Postdoctoral Positions

 

Unravelling epigenetic systems disruption in leukaemia

Prof. Jonathan Bond

We are accepting applications for a two-year post-doctoral position to be supervised by Prof. Jonathan Bond (Systems Biology Ireland, UCD School of Medicine, and Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin).

The aim is to use systems biology approaches to understand the molecular effects of epigenetic system disruption, with the objective of identifying novel treatment avenues for high-risk childhood blood cancers.

The successful applicant will be part of the growing Childhood and Adolescent Leukaemia multidisciplinary research team that is based at Systems Biology Ireland, and which is closely integrated with the clinical Irish National Children’s Cancer Service at CHI at Crumlin. The post-doctoral researcher will work closely with two other scientists employed as part of this SFI-funded Frontiers for the Future project grant.

Salary will be based on the SFI pay scales for post-doctoral researchers (€ 39,631- € 51,035 per annum, depending on prior experience). 

Prospective applicants should apply through the UCD HR website (https://www.ucd.ie/workatucd/jobs/ and search for post number 014973). Informal enquiries can be made directly to Prof. Bond atjonathan.bond@ucd.ie.

 

Identifying epigenetic vulnerability in childhood blood cancers.

Prof. Jonathan Bond

We are accepting applications for a three-year post-doctoral position under the Precision Oncology Ireland (POI) programme (https://www.precisiononcology.ie/), to be supervised by Prof. Jonathan Bond (Systems Biology Ireland, UCD and Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin).

The aim of the project is to discover molecular vulnerabilities in high-risk childhood blood cancers using a combination of high-throughput approaches, including CRISPR/Cas9 screening. Promising therapeutic strategies will then be tested both in vitro and in vivo in mouse models of leukaemia.

The successful applicant will be part of the growing Childhood and Adolescent Leukaemia multidisciplinary research team that is based at Systems Biology Ireland and closely integrated with the clinical Irish National Children’s Cancer Service at CHI at Crumlin, and will work closely with another post-doctoral scientist employed as part of the POI research programme.

Salary will be based on the SFI pay scales for early post-doctoral researchers (€ 38,631- € 44,658 per annum, depending on prior experience).

Prospective applicants should apply through the UCD HR website (https://www.ucd.ie/workatucd/jobs/ search for post number 014106). Informal enquiries can be made directly to Prof. Bond at jonathan.bond@ucd.ie.
