Postdoctoral Training Fellow in Cancer Bioinformatics (Dr Syed Haider) (489)



Under the leadership of Dr Syed Haider, we are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Training Fellow to join our Breast Cancer Research Bioinformatics Team.
We are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatics postdoctoral researcher to apply and develop computational approaches that can identify new therapeutic candidates for aggressive breast cancers. The successful candidate will employ computational approaches to meaningfully integrate genomic profiles from public and in-house clinical cohorts with genome-wide perturbation screens (CRISPR-Cas9) to identify high-confidence therapeutic candidates.

The successful candidate will also have opportunities to optimise/extend our existing computational pipelines for pre-processing of big data in breast cancer (genomics, single cell and spatial technologies). Given the multidisciplinary nature of this position, the successful candidate is expected to play a key role in liaising with clinical and wet-lab scientists, as well as write up of research results in a highly collaborative environment.

General information on Post Doc's at The ICR can be found here.

Key Requirements

The successful candidate must have a PhD* in a computational/numerical subject, have programming and scripting experience, and possess basic knowledge of biology. A background in analysis and interpretation of genomic datasets is essential, in particular CRISPR screens.

The ICR has a workforce agreement stating that Postdoctoral Training Fellows can only be employed for up to 7 years as PDTF at the ICR, providing total postdoctoral experience (including previous employment at this level elsewhere) does not exceed 10 years

*As a minimum requirement candidates must have submitted their thesis by the start date of their employment and awarded their PhD within the six month probationary period.
