The Cancer Bioinformatics group (http://cancerbioinformatics.co.uk/) within the Breast Cancer Now Unit, School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences, at King’s College London, is currently seeking a Research Associate with expertise in genomics and machine learning in the field of translational cancer research to join our efforts in understanding the molecular and mechanistic basis of triple negative-breast cancer.
This applicant will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers whose collective aims are to implement analytical approaches for the integrative analysis of multi-omics data from model systems and patient studies of triple-negative breast cancers. The project will entail developing and implementing innovative computational strategies for the identification and integration of genomic instability patterns derived from DNA double-strand break and whole-genome sequencing data, which will then be associated with digitised morphological image data of primary tumours. The post will be supervised by Dr. Anita Grigoriadis.
Applicants should have a strong computational background and expertise in dealing with large genomics datasets. Excellent programming, data analysis and machine learning skills are required. Experience with diverse sequencing data is desirable. Applicants will hold a postgraduate degree or equivalent experience in a relevant role. The ideal candidate should be passionate about translating genomics into clinical practice and highly motivated to work in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment.
The post will be based in Dr Grigoriadis’ Cancer Bioinformatics Team at Guy’s Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital and will also involve interaction with colleagues based in the Breast Cancer Now Unit at KCL and the Breast Cancer Now Research Centre at the Institute of Cancer Research, London.
