The Molecular Oncology Laboratory, under the leadership of Professor Nicholas Turner, are looking to appoint a Data Scientist to work as part of their multidisciplinary team to deliver the next generation of biomarker-based clinical studies in breast cancer. The position will be line managed by Dr Ros Cutts, Senior Bioinformatician (Liquid Biopsy) at the The Institute of Cancer Research and co-supervised by Dr Sarah Filippi, Reader in Statistical Machine Learning in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London
The Molecular Oncology lab is increasingly producing more complex high dimensional datasets that require novel analytical approaches and they are looking to appoint someone with strong computational statistics/machine learning skills that can apply novel statistical approaches for data analysis.
The Molecular Oncology team focus on identifying and understanding resistance to breast cancer treatments with the objective of designing novel approaches to treating cancer. In addition, they are developing novel precision medicine strategies for breast cancer using circulating free DNA and other non-invasive assays of breast tumour phenotypes, with the aim to use such assays to personalise breast cancer therapy.
This appointment is made as part of the Cancer Research UK Convergence Science Centre, a strategic partnership between The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and Imperial College London (ICL) to integrate otherwise distinct disciplines to co-create new tools, technologies and methodologies to address challenges in cancer research to benefit cancer patients.
