    This role is primarily responsible for supporting SAGC users to appropriately design genomics-related projects and to analyse and interpret their data. Working collaboratively with researchers across different disciplines, you will have a varied and interesting workload across projects in different areas of genomics, leading bioinformatics analyses with varying levels of complexity.

    There are significant opportunities for professional growth and development through exposure to data sets from different genomics technologies including single cell and spatial transcriptomics. Staff are expected to enable research by leading the development of reproducible, standardised pipelines for genomics data analysis and, where necessary, develop new methods and pipelines. Your career development will be supported and you will be encouraged to publish your research and to collaborate on major funding applications to national and international funding bodies.

    You will also be supported to develop your bioinformatics capabilities; ensuring that the SAGC can remain at the forefront of genomics. It is expected that you will have interest in and develop your capabilities in at least one specialist area of bioinformatics.

    • Where needed develop and implement new bioinformatics approaches, methods or data visualisation approaches.
    • Contribute to/or lead the drafting of reports and publications.
    • Contribute to/or lead the drafting of applications to major funding bodies.


    • MSc, PhD, or equivalent experience, in either bioinformatics, computer science, physics, statistics or other relevant discipline
    • Prior experience with at least one of the following scripting languages: bash, R, Python and Perl
    • Have a broad understanding of at least two of the following areas and a significant interest in developing a deep understanding in at least one:
      • Transcriptomics: bulk RNAseq, scRNAseq, spatial transcriptomics
      • Genomics: variant, haplotype and diversity analysis, genome assembly, metagenomics, epigenetics
      • DevOps: version control: test driven development and continuous integration, containerisation using Docker/Singularity
      • Systems biology: multi-omics data integration, network analysis
      • Statistics: linear models, ANOVA, hypothesis testing
      • Visualisation: data visualisation and User Interface/Experience design
      • Workflow systems: Snakemake and/or Nextflow
      • Other Omic's technology: metabolomics, proteomics


    This role is offered for a 2 year contract on a full-time basis.
