Applications are invited for the Research Assistant within the UCD School of Medicine.

The primary aim of OPTi-PREDICT is to fast-track the validation of clinical decision support systems (DSS) for breast and prostate cancer, in both the prognostic and predictive settings. For early-stage prostate cancer patients, we will develop the Pro-RISK CAL DSS, which will use a panel of serum-based biomarkers to determine the risk of having indolent or aggressive disease, and inform the need for specific treatments.

A two year Research Assistant position is available to undertake the next phase of validation and integration funded by Science Foundation Ireland. This is an advanced research focused role, building on your prior experience in anti-body based protein assessment in blood samples. You will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator. The primary purpose of the role is to develop multiplex ELISA assays using the MSD platform under best laboratory practice for the validation of biomarkers in patient cohorts specific to the clinical question.
