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 hands-on Senior/Principal Scientist with expertise in Genomics & Immunology who is a self-starter, proactive and would like to work in a dynamic environment of a start-up. The successful candidate will investigate the regulation of the non-coding genome in lymphocyte subsets using state of the art genomics approaches and develop new ones. 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. In this role you will be accountable for all aspects of laboratory activities and deliverables including optimising and executing relevant studies.

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.
