEU) and our Cancer Research UK funded Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Programme (ICEP).
Working with the IEU and ICEP teams the successful candidate will use Mendelian randomization and other causal inference methods to identify specific and actionably somatic molecular mechanisms that play a causal role in cancer predisposition and cancer progression, and support research aiming to elucidate the relationship between modifiable environmental and lifestyle risk factors and important somatic/tumour molecular phenotypes.
