Principal Bioinformatician

Updated: 26 days ago
Location: Cambridge, ENGLAND

The Teichmann lab is seeking an enthusiastic and skilled principal bioinformatician to contribute to the group’s research in the general area of the Human Cell Atlas. To perform this research, we make use of state-of-the-art technological advances, including multi-modal single cell genomics (e.g., transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility, and protein expression) and spatial genomics (e.g. 10x visium, FISH, in situ sequencing) technologies. We have access to extensive collections of sample repositories through collaboration with local and international groups. We are significant contributors to the Human Cell Atlas and the Human Developmental Cell Atlas, international projects to systematically map all cells in the body across the lifespan.

About the Role:

 Your primary activities and aims include:

1.    Leading dry lab staff members in the group

2.     Contributing to group’s scientific and organizational strategy

3.    Analyse large scale multi-modal single cell genomics and spatial genomics data to characterise the cell states present in the tissue and their communication

4.    Support and participate in the development of new computational methods to study cell state, cellular communication and gene regulatory networks

5.    Suggest validation strategies to confirm hypotheses and predictions from 3) and 4) above

About You:

You will manage other senior bioinformaticians by providing feedback and conducting regular 1:1s. You will support other junior staff members, postdocs and students with appropriate computational/quantitative techniques to ensure that they are able to carry out their work in a productive and timely manner. You will have excellent communication and time management skills as well as an ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment.
