Opportunity: Career Development Fellow in Computational Genomics @ University of Oxford -- Oxford, UK
Submitted by Dr Vivienne Collins; posted on Tuesday, August 07, 2012
BACKGROUND:
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Career Development Fellow to work at the heart of a cutting-edge multi-disciplinary initiative, the Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre (OPDC; http://opdc.medsci.ox.ac.uk/).

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The Fellow will work across a highly collaborative project to identify and understand the genes and pathways that underlie Parkinson's disease. Research will be centered on the laboratory of Professor Chris Ponting in the MRC Functional Genomics Unit and will take advantage of a growing set of phenotypic and genotypic data on the large OPDC patient cohort. In this, s/he will be supported by a vibrant computational genomics group with considerable experience in diverse genomic analyses.

The Fellow's research program will seek to generate new hypotheses on the causes of PD. Novel leads will be investigated subsequently in partnership with OPDC clinicians, physiologists and cellular and molecular biologists who are experts in a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, from transgenics to MRI to iPS cells.

Further information about the Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre may be found at: http://opdc.medsci.ox.ac.uk/

Informal enquiries may be directed to Professor Chris Ponting: chris.ponting[at]dpag.ox.ac.uk

REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants must have a doctorate in a relevant area of research, such as computational biology, bioinformatics, statistical genetics or comparative genomics. Applicants should be able to script competently, and have experience of current bioinformatics tools, resources, and method development. Evidence of leading and managing successful research projects will also be welcome.

LOCALE:
The post-holder will be based in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Sherrington Building, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PT.

TERMS AND COMPENSATION:
