The group is based at the Cancer Institute at UCL and works on modelling inherited and acquired haematopoietic diseases using the zebrafish. The goal is to generate relevant models to study the genetics of these disorders and perform chemical screens to identify novel therapeutic targets for haematological cancers and pre-cancerous conditions.
Applicants must have or be in the process of submitting a PhD in a relevant biological science subject.
Experience of molecular cell biology (cloning, DNA/RNA extractions, qPCR, RT-PCR, W.blotting) is essential.
Experience of generating targeting constructs & working with zebrafish would be desirable.
