Position: Research Fellow - Bioinformatician
Institution: University College London
Department: UK Dementia Research Institute
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The project will focus on understanding early cellular changes happening during the onset of Alzheimer's disease using techniques such as single cell transcriptomics. These two roles offers the opportunity to further develop yourself as an expert in single-cell bioinformatics in the field of neurodegenerative diseases. Main duties include: analysing high-throughput data; writing scientific papers; working with Linux, HPC, software development, database management, statistics, Python and R; acting as key decision maker for determining the best sample preparation and sequencing methods to use within the group and communicating with other UK DRI research groups and collaboeators
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD in bioinformatics or computational science or mathematics/statistics and extensive knowledge of machine learning. Extensive experience with Linux, HPC, software development, database management, statistics, Python and R is essential, as is experience with the analysis of high-throughput data, including transcriptomics, genomics and single-cell RNA-seq data.
