Careers

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a hybrid research organisation with large scientific infrastructures sitting alongside world-leading Faculty and leading edge scientific projects.

Due to the unique nature and scale of our science, we provide opportunities across a broad spectrum of occupational and career groups. 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.

Our main job groupings are listed below and give an indication of the range of opportunities available. Job adverts and role profiles will detail the qualifications and experience required for specific vacancies.
