Position: Senior/Principal Research Fellow (Senior Bioinformatician) - TRACERx study
Institution: University College London
Department: Cancer Institute
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The successful applicant for the bioinformatics position in the TRACERx initiative will be based within the Translational Cancer Therapeutics laboratory at the new Francis Crick Institute. The successful candidate will join a successful multi-disciplinary team of cancer evolutionary biologists and lung cancer translational research clinicians where all stages of novel cancer treatment, from design of therapeutics, through pre-clinical imaging, to application in the clinic are achievable within the UCL Cancer Institute and the Francis Crick Institute
Requirements: The role is ideally suited for a creative individual with a strong interest in cancer evolution, software development and testing, database analysis, and automation within a high throughput academic setting interested in working at the Francis Crick Institute. We seek a candidate with strong software engineering and programming skills who is keen to apply these skills to the field of cancer evolurionary biology. The successful applicant will 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. The candidate will be expected to work within the TRACERx informatics team 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 and lead a research program in preparation for future independence
