  • CRUK Cambridge Genomics core - Senior Scientific Officer

    Senior Scientific Officer
    Cambridge Research Institute
    £23,250 – £38,250 pa inc

    About the Role
    As Senior Scientific Officer you will be responsible for the provision of Illumina and Sanger sequencing services to Cambridge Research Institute researchers. We have three Illumina GA2x instruments and this is primarily a service role; although you may work on ad hoc research projects especially where those are heavily using Genomics core resources or involve technical development.

    You will use your scientific knowledge, expertise and broad practical molecular biology skills to provide excellent sequencing services. You’ll be required to be involved in cross-training with other members of the Genomics Core to allow cover of the other genomic services as required and to offer general support for large-scale genome analysis. You will also help in importing and modifying published procedures for proof-of-principle experiments and may be involved in developing new protocols.

    You will need to interact well as a member of the genomics core team, where you will have day-to-day line management responsibility for two junior staff. You will need to work well independently, prioritising your own workload, interacting with internal and external groups, producing project documentation and presenting research findings including writing and editing reports and providing help where required on preparing papers for publication.

    About You
    Educated to degree level in a relevant subject or with equivalent experience, you will have extensive hands on laboratory experience in molecular biology and be experienced with Sanger DNA sequencing. You should have a thorough working knowledge of real-time PCR, microarray technologies and nucleic acid extraction methods; direct experience with some of these Genomics technologies is required. Experience with Illumina, or other, next-generation sequencing systems would be very desirable.

    About the Cambridge Research Institute

    About the Genomics Core at CRI
    Genomics is one of several core facilities at CRI that offer services to scientists in the 21 research groups. The Genomics core provides many services including; DNA sequencing, Next-Gen sequencing, microarray, real-time PCR and nucleic acid extraction and QC. There is a team of seven people providing services to over 200 scientists.

    How to Apply
    Our online application process involves attaching your CV and a covering letter which should outline your interest in applying for this role and explaining how you meet the criteria as set out in the role profile.
