    Submitter

    BACKGROUND

    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.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • 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
