Vacancy ID: 011586
The Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Core Facility is a team that provides data analysis support to over 100 research labs at the Francis Crick Institute. The data is primarily sequencing data including data from Single Cell experiments, though we will analyse any data from an experiment that our biological collaborators within the Institute devise. In addition to working on collaborative research projects the group also advises researchers and bioinformaticians in the Institute on best practise and methodologies. We are looking for a suitable candidate with a at least a graduate degree, mathematical experience and good communication skills to join this team to help provide mathematical support both to members of the Bioinformatics Core Facility and also researchers in the Institute.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
