UCD Post-Doctoral Fellow PD1 or PD2 (Systems Biology Ireland)

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2 within UCD School of Medicine (Systems Biology Ireland)

University College Dublin is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position to work on a collaborative research project in Precision Oncology Ireland (a Science Foundation Ireland Strategic Partnership Programme). The project is in collaboration with AstraZeneca.

Immune Checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have opened a new avenue for cancer therapy. However, responses are variable between different patients and cancer types. For instance, clinical studies of ICIs in epithelial ovarian cancer have yielded low response rates despite being an extremely antigenic tumour, with a very dynamic tumour microenvironment, The objective of this study is to work with AstraZeneca, systems biologists and clinician scientists to improve the efficacy of ICIs in low response cancers such as epithelial ovarian cancer – the most lethal form of female cancer.

The main aims of the project are to:

  • Map the intracellular signalling pathways in T-cells by which Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors (ICIs) targeting PD-1 and CTLA4 mediate their effects in epithelial ovarian cancer using a combination of multi-omics technologies (such as proteomics, single cell transcriptomics, and metabolomics) and mathematical modelling
  • Identify new targets in ICI signalling pathways that can serve as basis for improving ICIs and developing rational combination therapies between ICIs and systemic therapies including standard chemotherapeutics and targeted therapies such as PARP inhibitors.
  • Validation of selected drug targets and combinations in 2D and 3D organoid cultures.
  • Validation of novel immune checkpoint targets in clinical cohorts

This project is carried out by an interdisciplinary team at Systems Biology Ireland (SBI) at UCD and AstraZeneca (Cambridge, UK). This post will be located at SBI and jointly supervised by Prof Walter Kolch (systems biology, proteomics) and Prof Donal Brennan (clinician, single cell sequencing). The position may also include opportunities to visit AstraZeneca. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in (onco)immunology and cell biology, a solid working knowledge of signal transduction and omics methods to analyse signalling processes.

This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.
The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
