Cambridge, United Kingdom
The Garnett lab works at the cutting edge of cancer research and has an international reputation for producing large scale datasets that catalyse efforts to find new clinical cancer therapeutics. An exciting new opportunity now exists for a software developer to join our informatics team.
The successful applicant will build software to explore large scale pharmacogenomic datasets and help disseminate the findings to the worldwide community. They will work directly with lab scientists and cancer researchers to facilitate their work. Candidates should have an interest in some, or all, of the following: data science, data visualization, web development and cloud architecture. They will have previous experience working with biological or other scientific data.
We use the latest genomic techniques including genome-wide CRISPR screens to find the molecular determinants of cancers and identify vulnerabilities that can be targeted by drug treatments. Our multidisciplinary team of lab scientists, data scientists and software developers work together to produce science that will have clinical impact.
Quality software is vital to the running of our lab and in analysing the experiments we perform. Our websites allow us to share our results with the international cancer research community – we currently host three world-leading and widely used cancer therapeutics portals.
