The role 

The successful candidate will investigate the regulation of the non-coding genome in lymphocyte subsets (initially) using state of the art genomics approaches whilst also developing new ones. You will collaborate closely with other experimental and data scientists to guide drug target discovery efforts. As an independent thinker, you will plan and implement experiments, interpret the data, and distil complexity into concise communication, while providing scientific coaching and mentorship for less experienced team members. You will have an integral role in the venture, take ownership of the work and demonstrate an exceptional work ethic towards discovering breakthrough medicines that will improve patients’ lives.



  • PhD in a biological discipline, or MSc and demonstrable experience in the fields above. – Demonstrable experience in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation and sequencing.
  • Demonstrable experience in one or more of the following assays: ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq and 3C based assays.
  • Demonstrable technical expertise in basic molecular biology techniques.
  • Familiarity with web-based interfaces for genome analysis. – An enthusiasm for and demonstrable knowledge of the key questions and recent developments in gene regulation, epigenetics and the genomics field.
  • Ability to design research project plans including short-term and long-term experimental plans, needs assessment, prioritise follow-up studies (timelines, costs, deliverables).
  • Ability to design and run experiments, interpret data, troubleshoot, and suggest next steps and identify alternative approaches.
  • Ability to develop and improve new skills and knowledge necessary to successfully support assigned projects
  • Proven ability to set up and optimise complex molecular techniques.
  • Ability to work independently as well as thrive working in a multidisciplinary team.
  • Strong communication skills and ability to communicate complex ideas to specialists and nonspecialists.

Preferred Experience

  • Experience in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry.
  • Understanding of drug discovery and development processes.
  • Proficiency in working in a UNIX based computational environment. – Track record of working with genomics data, such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, DNase-seq, ATAC-seq, Capture-C.
  • Ability and willingness to manage people and projects.
  • Experience in the development of NGS analysis pipelines for large numbers of samples.
  • Familiarity with genetic engineering of cells.
  • Experience supporting and collaborating with computational scientists.
  • Knowledge and experience in GLP standards.
