The Open Targets team at our 5 year anniversary celebration in June 2019

Join our team!

Open Targets is based on the stunning Wellcome Genome Campus, home to some of the world's foremost institutes and organisations in genomics and computational biology. We work in dynamic teams at the interface of academic and pharma industry science on a crucial problem, how to be more successful in making drugs. Working with us, you will be exposed to new technologies and a dynamic set of scientists dedicated to translational research.

Our posts are usually in either one of our academic partners, The Wellcome Sanger Institute or EMBL-EBI and have terms and conditions associated with the employer.

Important note: applications may be reviewed on an ongoing basis and the advertised post(s) may be filled before the stated deadline.

Advanced Research Assistant

Application closing date: 9 March 2021

The Human Genetics programme at the Wellcome Sanger Institute is looking for an Advanced Research Assistant to join the interdisciplinary highly collaborative team of academics, clinicians and drug discovery researchers. This is an exciting opportunity to apply single cell genomics to cells isolated from patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or healthy control patients. The goal of the project is to identify genetic variants that are associated with gene expression in intestinal cells, and then combine these with data from genetic studies of IBD patients to identify potential novel drug targets for IBD.
