Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to support Radiotherapy Related Research (RRR) in the Division of Cancer Sciences. In particular, the post holder will play a key role in supporting Dr Gerben Borst within the Biomarker and Early Phase Trial Hub of the RadNet programme of radiotherapy research.
