Job Ref:

Bioinformatician – Proteomic and Immunopeptidomic Data Analysis

Ref:  20174 AC


SCI are working with a client that is a well-funded and early stage biotech, which as part of their ongoing expansion, are looking to recruit a Bioinformatics Scientist. 


Our client has identified novel tumour-specific antigens derived from reactivated endogenous retroviral sequences and is using this discovery to enable the development of a range of pharmaceutical products including vaccines, biologics and cell therapies.  Importantly, these pharmaceuticals are non-personalised and thus able to broadly impact the needs of oncology patients.  This is an exciting opportunity to join a research programme that aims to support efforts to acquire and interrogate immunopeptidomic data from primary human tissue in order to discover, validate and quantify novel cancer-specific (neo) antigens.


You will:-

  • oversee the processing and analysis of proteomic and immunopeptidome datasets generated using LC-MS/MS platforms.
  • be responsible for advanced MS data analysis using existing software packages and through the development of novel algorithms.
  • have a PhD in proteomics/bioinformatics or a related subject and have an interest in the developing field of immuno-oncology.  You will also have a working knowledge of proteomics methods and the ability to work with MS-based proteogenomics data.


You must have:-

  • experience of software development in a life sciences commercial/academic environment 
  • knowledge of Rand or Python scripting languages
  • knowledge of proteomic data analysis


As well as the above, the following skills/experiences would also be desirable:- 

  • Experience with version control systems eg. Bitbucket
  • Practical knowledge of workflow management eg. Snakemake, Nextflow
  • Experience of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment
