The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FRS, the ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

We are recruiting a new team member to the Short Linear Motif Team in the Division of Cancer Biology to help characterise the motif-mediated interactome of the human cell. A 3 year Cancer Research UK-funded Technician position will be available to work on the study of the transient motif-mediated protein interactions of the cell cycle. The position will support a project targeting motif-mediated interactions to identify weak points in cancer cells for therapeutic intervention.
