    Opportunity: Senior Staff Scientist -- Malaria Bioinformatics @ Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute -- Hinxton/Cambridge, UK
    Submitted by Sam Bowker; posted on Monday, October 09, 2017

    BACKGROUND

    A highly motivated Senior Staff Scientist is needed to work within a world leading Malaria genomics team that uses cutting edge technology to study the comparative and functional genomics of malaria parasites. Our group studies the genome biology and function genomics of parasites.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    We seek an enthusiastic and innovative individual primarily to provide wide-ranging support and strategic direction to the bioinformatics needs of the Malaria projects with our team. The candidate will get the opportunity to develop projects and collaborations that use comparative genomics, RNA-seq and single cell transcriptomic approaches to explore the evolution and function of genes in malaria parasites. The successful candidate will work closely with other computational and wet lab scientists within the team, as well as the extended Malaria Programme.

    The post holder will be able to advise and instruct others in bioinformatics analyses and may supervise students, junior staff and visiting workers.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Ph.D. in a relevant subject (e.g biological science, computational biology)
    • Extensive experience in bioinformatics
    • Extensive programming experience
    • Good understanding of sequencing, assembly and analysis technologies
    • Good understanding of sequencing-based functional genomics approaches
    • Demonstrable leadership within an analysis group
    • Ability to communicate work effectively to diverse audiences and to represent group at Scientific meetings
    • Ability to work on large number of projects simultaneously
    • Ability to interact productively with other members of a team
    • Supervision experience

    PREFERENCES

    • Broad and relevant parasitology knowledge
    • Good understanding of Malaria biology

    COMPENSATION

    Salary range £43,000 to £49,000 pa plus excellent benefits.

    Our Benefits include: Defined Contribution Pension Scheme, Group Income Protection, Healthcare scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Workplace Nursery and 25 days Annual Leave, increasing by one day per year up to a maximum of 30, plus Bank Holidays. We also have a gym, cafes, dining facilities, and a free campus bus service. Our thriving Sports and Social Club provides many opportunities to meet with people working across the campus.

    ABOUT US

    The Sanger Institute is a charitably funded research centre focused on understanding the role of genetics in health and disease. We use state of the art large-scale genomic approaches to drive world-leading projects to uncover the basis of genetic and infectious disease. Our goal is to provide results that can be translated into diagnostics, treatments or therapies that reduce global health burdens. The Institute is located near Cambridge, UK on the stunning Wellcome Genome Campus. This growing and dynamic site is the British hub of genomic science. It hosts the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), Open Targets, a Biodata Innovation Centre and will soon host Genomics England Limited's 100,000 Genomes Sequencing Centre. The Campus is also home to Wellcome Genome Campus Connecting Science. Connecting Science inspires new thinking, sparks conversation and supports learning by drawing on the ground-breaking research taking place on the Campus. Its mission is to enable everyone to explore genomic science and its impact on research, health and society.
