I’ve just posted an advert for a Principal Scientific Associate to join the Genomics Core as the Deputy Manager. This is going to be a key position in the team as we’re building building our single-cell genomics capabilities. We’re looking for someone with a PhD in a relevant subject or with equivalent experience, you’ll have extensive hands on laboratory experience in molecular biology and NGS. And ideally you’ll have experience with single-cell genomics technologies. This is a senior post in our team and you’ll have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the science in our institute.
The Genomics Core at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, a department of the University of Cambridge, is one of several core facilities in one of Europe’s top cancer research institutes. We are situated on the Addenbrooke’s Biomedical Campus, and are part of both the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, and the Cambridge Cancer Centre. The Institute focus is high-quality basic and translational cancer research and we have several research groups with an excellent track record in cancer genomics 1, 2, 3. The majority of data generated by the Genomics Core facility is Next Generation Sequencing, and we support researchers at the Cambridge Institute, as well as nine other University Institutes and Departments within our NGS collaboration.
