Opportunity: Lecturer in Bioinformatics @ University of Sheffield Department of Animal & Plant Sciences -- Sheffield, UK
Submitted by Darren Grafham; posted on Tuesday, June 11, 2013
The University of Sheffield is an internationally leading centre of excellence in biology, with world-class research facilities. Biology research at Sheffield was ranked joint 3rd in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and the University of Sheffield 66th and 101st in the world (QS World University Rankings 2012 and THE World University rankings 2012-13). We also have an outstanding reputation for the quality and breadth of expertise in biological teaching and are ranked 4th in the UK (Complete University Guide, 2012).

In recent years the barriers to data production in diagnostic and basic molecular biosciences have come down in a wide variety of disciplines resulting in explosion of data from processes such as imaging and sequencing. In Sheffield our basic molecular biologists and the NHS diagnostic services are seeking to increase our capacity for research and diagnostics in disciplines that depend on high-throughput data analysis. Among 5 departments, we are creating a new cross-disciplinary Bioinformatics Hub that will become the bedrock of research and high-throughput data processing for the University and NHS Trusts.

Animal & Plant Sciences (APS) is renowned for its work on behavioural ecology, plant ecophysiology, evolutionary ecology and population genetics, and supports multiple major field and lab studies of adaptation and speciation. This work is increasingly dependent on whole-genome sequencing and comparative genome analysis. We wish to appoint a talented genome biologist who complements our current strengths and who has a track record in, for example, genome assembly and analysis, environmental epigenomics, or using genomic data to test evolutionary or mechanistic hypotheses. Computational/statistical biologists who have a strong interest in creating computational or analytical tools (e.g. new algorithms, statistical methods) for wider community use are also encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record of research in a bioinformatics-led subject area relevant to the expertise in APS, and should have experience of delivering teaching to undergraduates.

Sheffield England

Grade 8 GBP 37,382 to GBP 44,607 per annum, with potential to progress to GBP 50,186
