A position is now available for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to join the research group of Ana Cvejic, Peter Campbell and Open Targets partners at the Wellcome Sanger Institute (WSI).

Open Targets aims to provide evidence on the biological validity of therapeutic targets and provide an initial assessment of the likely effectiveness of pharmacological intervention on these targets, using genome-scale experiments and analysis. This pioneering public-private partnership between Sanofi, Celgene, EMBL-EBI, GlaxoSmithKline, and the Wellcome Sanger Institute, aims to provide a R&D framework that applies to all aspects of human disease, and to share its data openly with the scientific community(http://www.opentargets.org).

The project will combine state-of-the-art single-cell data generation with spatial transcriptomics to study the spatial distribution of diverse immune cells in cancer, and discover putative cell-cell interactions across the tumour microenvironment.

You will have a PhD with significant experience in molecular and cell biology. Knowledge in the field of immunology, cancer biology and inflammation would be highly advantageous. You will be able to demonstrate critical thinking, will be hard working, passionate about science, and keen to learn and improve skills in a supportive research environment. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team and will be tasked with proactively seeking and maintaining appropriate collaborations. You will also be expected to drive forward the project, working closely with biologists, clinicians and bioinformaticians within and outside the group to accomplish scientific objectives.

This position could be based at the Wellcome Sanger Institute or at the University of Cambridge in Ana Cvejic’s lab.

Essential Skills

•PhD in immunology, cancer biology, biological sciences (or similar)

•Extensive experience in a research environment with a well-established publication track record

•Demonstrable ability to lead the projects

•Extensive experience in flow cytometry and cell culture

Behaviours and Competencies:

•Highly organised

•The ability to effectively communicate with collaborators and occasionally present oral communication to large groups
