Based in the Northern Genetics Knowledge Park (Executive Director: Professor John Burn), a world-class genetic research centre aimed at fundamental improvements in human health. Genome instability is of pivotal importance in using genome discoveries to address the major degenerative diseases, including cancer, that are associated with an increasingly aged population. Maintenance of genome integrity is also a key factor in stem cell biology. You will work in the new Crucible Laboratory (Director: Professor Tom Kirkwood) formed to promote interdisciplinary research and to catalyse collaborations between the University of Newcastle�s world- leading research groups in ageing, cancer and human development. This is primarily a research position and you will be expected to develop a strong research programme of your own. This will be in an area of genome instability, with preference for research related to cancer. There are three other lectureships within the Crucible Laboratory based at the International Centre for Life and closely linked to the 5*-rated Institute for of Human Genetics (Director: Professor Tom Strachan).
