Postdoc Position in Medicine at University of Cambridge

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to join University of Cambridge. Applications should be sent before October 28, 2018.

We are looking to recruit a full-time postdoctoral research associate to join Dr Menna Clatworthy in the University of Cambridge, Department of Medicine (

The post-holder will analyse and develop analysis methods for single cell RNA sequencing data on human organs that will contribute information to the Human Cell Atlas project ( The data will be generated using plate and droplet-based technologies as well as immerging technologies in collaboration with colleagues at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. We are particularly interested in tissue-resident immune cells within the renal tract, and their relationship with those in secondary lymphoid organs and peripheral blood.

We have already established these technologies within the lab, and the successful applicant would join other lab members involved in data analysis, aiming to identify and utilize cutting edge single cell sequencing and analysis techniques. In our experience we have frequently come across novel problems in this fast moving field which require custom and creative solutions.

The ideal candidate will have a computational background with an interest in applying cross disciplinary thinking to biological problems. The successful candidate will also advise other lab members on computational and statistical problems.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 30 September 2021 in the first instance.

Please ensure that you upload a covering letter and CV in the Upload section of the online application. The covering letter should outline how you match the criteria for the post and why you are applying for this role.
