The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FRS, the ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

The research of the Oncogenetics Team focusses on identifying and characterising inherited genetic variation influencing an individual's risk of developing prostate cancer. We are seeking a highly motivated individual with bioinformatics experience to work in our team, primarily on whole genome sequencing data from the ICGC international initiative. This role will analyse next generation sequence analysis of whole genomes from germline and somatic tissue from data QC to statistical analysis. In addition the post-holder will be also involved in various other projects including analysis of large-scale genetic datasets using publicly available packages, commercial software and their own code. 

Please refer to the attached job description and person-specification for full details.

We consider all applications on merit and have a strong commitment to enhancing the diversity of our staff.
