Growth Factor Signalling and Squamous Cancer Laboratory (Prof. Gareth Inman)

Senior/Principal Scientific Officer

Competitive Salary (range £24,776 – £51,113 depending on experience)

Permanent Post
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of Europe’s leading cancer research centres, performing cutting edge research into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development and progression. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies, with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics, proteomics and in vivo models.

A central vision of the Institute is to focus on the application/translation of our research in the clinical environment, whilst continuing to conduct cutting edge basic research to understand the mechanisms of cancer. To help realise this vision we are expanding our studies on growth factor signalling and squamous cancer development.

We have a vacancy for a permanent member of staff to help run Prof. Gareth Inman’s lab. This role will be most suitable for a research scientist who does not wish to pursue an entirely independent research career but who has the intellectual capability and organizational/management skills to run an effective lab. Alternatively we will also consider early career researchers who can demonstrate the enthusiasm and potential to grow their career in laboratory management.

Whatever your motivation for the role, you must possess experience of project and lab management and expertise in the interrogation of cancer model systems. You will also be required to oversee laboratory operations and facilitate collaborative activities within the laboratory and other institutions. In addition, you will assist and train staff and students and manage your own scientific projects.

You will have a relevant PhD, excellent organizational skills, a record of significant research experience using cell and molecular biology techniques and experience of in-vivo model systems would be an advantage. Previous experience of lab management and cancer research is preferable.
