    Submitted by Eugene Mc Daid; posted on Friday, July 06, 2018

    Submitter

    BACKGROUND

    Human Genome Sequencing – Variants – Bioinformatics Pipelines – Omics Data – Cancer

    A new opportunity has become available with an outstanding academic institute in Oxford. We are looking to speak to a Bioinformatician to join a talented team of around 7 people supporting the analysis of human genome sequence data and translating genomics into the clinic to inform diagnosis and treatment of patients. This role is currently offered until March 2020, with the possibility to extend.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    In this role you will be involved in the development and application of bioinformatics pipelines for analysis of human genome sequencing data including alignment, calling, annotation and interpretation of single nucleotide, non-coding and structural variants. You will conduct analysis of data from rare disease and cancer patient's samples leading to the identification of disease-causing variants. The team are also keen on those with an interest in machine learning methods, as they start to explore these techniques for complex genomes sequencing datasets.

    In addition, you will also have the opportunity to work closely with the national 100,000 genomes programme, liaising with the team at Genomics England and providing bioinformatics expertise as required and appropriate.

    You will also conduct your own research projects in the development of novel bioinformatics tools and algorithms, and contribute to disease-specific research projects within the group.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Experience Required:
    • PhD in bioinformatics or statistical genetics
    • Strong post-doctoral experience in human genome sequence analysis
    • Excellent programming skills in languages such as Perl, C/C++, R, Python
    • Experience improving and maintaining bioinformatics pipelines
    • Good knowledge of genetic variant databases
    • Willingness to contribute to collaborative programmes such as GeL and DDD (Deciphering Developmental Disorders)
    • High level of self-motivation and initiative to work independently
    • Experience working with other omics analyses would be an asset
    • Excellent communication skills is essential

    TERMS

    The position is fixed until March 2020 in the first instance with the possibility of extension.

    COMPENSATION

    There is a generous range of benefits on offer including pension, 30 days holiday, discounted rates at a sports facility and childcare support services.
