Advanced Research Assistant - Open Targets

A Wellcome Sanger Institute contract - closing date: 22 September 2019

We are looking for a highly motivated Advanced Research Assistant to join a collaborative, large-scale project that aims to understand the cellular basis of neurodevelopmental disorders. The prospective candidate will be involved in studying how mutations in chromatin modifying enzymes affect neuronal development and cause disease. The primary goal of the work is to culture and differentiate human iPS cells with and without mutations to neuronal cell types, and profile the cells with a range of cellular and genomic assays. This is an exciting opportunity to be engaged in all aspects of a cutting-edge research project, from planning and pilot work to data generation and novel discoveries. [read more]
