    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

    BACKGROUND

    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.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    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.

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

    PREFERENCES

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

    TERMS

    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.

    LOCALE

    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 http://www.mrcfgu.ox.ac.uk.

    COMPENSATION

    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.

    HOW TO APPLY

    Applications for this role must be made online at http://jobs.mrc.ac.uk, ref FGU10/516.

    DEADLINE

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