The LMS is a world-class research laboratory where scientists and clinicians collaborate to advance the understanding of biology and its application to medicine. Funded by the MRC as part of UK Research and Innovation, the LMS has a collaborative working culture and a new state-of-the-art building next to the Hammersmith Hospital Campus.

Based in the Functional Gene Control Group (Group Head: Dr Mikhail Spivakov), the Senior Investigator Scientist will lead scientific research in the area of gene regulation, focusing on the logic of gene control by enhancers and the principles of enhancer-promoter communication.

The Group’s experimental models include human primary blood cells, cancer cell lines and human stem cells, interrogated using a combination of advanced experimental and computational techniques for chromatin and chromosomal interaction profiling, single-cell multiomics and CRISPR perturbations.

This is an exciting position that would particularly suit a highly experienced and motivated scientist who would enjoy dividing their time between their own project and team work, including training, co-supervising and helping junior lab members, sharing expertise and supporting collaborations.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant biomedical discipline, have a strong track record in gene regulation evidenced by publications and solid experience in establishing and troubleshooting wet-lab epigenomic techniques, including single-cell and CRISPR-based methods.

LMS offers a wide range of benefits including 30 days annual leave allowance, a defined benefit pension scheme, family friendly policies, access to EdenRed discounts for high street and online shopping, wellbeing support, and access to an employee assistance programme scheme.
