“The mission of the Institute is to use information from genome sequences to advance understanding of biology and improve health. We achieve this through large-scale science that cannot feasibly be conducted elsewhere.

“Each of our five scientific Programmes is recruiting new faculty to build their scientific strategy for the future and we strongly encourage you to consider the extraordinary opportunities here for the next phase of your scientific journey.”

Professor Sir Mike Stratton,
Director of the Wellcome Sanger Institute
