Contract Type: Temporary/Fixed term
Contract Term: Full time

We seek two highly motivated, proactive and enthusiastic computational biologists to develop advanced computational methods for the analysis of oesophageal cancer molecular and clinical data from the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) and the Oesophageal Cancer Clinical and Molecular Stratification (OCCAMS) Consortium. Both posts are funded through a Cancer Research UK Programme Award aimed to study key molecular modifications occurring in individual cancer patients. Specific projects will be discussed directly with the candidates. These may include the identification of somatic alterations contributing to cancer progression or the variation of intra-tumour heterogeneity in space and time in response to therapy. Our group has a long-standing interest in applying systems biology approaches to study cancer and we combine computational and wet-lab work.

The Ciccarelli lab is part of the School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Sciences of King’s College London and is currently seconded to the laboratory of the Francis Crick Institute where both posts will be based.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed on site or via telecoms, approximately two weeks after the closing date. Details will be communicated in due time.
