Brexit sucks...probably. The issue is we don't really know what the vote really means, or even if we'll actually leave the European Union in the next couple of years at all. However one thing cannot be ignored and that is the two-fingered salute to our European colleagues from 52% of the UK voting population that got out of bed on a rainy Thursday.
I am privileged to work in one of the UK's top cancer institutes at the top UK University: the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, a department of the University of Cambridge. The institute, and the University, is an international one with people from all across the globe, many of the staff in my lab have come from outside the UK and they are all great people to work with. I dislike the idea that these people feel insecure about their future because our politicians have done such a crap job on governing the country.
I'd like to keep the international feel so if you're still thinking that working in the UK would be good for you (and your a genomics whiz) then why not check out the job ad for a new Genomics Core Deputy Manager. We're expanding the lab and putting lots of effort into single-cell genomics service (10X Genomics and Fluidigm C1 right now). I'm looking for a senior scientist of any nationality to help lead the team, with NGS experience, and ideas about single-cell genomics.
