NEW OPPORTUNITIES for Postdoctoral Research Fellows
The Scientific Computing Research Unit (SCRU) invites highly motivated individuals to apply for a Genetics Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to be part of a multidisciplinary team investigating a gene expression cancer biomarker.
Scope of research:
The successful applicants will perform research in the area of RNA extraction from blood samples and sequencing as part of a multidisciplinary team developing a non-invasive early detection system for breast cancer. The candidate will be stationed in the Division of Human Genetics at UCT in the faculty of Health Science and be expected to work closely with a international collaborating NGS technology company.
Entry into the SCRU graduate programme is through a Masters degree. Only students with an Masters degree in Scientific Computing are accepted into the Doctoral programme. There are a limited number of Post Doctoral Research Fellowships are available.
We welcome applications from 2nd and 3rd year students who wish to undertake a vacation internship.
