Position: Research Fellow/Associate/Senior/Principal Research Fellow/Associate Bioinformatics (TRACERx study)
Institution: University College London
Department: Cancer Institute
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The focus of the project is the investigation of lung cancer evolution and the development of high throughput bioinformatics techniques to decipher cancer mutational signatures, tumour evolutionary trajectories and interactions with the tumour microenvironment through the disease course. The candidate will be expected to work within the TRACERx informatics team at the Francis Crick Institute and utilise evolutionary, mathematical and statistical methods to deconvolute cancer evolution based in particular but not exclusively upon next generation sequencing data
Requirements: The successful applicant will have a proven track record of publications, have previous experience with NGS data analysis, be fluent in at least one of the following programming languages: C++, Python or R, and is expected to have strong skills in the field of genomics and desirably one or more of the following: cancer biology, evolutionary biology, statistics, mathematics or machine learning. Prior experience with data analysis based on integrating large datasets is particularly desired

and self-motivated bioinformatician post-docs to work on evolutionary biology in lung cancer based around analysis of next generation sequence data and the tumour microenvironment from the TRACERx longitudinal lung cancer program at the Francis Crick Institute. Professor Charles Swanton is the lead investigator of the TRACERx initiative, a large scale longitudinal genomics study in lung cancer utilizing deep multi-region tumour sequencing. The focus of the project is the investigation of lung cancer evolution and the development of high throughput bioinformatics techniques to decipher cancer mutational signatures, tumour evolutionary trajectories and interactions with the tumour microenvironment through the disease course. The candidate will be expected to work within the TRACERx informatics team at the Francis Crick Institute and utilise evolutionary, mathematical and statistical methods to deconvolute cancer evolution based in particular but not exclusively upon next generation sequencing data. In addition, the candidate will be expected to have multidisciplinary skills working with clinical and scientific staff and a desire to excel in the field of cancer evolutionary biology. This post is funded for one year in the first instance. Key Requirements The successful applicant will have a proven track record of publications, have previous experience with NGS data analysis, be fluent in at least one of the following programming languages: C++, Python or R, and is expected to have strong skills in the field of genomics and desirably one or more of the following: cancer biology, evolutionary biology, statistics, mathematics or machine learning.
