Opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Scientist (#111713) @ MRC Functional Genomics Unit, University of Oxford -- Oxford, UK
Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
BACKGROUND:
We are seeking an ambitious and self-motivated scientist interested in using next-generation analyses and network profiling techniques, and applying them to `omics' profiles (genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics) obtained for disease-relevant iPSC-derived cells. This post, funded largely by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), lies at the heart of a large international consortium (http://www.stembancc.org) that is generating and interrogating induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cells to better understand, and identify novel therapeutics for, a range of human disorders. You will join a research group that has established an international reputation for genome-scale data analyses, disease genomics and cellular pathway analyses. From your cellular `omics' perspective, you will be able interact with many of the 35 StemBANCC partners working on diverse challenges, from cell identity through to disease phenotype through to therapeutic response.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The post-holder will report to Caleb Webber. S/he will also work closely the other StemBANCC post-doctoral scientists and with other post-doctoral scientists and graduate students in the Webber group. Importantly, s/he will also work closely with a range of StemBANCC consortium members on a range of disorder-focussed and iPSC-focussed questions. The post-holder will be expected to adopt and advance the interpretation of relevant Omics methodologies as they relate to the use of iPSCs in disease-associated research.

Interaction with other members of the Unit, University Department and University Medical Sciences Division will be encouraged where appropriate.

REQUIREMENTS:
A relevant PhD degree, experience of scripting (e.g. Perl/Python) and advanced UNIX/linux skills are essential. Expertise in current bioinformatics tools and resources, functional genomics and method development will also be desirable. Excellent organisational and communication skills are required, together with the ability to work well independently and within a team.

TERMS:
This fixed term position is available until 30 September 2017.

LOCALE:
The MRC Functional Genomics Unit, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK. Information about the work of the Unit can be found at http://www.mrcfgu.ox.ac.uk/fgu. Informal enquiries can be addressed to Dr Caleb Webber (caleb.webber[at]dpag.ox.ac.uk).

COMPENSATION:
Grade 7: GBP 29,837 to GBP 36,661, with a discretionary range to GBP 40,046 p.a.
