Postdoctoral Research Assistant
University of SheffieldDepartment of Oncology
Contract Type: Fixed Term
Working Pattern: Full Time
Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health
Salary: Grade 7 £28,685 to £32,267 per annum
Closing Date: 31st January 2013

You will work in the Academic Department of Clinical Oncology and will be responsible to Dr Andrew Chantry. Research interests of the Sheffield Myeloma Research Team are in determining the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the growth in the bone marrow micro-environment of myeloma cells, the subsequent development of osteolytic bone disease and the interdependence between these two processes. Myeloma cells are known to stimulate osteoclastic bone resorption and inhibit osteoblastic bone formation thus uncoupling bone remodelling and leading to osteolytic disease.

You will be deployed in a number of studies examining the mechanisms behind the inhibition of osteoblastic bone formation and the development of therapeutic strategies designed to stimulate bone formation. Studies will include in vitro cell culture work and in vivo experiments using the 5T series of murine myeloma models. Experience in in vivo biology techniques, in cell and tissue culture techniques and microscopy including histomorphometry would be an advantage.
