We are seeking to appoint a talented, collaborative, and self-motivated scientist to fill a full-time on-site laboratory position shared between the WIC and CSU teams. The CSU team is responsible for running the current pipeline and the successful candidate will either be capable of, or be willing to learn, all aspects of the pipeline to contribute to a dynamic and fluid team. Much of the necessary equipment is in place and the team has access to bioinformatics and IT support as well as access to all the other core facilities at the Crick. The postdoctoral fellow will need to horizon scan in the development of future assay platforms by interacting with Crick researchers and maintain up to date knowledge of high-throughput technologies and machinery as well as virological and immunological techniques and advances. The important and time-sensitive requirements of the team’s activities mean that all team members must contribute and be capable of self-organising and solving problems in real time.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
