Opportunities for permanent roles in a range of business sectors

Senior Bioinformatician

Mogrify is a cell therapy development company. We have developed a systematic big data-science approach powered by next-generation sequencing and gene-regulatory data to identify the optimal combination of transcription factors (in vitro) or small molecules (in vivo) for direct cell programming. This allows the conversion of any mature cell type into any other mature cell type without traversing a pluripotent stem cell- or progenitor cell-state. We are applying this approach to address the issues of efficacy, safety and scalability currently associated with cell therapy development.

We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious Senior Bioinformatician who wants to push the boundaries of cell reprogramming to join our expanding team at the Cambridge Science Park in Cambridge, UK.

  • Play a pivotal role in the R&D team, actively contributing to generate predictions for in vitro validation of human cell conversions using the Mogrify approach
  • Develop novel cell trans-differentiation algorithms and computational tools
  • Analyze complex datasets from challenging biological samples including single-cell technologies and integration of different types of data

Candidate profile:

  • Bachelors degree in computing, engineering, physics or maths
  • PhD in computational biology plus 3–5 years of follow-on experience, or MSc with equivalent follow-on experience
  • Knowledge of R and Python and experience in any of: Linux Sysadmin, MySQL, pipelines, or data integration
  • Experience in algorithm and bioinformatics software development
  • Experience with analysis of next-generation sequencing data
  • Proven ability to work independently within a collaborative team, and ability to manage complex projects under pressure and a sense of urgency
