Opportunity: 2 Postdoctoral Research Scientists (#113499) @ MRC Functional Genomics Unit, University of Oxford -- Oxford, UK
Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Monday, June 02, 2014
BACKGROUND:
We are seeking two ambitious and motivated scientists interested in combining next-generation analyses and network profiling techniques with `omics' profiles (genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics) obtained from iPSC-derived cells to better understand a range of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, as well as diabetes.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
These posts, funded largely by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), lie 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 investigate human disorders and identify novel therapeutics. You will be joining and developing within a research group that has established an international reputation for genome-scale data analyses, disease genomics and pathway analyses. From your cellular `omics' perspective, you will have opportunities to interact with many of the 35 StemBANCC partners and lead on diverse challenges, from cell identity through to disease phenotype through to therapeutic response.

REQUIREMENTS & PREFERENCES:
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 & COMPENSATION:
Two 3-year fixed term posts available from 1st October 2014 on Grade 7: GBP 29,837 to GBP 36,661 per annum

LOCALE:
You will work in the MRC Functional Genomics Unit within the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford. The FGU is a world-renowned centre for comparative genomics and research into neurological disorders. We offer excellent computational and laboratory facilities in the Henry Wellcome Building of Gene Function. Additional information about the Unit can be found at http://www.mrcfgu.ox.ac.uk, whilst informal enquiries can be addressed to Dr Caleb Webber at caleb.webber[at]dpag.ox.ac.uk. )
