    Opportunity: Bioinformatician @ A thriving young biotech -- Cambridge, UK
    Submitted by Eugene McDaid; posted on Tuesday, December 03, 2019



    A thriving young biotech specialising in drug discovery & development for critical CNS conditions is seeking an exceptional Bioinformatician with strong analysis skills to join their select team. Working with novel human data, this is a stimulating, fast paced environment that offers significant creativity. The chosen candidate will have the chance to take part in ground-breaking research into debilitating diseases such as Parkinson's and Schizophrenia. This position is currently for a 1 year fixed term contract, with potential to convert to a full time post.

    This is a rare and exciting opportunity to enter into the formative years of a truly outstanding biotech company. This organisation is financially well-supported, has a great Cambridge-based location, and offers a competitive package.


    Key responsibilities may include:
    • Providing support for the CNS expression and epigenetics project, including analysis, data integration and systems approaches. Identification of novel drug targets and application of statistically robust methods
    • Conducting ad-hoc bioinformatics analyses in support of various internal projects, including analysis of internal and public domain expression data, public domain association studies, known variants, and pathway and network analysis
    • Maintaining a close iterative relationship with the biology teams that generate and consume data. You will provide analysis results in easily accessible formats and guide these teams in their use


    The ideal candidate will have:
    • A PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Data Science or a related discipline
    • Robust data analysis skills
    • A passion for creativity and innovative approaches in statistics
    • Experience with RNA-seq data or GWAS would be highly desirable
    • Extensive experience with R/Bioconductor and/or Python
    • Previous experience in neuroscience/CNS would be beneficial (but not necessary)
    • Fantastic interpersonal & communication skills, and ability to work closely and share complex ideas with biologists/non-informaticians
    • Able to work independently and generate fresh ideas and approaches


    For more information, send across your CV to efrancis[at] or call Emilie on 0121 616 3477.
