Salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.
We wish to hire a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher in Medicine (Computational Biology) to investigate the translational implications of mechanisms underlying human tissue T cell immune responses. Graham Oggs group is studying lipid-specific and peptide-specific T cells in the blood and skin in order to define disease pathogenesis and to identify targets for future therapeutic intervention.
You will work jointly with Hashem Koohys group, specialised in machine-learning and computational biology and Graham Oggs group specialised in skin immunology. You will conduct research in a dynamic and highly collaborative environment of an internationally leading research institute. You will benefit from the institute and wider university expertise in immunology, computational biology, machine-learning and big-data science.
As well as analysis of RNAseq data (bulk and single cell), there will be opportunities to develop new models to explain differential responses of T cell populations during homeostasis, inflammation and cancer.
To be considered for this position you should hold a PhD in a relevant subject and have experience in at least one of the following; bioinformatics, machine-learning, statistics or data science. Experience in RNAseq analyses would be an advantage, and you should have excellent programming skills in at least one programming language preferably python or R.
The post is fixed-term for 3 years.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.
Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Wednesday 1 May 2019 will be considered.
