VACANCY: Research associate in genomics (MED02897)

Reference: MED02897 Date posted: 14 December 2021 Closing date: 23 January 2022 Applications are invited for a full-time research associate position in genomics.  This post, funded by a highly competitive Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Discovery Programme Award, aims to uncover mechanisms that guarantee efficient human DNA replication employing genomic approaches.  The project's primary objective is to discover how 1) DNA replication origins are specified through epigenetic mechanisms and specific recruitment factors and 2) DNA replication is regulated to allow faithful DNA replication.  The successful candidate will address how mutations in these processes contribute to genome instability and whether mutations that disrupt these mechanisms are enriched in cancer.
