Opportunity: Senior Post-doctoral Scientist, MRC Functional Genomics Unit (#FGU10/515) @ University of Oxford--Oxford, UK
Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Wednesday, October 27, 2010
BACKGROUND:
We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic senior post-doctoral scientist to join Prof Chris Pontingís research group in the internationally renowned MRC Functional Genomics Unit within the University of Oxford. The group has established an international reputation for genome-scale data analyses, disease genomics, and function prediction for coding or non-coding sequence. This is one of three MRC-funded posts which form the core of Professor Chris Pontingís Computational Genomics group.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The post will provide core biological and computational expertise in disease and trait genomics and in next-generation sequence analysis, and thus will contribute to a shift in the groupís emphasis from comparing genomes among species, to comparing those within a population; from evolution to molecular mechanism; and, from function to molecular pathoaetiology.

REQUIREMENTS:
- A PhD / DPhil in the field of computational biology, bioinformatics, statistical genetics or comparative genomics, experience of scripting (e.g. Perl/Python), advanced UNIX and administering a Linux system are essential.

- Excellent organisational and communication skills will be required, together with the ability to work well within a team.

PREFERENCES:
- Expertise in sequence analysis tools in biological research, a strong publication record, current bioinformatics tools and resources, functional genomics and method development will also be expected.

TERMS:
This open-ended position is available from January 2011.

LOCALE:
The post-holder will work in the MRC Unit within the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford, based in the modern Henry Wellcome Building of Gene Function. Additional information about the Unit can be found at http://www.mrcfgu.ox.ac.uk.

COMPENSATION:
Starting salary will be in the range £35,935 to £39,723 pa, depending on experience. You will be entitled to benefits including 30 days annual leave, an excellent pension scheme and access to MRC training.

HOW TO APPLY:
Applications for this role must be made online at http://jobs.mrc.ac.uk, ref FGU10/515.

DEADLINE:
Application deadline: 19 November 2010. Interviews to be held: 6-8 December 2010.
