We are seeking an enthusiastic, ambitious and creative computational postdoc to join the Secrier lab ( at the UCL Genetics Institute on a UKRI-funded post, to lead an exciting project investigating mutational processes leading to quiescence and similar cellular states in a variety of cancers.

The post holder will be expected to apply various statistical modelling, machine learning and data integration approaches on bulk and single cell datasets (including multi-region profiling) to uncover the mutational triggers of tumour dormancy. Rich multi-omics datasets are available from collaborators at the Universities of Cambridge, Southampton and UCL Cancer Institute for this purpose. The post holder will also be expected to collaborate with our wet lab partners for the purpose of validation of the findings.

Funding for this post is available for 4 years subject to satisfactory performance.


The successful candidate must have a PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology, statistics, mathematics, computer science, physics or similar area, be fluent in R, Python, Perl, C++ or other programming language, have a good knowledge of statistics and a strong interest in cancer biology.
