We are looking to appoint a highly motivated computational postdoctoral fellow to join Roser Vento-Tormo’s group at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
About the Role:
You will lead a project focused on integrating single-cell multiomics and imaging datasets to understand immune development and response to infections. This work will be in collaboration with Dr. Ashraful Haque at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
The mission of the Vento-Tormo lab is to implement state-of-the-art genomics & spatial methods to study the composition and dynamics of cellular microenvironments, as well as to develop new computational tools to facilitate interpretation, data analysis and integration of single-cell datasets (www.VenToLab.org). The lab is based at the Sanger Wellcome Institute (WSI) a dynamic, multi-disciplinary, innovative institute in Cambridge (UK) and works closely with other teams single-data within the cellular genetics program and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) to advance in the genomics field.
You must be familiar with genomics, and will play a vital role in writing up studies. You will have the opportunity to be embedded in a large community of computational and experimental scientists. You will be integrated in the Vento-Tormo lab, a highly collaborative, international work environment with well-experience colleagues in single-cell and spatial data production, analysis and methods development (www.VenToLab.org).
As a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cellular Genetics Programme, you will be joining a collaborative and cutting-edge environment. The Programme encourages everyone to network and to showcase their research, including at our weekly seminar series. In addition to support from the Sanger core areas of Scientific Operations, Management Operations and ICT, within the Programme the Cellular Genetics Operations teams provide comprehensive multidisciplinary support to help with everything from processing samples, delivering analysis pipelines, to assistance with fellowship applications. The Sanger Institute also supports PDFs by offering various training opportunities, chances to network, and has a PDF committee in place to ensure our PDFs are supported throughout their posts.

Whilst the developments around COVID-19 continue to evolve, the Wellcome Genome Campus is closed for all but essential functions and facilities.
People remain at the centre of everything that we do and the majority of our staff are now working remotely to ensure continuity of operations, making use of remote communication and collaboration tools.
Interviews will be taking place virtually and the successful candidate should expect to be fully supported through remote on-boarding and working from home until the Campus re-opens to all staff. This approach may vary for individuals located overseas and/or where a visa is required and starting will be based on a number of factors, we will be able to provide specialist advice to those affected candidates.
Please apply with your CV and Cover Letter outlining your suitability for the role.
