We have compiled a large multi-omic dataset comprising well-annotated sarcoma samples collected in a multiregion, multi-time point fashion (primary, local recurrence and metastasis). A large proportion of the samples have undergone whole genome sequencing through the 100,000 Genomes Project in parallel with other studies. The successful candidate will be the lead Bioinformatician for the study of tumour evolution and genetic heterogeneity of multiple sarcoma subtypes such as osteosarcoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours and chordoma. The other members of the multidisciplinary team will study the other omic (transcriptomic, epigenomic) components of these and other sarcoma datasets.
The Research Fellow - Bioinformatician will join a multidisciplinary team including Professor Adrienne Flanagan and Dr Nischalan Pillay (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/cancer/research/department-pathology) based at UCL Cancer Institute, and Dr Peter Van Loos Cancer Genomics group at the Francis Crick Institute http://www.crick.ac.uk/peter-van-loo).
