    Submitted by Eugene Mc Daid; posted on Tuesday, June 18, 2019



    This role is ideal for a recent MSc Graduate looking to gain commercial experience with a biotech company who focus on the development of the next generation of personalised immunotherapies to treat cancer.

    The organisation will use its ground-breaking immuno-oncology approach to rapidly advance therapies into the clinic. The ideal applicant will be a talented and enthusiastic team player who will support the robust implementation of features in the bioinformatics software pipeline arising from research findings. This software is a highly specialised pipeline focused on the identification of neo-antigens from high-throughput DNA sequencing data to direct the development of targeted immunotherapies in cancer.

    This is a unique opportunity to work with a leading team of scientists with an international reputation for excellence in immuno-oncology research and to become a key contributor to an exciting project destined to change the course of cancer patient management in the clinic.


    • BSc or MSc qualification in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or a related technical field or equivalent practical experience
    • Expertise with at least one programming language
    • Experience working within a Linux command-line environment
    • Ability and willingness to rapidly learn new languages/frameworks as required
    • Excellent communication skills
    • A disciplined attitude towards developing robust, reliable and maintainable code
    Additional Requirements:
    • Experience with Git
    • Experience with scripting languages such as python or R
    • Groovy (or Java) experience
    • Strong knowledge of Bash
    • Hands-on experience with high-throughput DNA sequencing data
    Successful candidates will also possess the ability to take initiative, a desire to work in a dynamic fast paced team environment and an ability to manage multiple, concurrent projects. Prior bioinformatics experience is not required, but a willingness to learn is essential.


    Please do not hesitate to contact Harvey Uppal at huppal[at] or call (+44) 121 616 3407 to discuss this opportunity further.
