The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. The Institute 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 ICR leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment. Under the leadership of Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FRS, the Institute is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre.

The Royal Marsden opened in 1851 as the world’s first hospital dedicated to cancer diagnosis, treatment and research. Today, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust operates as a world-leading specialist cancer hospital whose mission is to continue to make a significant national and international contribution to cancer research and treatment, so that more people are cured, and quality of life is improved for those with cancer. The Royal Marsden, therefore, plays an important role in championing change and improvement in cancer care through research and innovation, education and leading-edge treatment.

The ICR and The Royal Marsden work in close partnership and together they form the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe and are rated as one of the top five cancer centres globally. In 2006, 2011, and again in 2016, The Royal Marsden and The ICR were awarded a grant from The National Institute for Health Research to establish the UK’s only designated Biomedical Research Centre for Cancer, which drives pioneering research into the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer, and to translate advances in biomedical research into patient benefits. This acknowledges their position as the leading academic and clinical partnership for cancer in the UK.

The ICR and The Royal Marsden are now seeking to appoint a Team Leader in MRI Physics in their Joint Department of Physics, Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging. The successful candidate will be an established leader with a substantial track record of excellence and impact in MRI physics research and development. The appointee will pursue an independent research programme in MRI physics, which complements existing strengths at The ICR and The Royal Marsden, and will build a thriving team of clinical, translational and pre-clinical MRI research to deliver the research objectives. The successful candidate will provide intellectual leadership in MRI physics across both institutions and will execute and evaluate new and existing research strategies that will have relevance to MRI imaging. S/he will be the MRI physics clinical lead in The Royal Marsden. The post-holder will be employed by The ICR with an honorary contract with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust where they will be the MR safety officer for the Trust.
