Research Assistant in Single Cell Genomics

Updated: 21 days ago
Location: Oxford, ENGLAND
Deadline: 31 May 2021

The Mead Laboratory has pioneered the development and application of single cell technologies for the study of leukemia. This is an exciting opportunity to work on an innovative project translating state-of-the-art single cell approaches towards clinical diagnostic application in blood cancers. The work will involve conventional cellular and molecular biology techniques as well as more complex, state-of-the-art protocols for single-cell multi-omic analyses and bioinformatic analysis. You will interact with several researchers within Professor Mead’s group and also with the senior researchers overseeing the outstanding core facilities available in the Institute.

The postholder will hold a first degree in a related subject, such as biology, biochemistry or molecular biology, together with substantial laboratory experience in molecular biology, genetics/genomics, and cell biology techniques (primary cells and tissue culture). Excellent communication skills and the ability to work independently and as part of a team are essential.  Experience of single cell genomics techniques and Illumina sequencing technology are desirable.

The post is available on a fixed-term basis until 31 May 2022, in the first instance, and is funded by Cancer Research UK.
