The Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging at ICR has opened a broad-area faculty search in pre-clinical cancer imaging and therapy located at its Centre for Cancer Imaging. This scientist position (physics, chemistry, data-science) is full-time and focussed on the junior faculty level, while exceptional candidates could be considered for appointment at Full Professor level.

The ICR welcomes applications from scientists committed to developing a research program focused on pre-clinical cancer imaging and treatment, broadly defined. This includes, but is not limited to, novel instrumentation, image acquisition, visualization or quantitative processing techniques, novel chemistry/materials science for molecular imaging probe development, novel assay development and mathematical modelling.

 
Key Requirements

The successful candidate must have an interest in leading an independent research program and participating in our centre-wide efforts to develop and translate novel cancer therapies into clinical practice. The ideal candidate will have potential trajectory and/or demonstrated academic breadth, as exemplified by significant research experience resulting in high impact publications. The successful candidate will be expected to obtain substantial grant funding.

Along with completing the online application form, you will be asked to attach the following documents and failure to do so will mean your application cannot be considered on this occasion:

·       Full CV

·       Lists of major publications, achievements, research grants, distinctions. 

·     Research plan (five to six pages outlining your current research interests and research programme for the next 5 years) 

·   A PDF of a maximum of five key publications, or other research outputs (e.g. patents) that best demonstrate previous productivity 

·    You must also complete the personal statement section of the application form in the format of a covering letter including the names and contact details of three academic referees
