  • Work in partnership with Senior Scientists and members of other teams.
  • Play a leading role in cross departmental research programmes to answer critical research questions.
  • Support the transfer of knowledge and technology between different teams.
  • Support more junior members with their research, troubleshoot and provide solutions.
  • Capture, analyse, interpret, and report data.  Working with bioinformaticians to drive research forwards.
You will bring the following
  • PhD or PhD with Post-Doctoral experience within Stem Cells / Pluripotent Stem Cells / Human Embryonic Stem Cells
  • Experience in transcriptomics / epigenetics and stem cell differentiation.
  • Transcriptomic analysis through sequencing e.g RNA – seq, ChIP – seq
  • Cell culture
  • Phenotyping using immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry or PCR for example.
