Research Officer (Centre for Cancer Research)

The Research Officer will initiate and conduct research in the areas of post transcriptional and epigenetic regulation in colon cancer and intestinal development. The position will use state-of the art technologies (genetically engineered murine models, CRISPR/RNAi, proteomic approaches) to identify and characterize novel oncogenes in colon cancer and dissect their therapeutic relevance.

The position will work with support, guidance and mentorship from senior research staff including Associate Professor Ron Firestein with an increasing degree of autonomy as the researcher gains greater skills and experience.

Demonstrated abilities:

  • Proven to work independently and have publications in peer reviewed journals
