Type: Academic staff

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral researcher to join Dr. Simon Poland’s advanced imaging group at the Comprehensive Cancer Centre at King’s College London. Building on previously conducted research at King’s college London, the selected candidate will work closely with our team to develop novel optical imaging strategies to enable the complete optical interrogation of tumour derived spheroid models, to understand how cancer cells are able to dissociate from the primary tumour, evade immune surveillance and invade surrounding tissues.

The successful candidate must have attained a PhD degree (or close to completion) in Physics, Engineering, Mathematics or related subject. The post holder will be required to design, develop, and be responsible for the delivery of internationally competitive research. Emphasis is placed on highly motivated, team-oriented, creative individuals able to independently tackle original scientific projects.
