Opportunity: Senior Research Associate in Bioinformatics (#RA1051) @ Norwich Medical School -- Norwich, UK
Submitted by Leighann Kemble; posted on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
BACKGROUND:
The Norwich Medical School are looking for a creative and motivated individual to join a new dynamic, multi-disciplinary research team investigating the early life (neonatal) microbiota and host interactions.

The senior research associate will join Dr Lindsay Hall's lab at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the Institute of Food Research (IFR) which is funded by a Wellcome Trust New Investigator Award to Dr Hall. The groups research is focussed on complex gut microbial communities termed the microbiota. The group seeks to understand how these beneficial bacteria colonise and promote health and how disturbances may impact infection resistance.

The goal of the position is to use next generation sequencing platforms and advanced 'omic techniques and analysis to identify 'healthy' early life microbiota signatures.

REQUIREMENTS:
The applicant should have a strong background in bioinformatics preferably in a microbiology context, and have an interest in learning about early life microbiota-host interactions during health and infectious disease as well as outstanding personal initiative and communication skills.

An undergraduate degree in a relevant biological subject (bioinformatics, microbiology) is essential, as is a good publication record in peer-reviewed journals. Ideally the candidate would have experience of working with next generation sequence data (including 16s rRNA, whole genome sequencing, RNASeq and metagenomics) and/or other large bioinformatics datasets in a Linux / Unix environment.

LOCALE:
The project takes place in the Norwich Research Park (including UEA, IFR, John Innes Centre and The Genome Analysis Centre) which has a large and rapidly expanding bioinformatics community.

TERMS:
Fixed-term for three years or until 22/10/18, whichever is reached soonest)

COMPENSATION:
GBP 30,728 to GBP 36,661 per annum
