[ccp4bb] Team Leader and Fellowship Opportunities at Institute of Cancer Research

The Institute of Cancer Research, London – Division of Structural Biology

Team Leader Positions & Independent Fellowship opportunities 

The ICR is committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer 

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, we are world leaders in discovering new-targeted cancer drugs, identifying new cancer genes and developing new forms of precision radiotherapy.

Under the leadership of our Chief Executive and President, Professor Paul Workman FRS, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) is ranked as the UK’s leading higher education institution for the quality and impact of its research. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, we are rated in the top five centres for cancer research and treatment worldwide. The ICR is committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

Team Leader positions

As part of a programme of expansion of the Division of Structural Biology, we wish to establish three new research teams at the Institute’s Chester Beatty Laboratories in Chelsea, Central London. We are interested in established investigators, for whom permanent Faculty positions are available, and in emerging researchers able to attract externally-funded Personal Fellowships, for whom we will provide mentoring, and a generous support package and transparent review process.

Reflecting the Institute’s mission, we are looking for researchers whose interests inform our understanding of the origins, development and treatment of cancer. Current areas of interest include signal transduction, genome stability, transcription regulation, RNA processing, molecular chaperones, targeted protein degradation, and structure-based drug design.

The Division is exceptionally well equipped for modern structural biology, with excellent managed facilities for protein production, biophysical analysis, crystallisation and X-ray diffraction, and computation, as well as Techni T12 and F20 cryo-electron microscopes, and a state-of the-art FEI Glacios/Falcon 3. The Division also has a 30% share of a Krios/K3 cryoEM facility at the Crick Institute, and rolling allocations of cryoEM time at the eBIC national facility, and X-ray diffraction time at the Diamond, ESRF and Soleil synchrotrons.
