    Opportunity: Post-doctoral Research Scientist, MRC Functional Genomics Unit (#FGU10/516) @ University of Oxford--Oxford, UK
    Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Wednesday, October 27, 2010


    We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic post-doctoral scientist to join Prof Chris Pontingís research group in the 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. 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.


    • 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, together with the ability to work well within a team.


    • Expertise in sequence analysis tools in biological research, current bioinformatics tools and resources, functional genomics and method development will also be desirable.


    The position is available from 1 January 2011 and depending on experience, the post-holder will be appointed to either a 3 year Career Development Fellowship or an open-ended Investigator Scientist position.


    The post-holder will work in the MRC Unit within the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford. Additional information about the Unit can be found at


    Depending on experience, the starting salary will be in the range £26,022 to £31,758 pa. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, an excellent pension scheme and access to MRC training.


    Applications for this role must be made online at, ref FGU10/516.


    22nd November 2010. Interviews to be held: 6-8 December 2010.
