Research Assistant (Human Cell Atlas)
Salary range: £18,422 to £23,027 plus excellent benefits

Are you a flexible and talented scientist with an understating of cell and molecular biology?

Molecular Biology Research Assistant Job @ Sanger Institute UK

We are looking for a Research Assistant to join the Human Cell Atlas team to work on tissue disaggregation methods to support the team as they work on this exciting large-scale international initiative which aims to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells—the fundamental units of life—as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. More about the Partnership to be found here: http://www.sanger.ac.uk/science/collaboration/human-cell-atlas-0

Work in this post will involve implementing, optimising and developing methods to dissociate a diverse set of human tissues to single cells in order to generate data for the Human Cell Atlas. Additionally, once methods are established the post holder will be responsible for sorting the primary cells (eg by FACS) and preparing them for library construction as part of a pipeline operation. This post principally requires someone who can learn new techniques rapidly and is capable of independent trouble shooting as part of the method development. Whilst some background in mammalian tissue culture would be advantageous, full training will be given.
Please note due to the experiential nature of the role, the post holder will need to demonstrate flexibility and be available to work outside of standard hours as required.

Essential Skills

  • A degree in biological sciences.
  • The ability to work and problem solve independently, in order to refine existing laboratory methods and develop novel techniques.
  • Good communication skills.
  • Ideal Skills
  • Laboratory experience in tissue culture technique and molecular biology
  • Experience working with tissue samples
  • Understanding of regulatory issues involved in working with human material

Other information

The Sanger Institute is a charitably funded research centre focused on understanding the role of genetics in health and disease. We use state of the art large-scale genomic approaches to drive world-leading projects to uncover the basis of genetic and infectious disease. Our goal is to provide results that can be translated into diagnostics, treatments or therapies that reduce global health burdens.

The Institute is located near Cambridge, UK on the stunning Wellcome Genome Campus. This growing and dynamic site is the British hub of genomic science. It hosts the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), Open Targets, a Biodata Innovation Centre and will soon host Genomics England Limited’s 100,000 Genomes Sequencing Centre. The Campus is also home to the Wellcome Genome Campus Courses, Conferences and Public Engagement (CCPE) programme.

The CCPE programme delivers training and engagement focused around genomics, its applications, and implications. Its vision is to inspire a range of audiences both on the Campus and beyond it, and make the world of genomics open and accessible to all. To help researchers to develop their skills and networks, the Institute hosts a range of scientific seminars with internal and invited speakers, scientific group meetings and skills development workshops. In addition the Campus is home to the Wellcome Trust Advanced Course and Scientific Conferences programme and the Wellcome Trust Conference Centre.

Our Benefits include: Defined Contribution Pension Scheme, Group Income Protection, Healthcare scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Workplace Nursery and 25 days Annual Leave, increasing by one day per year up to a maximum of 30, plus Bank Holidays. We also have a gym, two cafes, dining facilities, and a free campus bus service. Our thriving Sports and Social Club provides many opportunities to meet with people working across the campus.

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute welcomes applications from all candidates irrespective of age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status. Please include a covering letter and CV with your application.
