COMPENSATION: Competitive with share options available
LOCATION: BioEscalator, Old Road Campus, Oxford
CONTRACT TYPE: Permanent
NUCLEOME THERAPEUTICS, a fast-growing biotech start-up that is leveraging a proprietary gene regulation platform, based on a decade of world-leading research from Oxford University, to unlock the non-coding genome for drug target discovery and development.
We are building a passionate, creative and dedicated multi-disciplinary team of scientists with expertise in gene regulation, genomics, machine learning, drug discovery and software development, whose mission is to decode and mine the regulatory “dark matter” of the human genome to transform drug target discovery and help deliver the next generation of genetically guided therapeutics. We are building a rewarding and fun environment where people embrace creative ways of thinking, take smart risks, and feel empowered to make a difference.
We are seeking a Senior Scientist with expertise in Immunology who is a self-starter, proactive and demonstrates ability to adapt to changing priorities in a fast-past environment of a start-up. The successful candidate will investigate how the non-coding genome regulates different lymphocyte subsets using state of the art genomics approaches (genomics training provided). You will collaborate closely with other experimental and data scientists to guide drug target discovery efforts. As an independent thinker you will plan and implement experiments, interpret the data, and distil complexity into concise communication, while providing scientific coaching and mentorship for less experienced team members. You will have an integral role in the venture, take ownership of the work and demonstrate an exceptional work ethic towards discovering breakthrough medicines that will improve patients’ lives.
