Job Details

Summary of Role

We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Training Fellow to join the Cancer Genomics Team at the Sutton branch of the ICR. Our goal is to implement cutting-edge informatics to analyse large-scale genomic datasets in collaboration with experimental investigators to identify and characterise genomic changes influencing the development and evolution of cancer. Our research is supported by grants from Cancer Research UK, The MRC and The Wellcome Trust, and we have an excellent track record in generating high-impact publications.

You will work as part of a team of inter-disciplinary data scientists who are experts in analysis of next generation sequencing data, machine learning and software development and therefore offering unique learning opportunities. Prior experience in biological science is desirable but not a perquisite for the position. The work will include application of existing tools as well as development of statistical methods using in-house and publicly available datasets such as the 100,000 Genomes Project.

Strong analytical skills are required in order to perform integrated analysis and visualisation of complex multi-omic data. You will have opportunities to create/optimise computational pipelines and develop new analytical methods. You will work closely with experimental biologists and it is essential to be able to communicate your findings effectively.

Applicants should hold a higher degree in mathematics/statistics/physics/computer science or a related discipline and have experience in programming and scripting.

The successful applicant will enjoy working as part of a multidisciplinary team interacting with internal and external collaborators. The appointee will excel in coordinating and exploring the medical research areas through exploiting these collaborations and be a highly motivated fast learner.

We encourage all applicants to access the job pack attached for more detailed information regarding this role. For an informal discussion regarding the role, please contact Richard Houlston via email on richard.houlston@icr.ac.uk
