About Wellcome Sanger Institute

We turn ideas into reality

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a world leader in genome research and aims to deliver new insights into human and pathogen biology that change the course of biology and medicine. Our mission is to use genome sequences to increase understanding of human and pathogen biology in order to improve human health.

Our concept of Sanger as a Genome Institute is as an 'ideas factory', driven by a collective of imaginative scientists with a shared commitment to understanding genomes and their biological implications, with competencies and experience in their analysis, but with diverse expertise in biology, genetics, medicine, pathology, technology, informatics, computational science, mathematics and statistics, who work alongside each other, with a particular scientific culture, intellectual critical mass, and technical, IT and analytic support to develop and follow bold ideas in an agile manner.

We recruit locally, nationally and internationally and welcome applications and expressions of interest at every level. These range from junior technical roles requiring no formal scientific qualifications to pure 'research' roles where a PhD is essential; from having responsibility for an independent project or a piece of software, to managing large numbers of projects and people. We also have many roles that do not require scientific qualifications. Roles such as informatics, finance and administration are equally as important to our success. Applications from all candidates irrespective of age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status are welcome.
