    Opportunity: Senior Post-doctoral Scientist, Disease Genomics, MRC Functional Genomics Unit (#IRC13384) @ University of Oxford, UK
    Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Wednesday, February 09, 2011


    We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic senior post-doctoral scientist to join Prof Chris Ponting's research group in the internationally renowned MRC Functional Genomics Unit within the University of Oxford.

    You will join a research group that 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 Ponting's 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 group's emphasis from comparing genomes among species, to comparing those within a population; from evolution to molecular mechanism; and, from function to molecular pathoaetiology.


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


    You will work in the MRC Unit within the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford. The Functional Genomics Unit 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, whilst informal enquiries can be made to Prof. Chris Ponting at chris.ponting[at] For further information about the MRC please visit


    This open-ended position is available immediately. Starting salary will be in the range GBP 35,935 to GBP 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.


    Applications are handled by the RCUK Shared Services Centre; to apply please visit our job board at and complete an online application form.
