Bioinformatics Analyst (Fixed Term)
Department/Location: Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute
We are seeking a bioinformatician to join a large-scale whole genome sequencing study into the genetic causes of oesophageal cancer. The study is part of the International Cancer Genome Consortium and is led by Professor Simon Tavaré, director of the CRUK Cambridge Institute, and Dr Rebecca Fitzgerald from the MRC Cancer Unit.
The aim of the project is to understand the genetic architecture, history and clinical relevance of mutations in oesophageal adenocarcinomas through whole genome sequencing of 500 tumour samples, as well as samples from pre-invasive lesions and metastases. In addition, we are generating genome-wide data on methylation using arrays and transcription with RNA-seq.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
