This is an exciting opportunity for someone to work employed by the University of Cambridge but embedded in a startup nearby in Cambridge. Accepted candidates would be working on InterMine (an open source biological data warehouse) and would be working towards identifying cancer drug targets. The key objective of this role is to develop an analysis platform using the data warehouse InterMine to help STORM advance their cancer research. The KTP program aims to develop future business leaders and thus offers excellent training (dedicated annual budget), supervision and mentoring.
